Wanting to lift Comanche 3” or so......

Rubicon Express sells a 3.5” coil but it’s spring rate seems really high.

By comparison the 3.5” coil has a 240lb/inch rating whereas the 4.5” has 164lbs/inch rating.

Has anyone used this spring or am I missing something when I see guys referring to the 3.5 RE coil?

TIA

164lbs/inch seems wicked light. The early bronco superflex I ran were 200 I think, and those were pretty small trucks

I’m leaning toward the least lbs/inch. The more flex the better.

240 is very high.
