So at full droop, front wheel hanging in the air, with Gen2 shock AND Spring, my upper control arm ALMOST touched the spring. And I mean 1 or 2mms away. I've gotten the front end off the ground and they don't BANG together or anything, but they are extremely close, much closer than if you were to use the gen1 spring on the Gen2 shock. If you were to use your truck for rock crawling, jumping, extreme off reading, I'd advise at the very least limiting straps, but if you really ride her hard (like a weekend toy not a daily), the Mira Gen2 shock conversion I think is the best route. However there is the option of replacing coil buckets as well, however I'm not crazy about that personally.I have toyed with this Idea for a while.
The reason for me Is there different in length. I don't know how that effects down travel? (Fronts) will there be possible binding? Do they need to be limited with a binder? (If you off-road) Not that any of this is negative just questions that it is tough to get answers too. There is not a good Clear"'how to" on the subject.
I believe @pat247 has had his gen2 on his gen1 running gen1 springs and hat for a while.
So possibly you could tell us a clear "How to" I might be first set sold here.
The rears seem to be Pretty straight forward. "How to"
