    Don't think you can fit an 18" with 4wd second gens.
    The second gens need the tapered spring plates to clear axles.

    It's no simple feat to fit 18's on first gens too.
    You have to line up the springs and spring plate slots just perfectly so the brake banjo bolt goes in between the slot at full lock...otherwise...the banjo bolt starts to get deformed...and quick. Don't ask why I know....

    I have 10" coilovers with dual rate hardware and a 14" 600 lb. primary spring and 6" 500 lb. tender spring, but it sags up front unless I preload it a bunch. Should a 650 lb. primary spring and 600 lb. tender spring solve problem? The only issue is that they make a 14" 650 lb. primary spring, but no one to my knowledge makes a 6" 600 lb. tender spring.
