Question Suspension setting advice needed (britpart springs)

Hi,

I'm planning to start messing my suspension this month, but I need advice about something.
I'm going to use Britpart yellow springs, these are availables in standard height, + 25 mm
lift and + 40 mm lift.

Actually my suspension is stock, 300 Tdi engine. Stock front bumper was removed and I have
now a HD 6 mm thick Bearmach bumper, a Warn 8000 will be installed as soon as my wallet let me.
My use is 70 % on road and 30 % off road, nothing really heavy in the back tube most of the time.

I'd to get a 1" lift, so I was thinking about a + 25 mm pair in the back and a + 40 mm in the front
because of the extra weight.

Any advice will be welcome...

Probably pretty good. The 300 TDi weighs about 250LB more than the V8, I think. It's been a while since I did the math.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

Thanks Buck
I know that there is probably a way to calculate exactly, but sometimes
feedbacks and experiences are better. I'm still waiting for a quote from
AB, but I know that Britpart sell those springs at a competitive price in UK.
