Well, looks like the solution is to go back to stock. Damn. That was a lot of work for nothing.

Swap the springs out for the lighter ome coils. That is the solution. You can sell the heavy ones easily.

X2.

Zero inches of lift and more spring capacity don't really go hand-in-hand, the increase in capacity will lift your rig until or unless the weight brings it back down

The only thing I am running on my Jeep that is OME is the springs, and they are great. I am running Bilstein shocks so I have no opinion on their shocks.
