So, I'm installing a new rear bumper with tire carrier and "extras"-jerry cans and ammo cans. The weight of the bumper with no tire or fuel in the cans is around 160 lbs. I've dry fitted it and rode around with it on and noticed quite a difference in sag and driveability. I'm moving piece by piece into a new lift and I've bought some Rock Krawler front suspension pieces.
My question is that, with almost 300 lbs on the rear of my rig, are there any springs that are made out of thicker gauge wire to sag less under load? I want to pick up 3 1/2" on the lift, but don't want to buy springs that are for more height so the weight will "bring it down" to my desired height.
Just when they think they have all the answers, I go and change the question.
