    Anyone know the actual height increase you gained on the 2.5 and 3.5? Thinking of picking up these springs but want at least 2.5. No less.

    Any idea how they pair with Falcon shocks or would a different set be recommended?

    They performed well. They soaked up bigger hits very nicely. However they are a little rougher over small stuff or daily driving. It never bothered me but im used to driving trucks. I think the 2.5 mc pairs well with the rocksports. My ride is great and my flex is top notch. Plus they are a whole lot cheaper to replace.

    Wow. That’s quite a bit. On a Rubi?

    Did you need a drive shaft?

    This is a lot and I dont want to go that high. Have to wonder if the springs have been tested where they are all the same? My plan is still to go MC 2.5 since I have 35's and hope it doesnt end up that high.

    For those that dont know which lift to get 2.5 or 3.5....I'm told it's the same exact lift, just the springs are different. A spring change out is no big deal if you want bigger later. Perhaps MC can chime in to confirm.

    For those that want to use stock ruby rims and dont like the thought of using a spacer there is a mod my shop will be doing so that I dont have to go that route. You lose travel in the front but only about an inch. For the time being it's worth it, to ME.

    And unless I'm missing something there's no reason you couldn't just do a 1" spacer later? Seems likely less expensive than new spring(s)

    I dont know much about spacers, I recall there being some negs to them?? My shop told me 300 bucks for springs, maybe there is some trade in value to that price?

    You can always use the metal cloak 2.5 inch springs for the 2 door on a 4 door, and that should yield about an inch less than what you would get on 4 door springs. If they seem to be lifting about 3-3.5 inch on 4 door springs.. They should yield 2-2.5 inch lift on 2 door springs installed on a 4 door.

    Looks like the shocks are backordered and out for a number of weeks. I didnt want to wait so I bit the bullet on some high dollar ADS shocks. Supposed to be the deal. It ought to be at the price. lol

    Are your springs as rusty as they look in the photos? What kind of environment are they in?
