    Probably a too long shock, or a too short spring.

    Your springs are too heavy. Even in the pic those Dobinsons look like they have a large diameter wire. You'd hardly be compressing them with the weight of the vehicle

    That makes better sense, if it was bought as a kit. Get the springs and shocks part numbers and contact superior engineering. Maybe they supplied a wrong product.

    The 2" lift that was in my RB30 Patrol was meant for a TB42 which is way heavier, and was almost like a 2 1/2" -3" lift.

    It's more likely a spring selection issue, as with a vast, vast majority of spring purchases.

    This has turned in to a nightmare I asked for a quote from superior for a legal 3 inch lift to get certified, the spring numbers match up with the paper work, I have contacted superior and they said that now the shocks are to long that I have to sell them and buy shorter ones from them what a scam, they apparently have changed there minds since selling the kit, they want me to go from a 5 inch shock to a 3 inch shock to keep the spring compressed.

    I will double check again but they sent me a constant rate spring of 50 kg to 100 kg and I have a steel winch bar with a winch on it I have not gotten around to putting the spoties on yet, the first time I got my front springs from superior they were for a Landcruiser not even the right brand.

    You need to measure the wire diameter and the free height of the spring and cross reference that with the info on the website to see what you've been given
