Hmm I haven't measured exactly how much they compress on mine, but then again I just have the Currie 4" springs and 33s.
What springs will you be running, 3" or 4"? And what tire size? I know the other LJ has the 3" springs with 37s, but that doesn't seem like a whole lot of uptravel for racing out in the desert. Or is that classified
Restricted to 35" tires. Springs will be custom and classified. We have the ability to manufacture our own so we'll have plenty on hand to test while tuning the shocks.

Good luck with them. Also, let me know how you get them into the rear. The pig tail on the rear Currie springs is too narrow to get them in, and once in the coils they apparently tilt a lot since the rear coils are a lot wider.
Chmo did a write up on here, IIRC he squeezed them in through the coils, and wrapped them in foam or rubber or something to make their overall diameter wider and have them bounce around less.
I've got some videos of them in action in my build thread. Easily the best bang for my buck I've spent on the Jeep yet.
Time for a little update. The Unlimited Black Hole is truly living up to it's name!
Drivetrain is in and cage is mostly complete.
Gerald, do you think it would be at all difficult to make those PSC fenders work with your rocker guards? All the uproar over in PSC's giveway thread was entertaining, but getting past that the fenders seemed interesting and they look good on the Black Hole. Looks like a front axle swap is my next project (which is likely going to require a few things from you - I'll know on Tuesday after I pick it up), but maybe fenders after that.
