9.5"!! 8>0
Lower it and put on Limit straps. No need to articulate past the point wight comes off your spring.

Re: Coil Spring Fall Out

9.5" damn! That is a hell of a lot of lift for 35's. I am running 37" Krawlers with 5.5" of lift. Limiting straps is your best bet to keep the springs from falling out. In reality once your coil starts falling out of the bucket, you have limited down pressure on the drooping tire, and no real traction. Even though it looks cool, it is really not "usable flex".

Re: Coil Spring Fall Out

Need pics!

Can guarantee the lift wasn't done the right way. Come back down from the nosebleeds, lot of problems will go away

Re: Coil Spring Fall Out

Agree on limit straps, could also add a bolt down coil retainer as well. I wouldn't be too worried if the coil unseats from the top as long as it's secured at the bottom.

Re: Coil Spring Fall Out

On my zj i extended the top where the stock bump stop was.. Limiting straps def a good idea, but the longer post will make the coil not fall out at least. This was especially needed in the rear, but our xjs are leaf sprung so not an issue

Re: Coil Spring Fall Out

Isnt there spring retainers on the axle spring perch already?
Might just be a zj thing. They arent as good as aftermarket by any stretch, just a bolted on tab

There should be on the spring perch but both of mine took a hike and I do not know when and where.

Yea! Limit straps is your friend.

Re: Coil Spring Fall Out

Retainers only go so far but if it's properly bump-stopped and shocked it can't happen!
