    Same height. They just firm up the spring. No additional height over stock.

    I just installed the Hellwig 550 helpers last weekend. I did not measure but I could swear it raised the back end an inch maybe. I think it may depend on how much you torque down the rear u-bolts and how much your old springs are sagging. Any way you look at it, if it does lift it's not much. Don't expect it to be like putting a lift mod in.

    Hello BTO,

    How tight did you set the ubolts in order to notice a lift? Also, was the left clamp an issue or did you clamp the 550 over the clamps? Also. do they make noise? I am looking at the 550 or the ez 990's so you input would truly help me.

    Thanks:D
