Rock Krawler 3.5" spring sag?

anyone know what kinds of sag i can expect with a smittybuilt bumper and warn m8000? i picked up a set of used 3.5" springs for the front of my jeep which currently has a 2.5" spacers, i planned to take te spacers out and run the springs to help level it out (sits pretty low in the front with the bumper and winch) but lookng at the springs there huge, there like 6 or 7 inches bigger than my stockers. wondering if they will be to big now

X2 what HeatTreater said. That is exactly what I got with my RK 3.5 lift kit.

  2. Rock Krawler 3.5 Mid Arm Flex/Bilstein 5100's
  3. Rough Country SS

These guys are correct sir. For our 3.5" Systems, the front lift is actually 4" +3/8 minus zero and the back lift is actually 3" +3/8 minus zero, hence the average of 3.5"!

It will very greatly depending on what kind of accessories you are running out back as well! Adding cantered loads is not a one to one relationship.

For example; if you add a spare tire carrier, full size spare and accessories hanging off the back of the vehicle, the back end will go down obviously, but most people do not realize the front will go up as well.

Hope that helps you out!
