Compressed spring height

Can someone tell me what a +2" spring should measure when it's installed? I have the medium duty set up and I am trying to figure out if I need to move up to HD with all the added weight of the truck. It seems to be sitting lower than it should. I have the 2" lift and 287/75/16 BFG mud tires at the wheel arch it is 35". Does this sound right? I don't want to install the HD springs and then find out I went too far. Thanks for any help

I went through this on my truck. From Dennis White on the DefenderSource archives:

http://www.defendersource.com/faq/Su...SusSpring.html

"Stock loaded spring height on a new 97SW is:
10-1/2" front,
12" rear
DW"

Based on my measurements, I felt this was accurate.
