Right but the 2.25 setting on the RPG a lot have said it's too stiff, so 1.75 with a pre-load and a .5 inch shim is just splitting the difference a half inch and taking some of the preload off. Is half an inch on top enough to cause any damage in the long run? I would think not for most people, and most that would have an issue would likely only be using this as a temporary solution to getting new front spring and shock assembly. I'd like to get one of the adjustable as an option, it might be temporary it might not. Who I would really like to hear from is someone that has gone from a 2.25 perch kit to either Eibach or Geiser springs. Which is better for ride quality?
