King Coilovers

About 2 weeks ago installed kings front and back with TC UCA's from downsouthmotorsports. I would like the front to sit up a little higher to be level but dont want to lose ride quality. I have a 4x4 so what are my options? Anything would help

Maybe that'd work. Anyone else?

You would have to get longer springs if you don't want to preload them at all. Only option with a 4x4. Or a drop bracket lift

He is right. You can add more preload to the coilovers but you need to make sure your CV boot fins dont touch. If they do they will wear out very quickly. The ride will get a bit stiffer too as you crank them higher. Try it out cranked a bit and see how you like it.

You can go to a stiffer spring for more height but the shock wont work as well unless you have a heavy front bumper to justify the stiffer spring. Its a constant battle getting the height and ride dialed in. Mine still needs some work.

You can get longer springs with the same or lesser spring rate if you wanted

Try preloading them to give it another inch of ride height or where you want it, you can always bring them down if its too harsh.

you can also run a 750# spring vs the 650# spring you are most likely running now. I have 750's on mine and the collar is all the way up for that caddy ride.
