To the OP. Thanks for posting all this. Let us know your overall impression of the swap compared with oem, stock 450s, reworked to your specs, etc.
To xxcharger, thanks for your input too. If you don't already have your own thread maybe you should, all this information is gold. I'd like to see more activity on this board overall?.

|xxcharger||Yes, I swapped the springs. Seems to ride well too. But now I have two concerns; will the added height raise the COG and make climbing hills more dangerous, and will my ball joints be damaged from being maxed out.|

|Thaistick||Did you figure this out xxcharger?|

|xxcharger||I have the same problem, I'm working on my xmx shocks and there's no travel. If I stand on the front bumper I'm on the bump stop. So if I swap the springs they work well and won't bottom out?|

Finally got everything finished up last night. Pre-load has 7 threads on it. All clickers are halfway at 11 right now.

|Wroughndt||Yepper, much stiffer. Don't worry too much about the travel either. Just sitting there it doesn't look like much but once you take it off of the first jump you will see that there is lots of travel.|

|5W0P3||I got one swapped, it seemed to help and at least be rideable now. It would not have been with the DS spring. Those XX springs are A LOT stiffer than the DS springs. I could hand compress the DS ones but had to get ratchet straps to compress the XX one.|

|Wroughndt||Swap the springs and put some preload on them, that should fix your issue.|

|5W0P3||Yours looks like 4" of travel. Mine has maybe 1.5" of travel.|

Here is mine from the other thread:
I would say, put the factory springs on them, set them at 4 visible threads of preload and see where that gets you. I know that I thought I didn't have any travel left until I had my wife measure the sag and overall travel to set ride height.
Just look at the angle of the A-arms between yours and mine.
