I am considering Lethal’s also. After seeing Unbrokens !7” measurements i just went out in garage and measured my H&R’s. I got exactly 18” all around. What’s up with that? I get the rear on his with the added weight. Not the front. By the way my tank is full.

Are these lethals really lower than H&Rs? seems like h&rs rebranded or maybe they cut half a coil and called them lethals lol

There seems to be some variation between all of them but Lethal for sure had their own parts made. No idea why my H&R’s measure 17” up front….mine are from the very first run of H&R’s so maybe they adjusted things over time?

I think you’re on to something as our 20 with H&R I believe was a bit lower than the 22.

2020 vs 2022. Lol
Yea how many minor tweaks from 20 to 22 did they make to suspension we dont even know about. lol maybe none maybe parts supply made things change? Not sure but in another week or so I will measure them over.
I will get a level out so I dont have to worry about the wheel being not flush with fender.

I'm working with @leathal performance right now to figure out what is going on with the rear height.

coil variation is definitely a thing. just to throw everyone off even more, on my 2020, my first-run Steedas are 17" front, 17.75" rear. so the spring with supposedly the least amount of drop has settled quite a bit over the last 3 years.

Lethal springs just came. Will add more measurements in a day or so. Just to confuse the issue some more. Lol. 1C2B4F4B-1964-4BA3-A369-746C4AC98461.jpeg

Well I finished the H&R to the Lethals and went for about a 5 mile ride.
the Fronts are exactly 17 inch’s and rear’s are exactly 18 inch’s with an almost empty fuel tank. Ride is noticeably smoother especially in the ass end. absolutely no coil binding in rear springs. Really happy so far!

Looks good I wish the stock wheels were wider in the back they need more meat,lol
I do see a rake in the picture I am looking out window at mine and the wheel well gaps from front to back are dead even on mine. Maybe your will settle flat also? one thing for sure there is def a variance in these springs

There really is a variance in spring height. I'm waiting for some replacement rear springs now from Lethal.
