    Stock Xtreme or ZQ8 Coil Spring Height

    Just wondering if some has a set of these laying around they can measure the height of them out of a truck sitting on the bench. I want to see if these will work for replacements for my aftermarket drop coil springs that I have in right now without changing my height much. Overall height of the front coils would be awesome. PM me or something

    I just bought a set off of eBay. Not sure if they will work but at least I can try them and see. If not you will see them for sale soon :D

    Unsprung height doesn't determine drop, spring rate also has a huge impact on the overall drop.

    Just keep in mind the zq8/xtreme coil is a 1.5" drop over a stock s10 coil.

    Yeah but I am already sitting between a 3-5 to a 4-6 drop right now. I want to keep around the same drop in the front with 2 inch drop spindles
