Spring lift

If my front coil springs measures 12 inches in height, while in the vehicle, how much above stock height does that work out to? Looks like maybe a 2" lift to me?

Show us a side profile pic of the truck. Probably easiest way to tell. Or measure fender flare to ground. Can compare to mine which is 2 inch lift.

Measure from center of wheel cap(or the hub cap) to fender flare for easy comparison

May be different on a NAS vs ROW but what I used to determine the lift I had (or sag in the case of my front springs) is this:http://forums.lr4x4.com/index.php?sh...12#entry437086

The best way to measure your lift is to measure your spring heights with the
vehicle parked on level ground,measure from top to bottom of the rear of the
front spring,and the same for the rear spring,with quality springs you will
find that the drivers side is always slightly taller

STD 90/110 FRONT SPRING measures 260mm +/- 5 mm
The REAR SPRING should be around 300 mm +/- 10mm

Yes. Stock is around 10" front and 12" rear for a Defender.
