    Just had a set of springs from JK fitted to my 91 SC. The front has come down nicely but the rear is still up in the air with the left side 25mm higher than the right.
    I haven't driven it more than 5 or 6 k's so I'm hoping it will settle down but the thing that concerns me is that the rear springs are nearly fully compressed in the middle of each coil.
    I'll put up a pic when/if it stops raining.
    Anyone fitted them to a ute before?

    Had thought about fitting to my 90 SC (91 Aust Compliance).

    Ute lighter in the rear end so they may settle but feel the rear will remain higher - changing the shocks may help fix.

    I have them on my 1989 Caravelle. Sits nice and even although it appears to be higher in the back but its not. I put all new Koni twin tube adjustable shocks on at the same time. Yes the springs do appear to be more compressed than the factory but the ride is good except when you hit a pot hole :(

    Mine settled heaps after a week or two, much happier with the look of it now. Load the back with cement bags etc, will make all the difference.? [maybe]
