The Rubicon Express 3.5" spring are the best bang for your buck.

Rusty's Off-road sells 3" lift coil springs. I recently purchased a set. Quality stuff. Made in the USA.

I have heard good things about Rusty's but their high shipping costs has kept me from ordering from them.

I have the OME rear leafs, my final lift will be between 3- 3.5", I would rather add a small "puck" spacer to add a 1/2" than be stuck with a front to high.
I will have an aftermarket bumper, one of the import 1/8" steel ones.
Has any one ever "trimmed" a coil to slightly lower if needed?

Coil over ate my shock within a few months.

User beware.

How did a coil spacer affect the shock?? The shock does not know if it is a longer spring or a spring with a spacer?
Did the spacer put the shock out of it's travel range??
