I have been in contact with Stu and this is what I have so far with one more picture to add to the file.

Hi Stu,
The only other lift available is the spacer kit from RRO so I'm trying to make some kind of comparison. It may be apples to oranges but some things come to mind.
The RRO kit comes with an extension link for the sway bar, adjustable bolts for the lower control arms and new adjustable rear control arms. Did you find that these are not necessary with your coils?
What kind of life expectancy do your coils have?
Also do you have any more pictures or an instruction sheets that I could post with my little write up?
----------------------
Morning Bob,
In regards to the coils, they are produced here in Australia using the highest grade of Spring Steel available – X5K. The coils provide an approx 2” lift all round a level the Patriot nicely. I’ve had them in quite a few cars here in Brisbane & sent a few sets to a lucky few over there in the Sates. The feedback is 100% positive, only gripe is Price but hey what’s new!!

The coils are all Powder coated Yellow but can be black upon a customers request. 1 full set to do a Patriot come in around the $750-800 mark Australia Dollars. Coils are always on the shelf. The fronts are designed completely different to the stock units – all in an effort to produce a smooth consistent ride that soaks up the bumps.
It basically boils down to the fact that spacers are a cheap way of gaining lift and lift only. They often ride terribly as the factory geometry is not only out, but the coils are still the same soft spongy rate as before and it doesn’t help having too soft a coil when you’re raising the center of gravity. You don’t actually need any other parts – a vehicle’s coil should be the only way you should gain height in a vehicle.
There aren’t any instructions with my kit as yet but honestly you shouldn’t need it! I know everyone loves to “have a go” installing them but honestly it should be left up to a professional.
Cheers
Best Regards and feel free to send me questions!

Stu.

Stu is currently investigating a us distributor which will dramatically lower freight costs for you guys, he is also in the process of setting up a website as well

we are going to be doing the swap out of my RRO kit to his springs next Wednesday our time, this will be the perfect opportunity to do a direct comparison as well

I have to wait and see when someone state side gets them and puts them on a compass it not about compatibility as I know the same stuff under neathe I am just hoping for a side profile shot to see how the body look with the extra height to it.

there are a half dozen companies offering coils and full setup for the likes
of Cherokee s and Wranglers..if just a couple would step up with springs
we d have better pricing..

competition can be a pain in the butt for manufactures..but, is good for the consumer..

when the OEM coil s from the dealer are cheaper than aftermarket..then something really is wrong..
