Has anyone used this new spring yet. I am thinking of changing from the RE 6" spring and going with this sky jacker 10", looking for input. Thanks.

Correct me if I am wrong, but SJ uses a 9" spring and 1" body lift to achieve the 10"s of lift.

I have no experience with the SJ coils, sorry.

I'm running the 9" coil. At the time I bought these, last May, a Skyjacker 10" lift consisted of the 9" coil with a 1" body lift. I believe SJ is now making a 10" coil. That's how it looks on the site.

My 9" coils were the same length as the 8" ones I replaced. Hence stiffer than the 8s. I have to wonder about the 10s. Same length as the 9s and 8s, but stiffer still? Maybe not ideal.

You're probably better off sticking with the RE coils. Skyjacker likes to exagerate lift heights unless they've changed their practices.

I am making my control arm longer and changing the RE crossmember to have the upper arms go to the top of the rear diff. I want to run 42's the 40's are just not cutting it anymore:flipoff2:

how do you do it?

When I had the MJ, I ran 4.5" ZJ coils up front and the coil would do nasty things on compression. I don't see how you guys run 8"+ coils?? On the other hand, my bud is running 42's with the stock coils front and rear. He just moved the frame mounts down the the axle mounts up. Might be something to think about.

it doesn't do that funny of things when it is compressed. Look
Mine would compress till most of the coil were touching each other, and would be bowed in about 3 different directions. But hey, if it works for you all the better!
