I don't understand how you can put 3 different coil rates into, and get 3/4" more lift out of a coil that has only .44" longer free length than a single rate coil that is considered to be a stiff (high spring rate) coil... all while getting an improved ride and increased range of motion. Especially when you compared to other Progressive and dual rate coils.

RK over RC. And if the springs are holding anyone back of RK for whatever reason change them out and use the rest of the RK lift.

I don't think the RK springs shown here are actually "Triple" rate springs. Just the regular progressive and linear springs.

That might be. I may have misunderstood the OP of the picture.

That doesn't change the free lengths given to me by Rock Krawler for their Triple rate coils though. The Rock Krawler coils pictured match the measurements given to me by Rock Krawler for their "Triple Rate" coils.

Lol! Yeah, that is my pic. I listed my measurements in the thread(18.938" front and 16.313" rear) where I posted this pic originally. If the triple rate springs measure the same, what are the benefits? Smoother ride?

I realized it was yours after I responded.

I don't see how they could be very different if they have the same free length and offer the same lift amount/ride height.

Ride might change... I don't know how much, but as far as suspension travel and droop, the Rock Krawler progressive (pictured) and Rock Krawlers new Triple Rate coils neither one will provide more travel than a typical linear coil spring of the same lift height.
