They are not made for the Wolverine, Thats why the stickers are ripped off the boxes.
Yep. All jbs makes is and adapter to fit standard springs. If you look on Summit racing there are spring adapters that may work. The trick is knowing what spring rate is needed.

These are the springs that Walker Evans Racing uses on their shocks,

front -https://www.summitracing.com/parts/eib-14002500250
rear - https://www.summitracing.com/parts/eib-14002500225s

Eibach 1400.250.0250S 14" x 2.5" I.D. Coil-Over Spring
Eibach 1400.250.0225S 14" x 2.5" I.D. Coil Over Spring

Hopefully someone with the JBS that hasn't install them can measure the spring length

Awesome DILLIGAF
I figured the numbers would be printed on the springs. <<<<<
Notice the Coilover Spring Rate (lbs/in)
Rear 500 lbs./in
Front 225 lbs./in.
Gives some idea to spring rate.

Just standard Eibach, I figure either 225 or 250s since it take no effort to crank them down for install.

Just a Standard adapter as well, You literally can built this kit with Summit Racing 14" springs ( Made by Eibach BTW lol... ) for less than half what JBS charges.

Id run that 1/2 spacer up front and a 1" in the rear so you dont have to crank down on your preload.

14" coilovers up front 16" coilovers for the rear. This would eliminate the need for that stupid spacer. and all you would need is the adapter.

Will be playing around with this stuff during the winter. At 50$ a spring from Summit its a cheap mod to try out.

So what spring rate for the front and rear? I'd rather not run the stupid spacer either. 14" front and 16" rear with just the adapter. JBS can pound sand now lol. Nice work getting those measurements.

Ill do like Walker Evans, 225 up from 250 in the rear and go from there.

Just taking off my preload made my ride today so much better, no more big thump when my rear end lands back on the ground. The Perfex lift might of also helped with that since the shock is more straight up and down as well.

So longer spring will make it that much better in the back.

So Ill have a set of 14" Eibach spring to send to someone for up front once I get the 16's

Sorry for the junior question but what is wrong with the stock springs? Springs hold the machine up and shocks do the rest of the work right? Unless the sag isn’t right for your weight.

They wear out quickly and the spring rates leave a lot of room for improvement.

Just reading this thread again. What part #s are needed to replace the stock KYB springs on an X2? I know JBS sell a kit, but...
