My saggy rear end

On the Jeep that is. I am running the TF 2.5" coils all around on my 2dr. With the added weight of the 37" spare and tire carrier bumper the rear end sags. Unfortunately there is no lighter rear bumper or tire to run to remedy this. The front isn't weighted down so much because I run a "minimalist" type bumper and a winch with synthetic rope. Whole front end setup probably weighs less than 100lbs.

Anyone else running into this problem? Are you running an extra spacer in the rear? I figured that is what I'm going to do either 3/4" or 1". Or is there a better spring say OME or RK, or some TF 3.5" (thats almost exactly what I got in lift in the front with the TF 2.5s)?

My sig is HUGE in Japan

I poly has some killer spring rates, RK has the new 2.5" springs now.. 1" spacer's from terra flex will correct the problem...but I'd call RK first and ask this question. I'll probably have the same problem but I'm installing 3.5" RK coils in the rear and putting a 40" out back..

Current project jeep 08' wrangler 2dr
Past jeep:
- 07' Rubicon 4 dr, RAMICON- 3.5" ROCK KRAWLER Coil-Over lift
- 5.38 gears- Gusseted/Trussed/inner sleeved
- 40" Pro Comp X-Terrain

Same issue with my TF 2.5" coils. I added a TF 1" spacer at the rear and its all good to go.

You could run OME HD rear springs.
