I'm looking to get a ARB bumper and only have a Puck lift. I want to get OME What springs work best? Front and rear.
x2 Metal Tech will confirm this for you, and I think others are moving that way too. The "heavies" are really only if you plan to put an almost ridiculous amount of weight on your rig.I haven't talked to ARB about this in some time, but fairly early on they began dis-recommending 886s even with the ARB due to issues (or at least perceived liability) with premature CV wear. I also seem to recall they went so far as to start referring to 885s as "heavy". Of course one could always get 886s directly.
So what your saying is that I have a ridiculous amount of weight on my rig? Anyway, I would install the 883's If you are just planning on a lift, The 884's if you are just adding a bumper, the 885's if you are adding a bumper and winch, and the 886's if you are like me and have a heavy bumper and winch, full skids, dual group 31 batteries, and a SC. Total added weight just in the front of my rig is about 400lbs to be able to run the 886's. If you are too stiff on the front you will wear your CV's quickly and if you are too stiff on the rear it will affect your ABS when going over small bumps.x2 Metal Tech will confirm this for you, and I think others are moving that way too.

hehe, it works for you Brian. If you have that much weight, it's actually pretty nice there is a spring out there than can handle it.So what your saying is that I have a ridiculous amount of weight on my rig?
Let me know when, I'll help if I can. Having a 2nd person makes positioning the bumper (especially one that heavy) a lot easier. It's pretty straight forward otherwise.Thanks for all the input guys, I'm getting this done at Les swab. After I install the ARB.
I could use some help getting that installed after I pick it up.
Thanks again guys.
Sounds about right to me! :cheers:So I've went with the warn bumper and M8000 winch, want to keep the original plane of vehicle and I'm not interested in lifting her up. I do some moderate wheeling at times (no rock crawling/mostly mud and snow), but most of my driving is over pavement and I use it as my daily transportation. I've ordered the 884 = front "light" spring and the
895E = rear "medium" spring 1.5inch. Did I get the formula correct?
