@TRAIL TAILOR so how is it to drive? Is it comparable to an 80 on road?
IMO its better than an 80. My wife has a bone stock 97 3X and she wanted to know why if these conversions have the same suspension as her 80................. why hers doesn't ride as nice...

COG, stance, WB, top weight.... all adds up for a win for the conversion.

Man, @TRAIL TAILOR those 62’s sit sooo nice and level.
Roughly, how much higher is the end results, compared to Old Man Emu leafs?
These are a 1:1 front ratio and a 1:1.25 rear ratio. This is a 3" Tough Dog lift and it came out at 3.38" up front and 3.75" in the rear. coils will settle approx .25-.38" during break in. This one has a little rear height adjustment as the customer will keep approx. 500# in the rear so we "preloaded" the rear suspension with a stronger spring rate coil to handle the constant weight and give it a proper stance when loaded, but still look good unloaded. So the rear is slightly higher in this pic than it normally would be. This will not have a stinkbug stance when finished per the intended design.

The 2" TD coils yield a 2.5" front and 2.8" rear on initial measures on the previous front and rear coil conversion.
