Hey everyone! I have a set of the 4inch pluch ride coils from evomfg. For weight I have the orfab stinger bumper with a warn Vr10 winch and or fab rear standard bumper. I went ahead and ordered 1inch front coil spacers because of the weight up front. What I'm wondering is, do I need to add the spacers to the front coils or will my jk be level without them?. I hate the rake that's in it now on the rc coils. I don't carry or load my jk with weighted items so rear sag won't be an issue. Any help would be great! If anyone has pics of their 4 Dr jk running evo coils, post pic, I would like to see how your Jeep is sitting

Only way to know for sure, since every jeep is different is to pop the springs in and see. If it's level, good to go. If not, pull the front springs and put the spacer in. Super easy

RC coils sag like a 75 year old set of titties(man or women, no gender bias), your EVO's should be much better.

Are you running stock control arms and drive shafts? most of the time a 4in lift needs more then just the coils...?

The 4 inch rc coils when I added bumpers and a winch it sagged a good 1.5 inches in the front and 1inch in the rear they ride like sh!++ on and off road but flexes nicely I'd recommend the kit to Anyone that plans to have it all swapped out for better quality within the first 2 years. That's my route.

Still running stock drive lines and control arms. Swaybar stays connected offroad and the stock ds and ca's are getting swapped out soon.

Lift kits tend to generate more lift than advertised but they do it on both ends. Some don't even eliminate all of the rake and it's rare for them to create negative rake unless your light in the front and have a 110 lb spare + tire carrier. The only way to provide for a plush ride on a coil is to have a lower initial spring rate. This will lead to sag.

Weight is going to make any coil compress. You might as well add the spacer while you have anything disassembled.
