    Rear Coil Correction Wedges....Do I need Retainers?

    Installed my correction wedges last week when I put the Evo 3" springs in. Im a little concerned about unseating a coil now. I thought about using a hose clamp through the bottom or maybe even buying a retainer kit. What do you guys think? Not much nub sticking through those wedges to keep the spring at bay.

    If you have the proper length shocks I wouldn’t worry about unseating a coil. The shocks will limit down travel

    As mentioned, so long as you are running shocks of the correct length, unseating a coil will NOT be a concern.

    Well I ordered the Rancho 9000 shocks recommended in the Evo 3" kit on Northridge. My lift is a frankenstien with Evo 3" coils, Core 4x4 front LCA and rear UCA, RK sway bar links F/R, stock track bars in Synergy front mount and Artec rear mount.

    Hopefully their recommendation on shocks is correct.

    Check it out at full droop to see how the springs are seated.

    I'm running a similar setup without issue - RS99930 with EVO rockstars. You could run RS99932s without rockstars. You didn't say what your vendor sold you, but if it makes you feel good, go buy the retainers.

    if you unseat your springs then you will run into problems on top anyways, so set it up correctly and you don't need them.

    I have the 330 shocks in the rear with factory perches as that is what Northride / Evo package recommended back there.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
