    I'm running the supplied/standard springs front and rear, seen HERE.

    The measurements that I posted above is with 2.5" of threads above the coil nut. In my experience you will need at least 1.75" of threads just to achieve zero preload, possibly 2.0" or more once the springs break in. If I was to drop the height 1.0" by adjusting the coil nut alone, then I would not be at zero preload.

    Unless you're armored and/or loaded up and running pretty heavy, you may find that you're going to need lower spring rates front and rear to sit an inch lower than I am now.

    Thanks and I'll run them the same as what you have, it will work fine.
    Question, are your rear passenger side coils adjusted for the gas tank or are the springs side specific, pertaining to rear passenger side droop like on the JK?

    The springs are not side specific. I have all four corners adjusted the same.

    Do you have droop at the gas tank side?
    I ask because on my JK I had to adjust the rear to compensate.
    Can you post a pic?

    Next time I fill up, I'll try to remember to snap a picture. The gas stations have the only level ground around here.

    I'm gonna pull the trigger on the Evo long arm kit w/ coilovers. Can't decide on if I should go with adjusters or not, any thoughts or opinions?

    Personally, I went without adjusters because I would be messing with them constantly. I have a firm grasp on my own insanity, and know that I would probably pull over on the side of the highway to fiddle with them. I would be unable to resist the urge. I would never get anywhere. That being said, I have no regrets choosing to go without compression adjustment.
