After all final checks I went for a drive
This setup may not be for everyone 
Super soft. 
Parts used 1" spring spacer (front drivers side)
4 rear Honda crv springs
SUP 011076
KYB RC5814
KILEN 54014
1 complete coil needs cutting off for rears 
I took it from bottom 
 

Shocks were from vit-mods +3"
Note I had to use my old Bush sleeves 
Ones in shocks are a little to long (could be cut down) 

 

 

   



Up Travel to bump stops 4.5" front rear 5" (leaving around 1" left on shock up travel) 
Down travel they go far enough for springs to fall out
Spring clamps been ordered 

I cannot say how much lift it gives as I didn't measure 
I would guess ~3"

When you say soft what are you talking, compliant off road but still drives ish on road or so soft it's oft road only? Still cool either way.

It feels a little floaty drives over speed bumps well 
Gives a lot of body roll on corners (no arb fitted)
Not had chance to try off road but should get good articulation (or fall over)
cost me less than 200 
Might save and get 4 adjustable shocks i'm happy with how soft the springs are

Have you done anything about castor correction? Looking to replace my trialled so need suspension set up, soft sounds brilliant for what I want. Did you cut spring down because it was too long?

I was already running +3" castor arms all round 
Yes chopped off coil to make it sit level 
Groundworker you may need to chop more off to suit your truck

All pretty academic really, can't buy a Jimmy for love nor money, missed one today, was on FB for 3 hrs before it sold. Bid on one on eBay, no mot, off road for 18months, needed back box and gear knob, had engine management light on, went for nearly £1200!!! My last two cost me £700 with full MOT.
