But, when the strut is bare and dissasembled, the shaft is by default fully extended. Even if you take a longer coil and compress it to fit on the strut before installing your strut mount, once you remove your coil compressors the whole coil is still limited in extension by the length of the strut shaft and held in place by the mount.

Stiffer coils might not compress as much once the vehicle is on the ground (therefore 'lifting' the vehicle) but is 1.5'' lift really possible? I'm more curious than anything.



You could measure the length of the strut shaft out of the vehicle, measure the length of the shaft with the strut and coil installed on the vehicle on the ground, and subtract. That number is how much you could potentially lift it (though I wouldn't max it out). This is assuming the Coilover mounts perfectly straight too

Anyone else try these? Is the ride control any better over rough pavement vs the stock?

Mikejobo looks nice... any pics of how much the tire sticks out from the fender... I'm looking at doing a -6 offset for a wider stance
