Default Opinions on coils...?

Just wondering everyone's opinions on the coils they run? What's optimum height and what's the views on single rate as opposed to dual rate or progressive rate coils?!?! And finally are the coils the same throughout the jk range from 2007 to 2013 (current) as in fitment??

Thanks
Dev.

Flexy coils they are progressive rate and have a very good warranty. I find them terrific on and ofroad. I have a2dr petrol and front and rear bars and winch and they have not sagged.
They have a great review from everyone not like synergy that has bad reviews for sagging on a regular basis just google and you can see what I am talking about
I had teraflex coils on previous and was not impressed

Not sure if all JK's have the same springs from the factory (I know they don't in the US but I'm not sure for Australia).

My OE springs were sagging after a year, at least 1" down in the front (common for the CRD) and they must have been close to the bump stops in the rear when loaded up with camping gear. Swapped them for Suspension Stuff progressive flexy coils and couldn't be happier. Got about 2.5" of lift. Had them in for about 18 months now and they haven't sagged at all. Supple ride when when empty, doesn't drop much at all when loaded and flex's well.

I've had OME in for over 5 years and 130,000k and have had no problems.

Yep, the last 2 digits on the OEM springs are the height. Can't remember the number off the top of my head, but a quick google will get you the answer.

As for recommendations - I had stock then upgraded to the Mopar (Lovells) coils - waaay to stiff for a 2 door petrol, then some 3in Rubicon Express, better, but too high and still to stiff, now the Suspension Stuff Flexy coils at 2.5in. Nice ride, available in the height you want based on the load you have (yes, they ask what you have in your particular vehicle and supply springs to suit) and have a 5 year (?) warranty against sagging.

Mine are about 30,000km and 12 months old and exactly the same height they started.

I think you might have the height thing wrong, After you told me that I went and put all 3 sets side by side and unless they are a few mm apart. They are all the same size.
