Calmini lift

Getting ready to tell mom and dad what i want for christmas. I think ive finally got them talked into paying for half of my lift. Can anybody tell me how the calmini 3" lift does. Mainly, does it stay at the out of bos height or will it eventually sag. I was looking at the OME but ive heard that they had a tendency to start sagging over time. Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks and happy thanksgiving
Will

Re: Calmini lift

I've had the OME 2.5" lift springs for over 4 years. I also put on 1.5" longer shackles and poly bushings at the same time. No sag and I wheel fairly hard. I just went out and measured. I really like the ride, much softer and more flexible. If this is also a road rig you will really like the improvement on the road.

Re: Calmini lift

These wasting about spring sag recently. Fact is all springs will sag ove time. Some faster that others and is correlated with the softness of the springs.

I do know that Calmini springs start off higher than the 3" inches and settle out to about 3". Mine ride much better now that they are broke in.

Re: Calmini lift

Tim, Did you say broke??? That is a dirty word in my book, and am not aloud to use it around the wife when talking about the Zooki. Still up in the air though as to what springs to get myself. Heard that OME are pretty good as well as the Calmini springs. Good luck in your choice there Zukinut. Keep us posted as to which way you lean.

Turn it till it breaks, then back off 1/4 turn

Re: Calmini lift

Relaxed. Now that is a word I can use. "Honey, my Transmission just relaxed all over the driveway, can I get a new one"? Just joking, Besides, where would we be today if we could not laugh a little.

Turn it till it breaks, then back off 1/4 turn

Re: Calmini lift

I like that, the splines in my front driveshaft "relaxed" this weekend to the point that it flopped around so much it took out the seals, c-clip, and front bearing of my T-Case. NOW that's really relaxed!

Re: Calmini lift

Hey Yankee Tim or anyone really,You said that the 3"are actually a little higher at first until it settles,what about the 1.5"lift?Do they come arched more also and then settle to size?And does a lift this small sag faster since theres not as much arc?Thanks
