Hi, I have a 2000 LX470, AHC was replaced almost immediately (Lexus estimated 3600 in parts to repair, luckily I had a $3000 repair credit). I had Slee remove my AHC and install the OME 1.5" medium lift kit. I have Dobinson IMS shocks on the rear and soon on the front. I also have BIOR sliders and a full set of BIOR skid plates. I don't have any drawers installed and typically there will be only myself and one of my sons on a hunting trip up some rough roads. So my question: Do you think my 865 springs will be too soft? I plan to leave them as is and try it out, but was wondering what the folks here thought

Thanks,

Chuck

I run the Slee rear and previously had the 865’s. Never drove it with the 865’s but after bumper install there was some rear squat. I’m running the medium Slinky Springs from endless horizon outfitters and they are phenomenal in my opinion. HOWEVER my kids (4) are getting bigger and I’m trying to source the heavnow. Rides beautifully without them in it and the 3rd installed plus winch recovery bag, air compressor and tools in back. Looks like zero rake but is actually .75”

I’ll be posting the slinky Springs once I source the heavies.

863 may not be too stiff considering the constant weight with BIOR skids, and sliders are prob +300 lbs combined + whatever else gets packed in the truck- that's at the lower end of 863 capability but that saves some capacity to tow a trailer, or add some load to the truck. The 863 has another inch of free height, slightly thicker coil, and spring rate is 14% greater than 865.
