I have been sitting on this problem for a few months now. I have the 6 inch mx-6 lift that Pro Comp offers and i never messed with the factory settings. I am looking for a bit more height and it looks like i can crank the coil springs about another inch / inch and a half.
Problem 1. ---- after talking to both pro comp and 4 wheel part i was informed that in order to crank the Coilover i need to take it to an auto shop because its a total bitch to do it with any kind of wrench due to the pressure load on the spring and that im increasing the load.
Any other options? Any ideas on how i can do it myself? Id like to save the several hundred dollars id spend at 4wheelparts. I already went to Oreillys and their spring compressor doesn't fit on the Pro Comp fatty spring.
Problem 2. ---- The rear end will sag after making the change in the front. What is my next plan of attack? Do i go with a bigger block or add another add-a-leaf under or on-top of the pro comp add-a-leaf? or should i just do both? I want my rear end height anywhere from a 1/2 inch to close to an inch higher than the front.
I know u guys are gunna say call hawaii spring or Alcan or whoever else makes springs and put a leaf pack on her but unfortunately its not in my budget and building the rear end is just too easy right now.
here is a most recent pic of my baby.
mahalos for taking the time to hear me out
