the 2.0 saw's have a 675lb coil as to the 2.5's saw's and 'hoes 650lb coil. For that reason they're preferred for winch support.

I've had my 2.0/675s for a couple years now...no sagging and I have at least 300# of armor on the nose. I set them for about 2.5" of lift and get full flex to the bumpstops.

Really?? First I've heard of this....I just keep cranking up my preload..yea they sag.

Yup, they are guranteed to never sag.. heres a paste from the post by "DR RYAN" linked below..



Yup, if they sag just send the coilovers in and we will check them out and replace them if there is a problem.

Also we charge $40-60 per shock for a standard rebuild on our coilovers.

Donahoes. They are guranteed to never sag. SaW's will work good, but eventually sag. They are also more expencive, but as an owner.. the hoes kick ass.
SAW's are guaranteed to never sag too. I had 2.0's but after ARB and winch I had coil bind with the amount of lift I wanted (around 2.5") so I went to the 2.5" SAW and 700lb springs. That spring option is not available with the 2.0's. Now I have the amount of lift I want, no coil bind all the way to the bumpstops, and the on/off road ride is great. :2cents:
