    Hi all,

    Tried to do a search, but couldn't find anything. Just got some cheap, freshly rebuilt DirtLogic 2.5" coilovers on Craigslist and will be putting on Tim's Elite Off-Road plate bumper as soon as it gets back from the powder coater.

    Just wondering how much preload (in inches) I need for 2.5 inches of lift with that burly bumper?

    Thanks much,
    Nic

    For future reference, cranked them about 3/4" from collar to top of threads. This netted me about 3" of lift with an Elite Off-Road front bumper.
