Someone needs these! that is a great deal on the springs and they look new, IMHO. I am running the progressives on the 94 with 33s and it is a nice ride! good luck with the sale.

Thanks Clay. I had these linears on my D1 for a brief period. Obtained some progressives in a parts truck
I swapped them out and honestly can't tell any difference. Especially not to justify swapping front springs again. Just trying to clear out my ever growing pile of rover shit.

How would these fit on a ROW D90, 300tdi & 12k winch? Would this be around 2.5" or slightly less lift? And are these progressive?

If so...I will be liberating them from you. Please advise.

Thanks
Sean

They will handle a bumper and 12k winch just fine and still sit around 3" give or take. My truck sits level with an RTE slimline full brush guard bumper, no winch. Fronts are linear. That being said I had them on my D1 for a short time and swapped them with progressives I had to see if I could tell a difference. I cant tell any difference whatsoever. Brett (fishEH) even did flex comparisons with linear vs progressive. No difference there either.

Looks like it will all MORE lift to my D90... I don't want it above 2.5 of lift so I am backing out.

If you dredge up some nice used [inexpensive] HD D90 springs in your part vault, - please let me know.

Thanks,
Sean
