I would put the bags back in so you can use as necessary. I still have my "stock height" bags in my 2.5" OME lift and the work just as well.Been in contact with a few vendors and Dobinson actually said their Flexi coils aren't that good for heavy weight and were designed for long travel.
They suggested the Linear coils, but also asked to measure my current rear coils (860) compressed on a level surface to see what would work best for me.
Just measured about ~11.5" from perch to perch
FWIW, there's about 1/4" of rubber donut insulation on top of each spring
I must say, the coating on these things ain't worth a $hite (pure rust)
They looked so shiny going in lol
Hmm, now that I notice, I had to remove the inner bumpstops to install the bags
Would I be ok without them and just outer bump stop extensions? (don't plan on replacing the bags unless absolutely necessary)
