Hello.
I have 95' SWB Classic. I bought it few months back as addition to '87 RR. It rides hard. I am thinking going medium springs and shocks. It has OME HD and OME shocks.
The question is: how much of the 2in lift will I loose if any. I like the way it looks now. I removed the sway bars and it improved some of the mostly pavement ride. Right now the distance from the center wheel to the bottom of the fender is 19 1/4 front and 20 1/4 rear. It has 245/75/16 tires and ARB bumper.
I did search the forum, but did not find a solid answer.
Thank you for reply.

158 visitors and nobody went from HD springs to Medium...hmm? I will probably go the Terrafirma Medium route on sale now at Atlantic British, but it is like a blind date. It would have been nice to have some actual info.

I went from OME HDs to Terrafirma light duties. I lost less than an inch. My 245/75s fit just fine. And 600lbs of dogs and gear doesn't make it sag.

Thank you very much for reply!!! How did the ride changed? I love the ride of my '87 with RR soft springs.I don't know if I am brave enough to go "Light" springs on this one.

The ride is much smoother now that I'm actually using my springs and not sitting on stiff springs that will never flex cause I don't have enough weight.

I learned the hard way...if you're not loading your vehicle down with tons of gear, etc. HD springs aren't needed.

A normally loaded vehicle (people and small amount gear) should be fine on standard/light springs.

The terras have 2" of lift no matter what level you get.
