So I’m looking to go to Deavers or Ikons in the rear. I want to mainting ride quality. Thinking of going to a +2.
I’ve lost clearance in the front. Any recommendations from n how to get lift on the front without losing ride quality. I think I’ve lost 1-2” up front.
Lol you lost clearance in the front because you added a ton of weight: three light bars, a steel bumper, a heavy winch, and a FMIC. The front coilovers can’t handle that.
For the front, I wouldn’t screw with Eibachs or Geisers springs. Spend the money and get the Fox Factory Series 3.0 Live Valves. Fox designs those shocks right alongside the OEM shocks on the Raptor except it has a better coilover spring to handle the weight of your bumper/gear, better cooling with the bypass reservoir, and you can adjust the dampening of the shock through a knob. Given COVID, these are tough to find in stock. https://svcoffroad.com/collections/...3-0-live-valve-internal-bypass-piggyback-pair
You know how much weight you are running in the rear? At the minimum I would do +3 HD Deavers, but probably recommend the +4 HD Deavers given your weight. This will change the ride slightly, but in a good way: it will stabilize the rear from kicking and sagging. Personally, I am going to run ICON leaf springs. You can’t go wrong with either despite what you may read on the forum.
I had the same bumper as you, but decided to sell it. I couldn’t justify the extra weight of the winch with everything else. I would love to run a winch for recovery, but probably would only use it once a year (if that). Feel free to pm if you want to talk/text on the phone. My V2 GFC will be ready in a couple of weeks. So I am getting all my stuff prepared
