The build of my flag ship Black Pearl

I would definitely get heavier springs for that setup. Does it sit any higher without the trailer?
About 3/4- 1 inch higher. It has a really heavy ass. I’m at 2 1/4” preload to get it just shy of 4” of lift. I was going to check if the front and rear springs were interchangeable. My rear is (top to bottom) 200/250 combo and the front is 250/250. If I can I’ll put the 200 from the back into the front and so on. If not the springs don’t cost to much.

If I remember they are about $150 per spring. The fronts are different lengths I believe.

Was just looking at them. They’re about 100 each. Now to determine if 250 or 300 is best for my weight.
Makes sense they are different as the coilovers themselves are different lengths.

This is after disconnecting the trailer. They aren’t recovering well. Going to move the transfer rings down more. It was bottoming out a few times.

On another note. The Jeep drove great! No shimmies or vibrations. Definitely going to need to regear. But can do 70 easy on flat, struggles at 45 up hill. It also was less darty then I thought it would be with about 3* caster.
