    Looks like I'll be installing the OME 2.5" heavy setup next weekend.

    Just curious, should I expect the height and ride of the springs to change over the first few weeks?
    Do they "break in?"

    Seems reasonable that they would.

    Four weeks now and mine are still the same, I just measured it yesterday because I was curious about this as well.

    Street driving will not do much for changing ride and ride hieght. As you wheel them though they will change. My 80 dropped a little but softened up quite a bit. My trck had 3" springs with no bumpers or winch. The extra wieght makes a big difference.
