My new front sprins +2" and a Rear Panhard Relocation Bracket! Next saturday i will mount the springs and put the standard front springs in the rear because they are about 55mm more longer than the standard rear psrings.

You don't need the springs compressing tool if you remove the lower bolt from each shock. Then it's easy to install the spring with the axle lowered. This of course requires that you jack up the Jimny and remove the tyres.

+3" Trail Master. Fox 8.0" R/R shocks. ORA HD winchbumper. Warn M8274 Ox-motor + Hellfire gears, Delta-Tek mainshaft and freespool, overvolted. 33/9.5 R16 Silverstone Extreme. 5.14:1 ratio SJ transferbox in RW cradle. OMP rollcage.

Conclusions...
The front and the rear is much softer, I should have to create or buy some Springs spacers with 10mm or 15mm tall to put on the back because I confirm the springs +2" (front) from jimnybits comes with about +3" and not 2" because the standard springs have about 340mm length and the srpings with +2" come with 415mm length +-

It's 5***** thumbsup

The parts left over... :evil: (...the rear standard springs and the home made springs spacers...)

I mount the rear rough country shock absorbers, but the shocks hitting in the springs, so I started to make some rear shocks repositioners/spacers that the center has shifted 5mm to the middle of the car to avoid the springs!!

when they are built and tuned I place photos and redo some measures of the sketch!! ;)
