I had the 4" Calmini springs in my zuk but I was spring under. I didn't have too many problems with mine. After 2 years of complete baggin on the springs one pack started to flatten. But according to Calmini it is because I opened the C-clips on leaf packs. It makes sense.

These leafs were NOT stiff at all. The flexed great for a lift spring. I was VERY happy with the purchase. I could fit a 31" tire under without any rubbing and I never had to worry about a traction bar.

I have another set of Calmini 4" leaf springs forsale if interested.

I have some but havn't put in yet

Exact ones your asking about.
I'll let you know as soon as I try them out.
I ran OME Old Man Emus for the last 8 years but they
finally flattened out. Towing two quads on a trailer
to the Oregon sand dunes with all my camping
gear didn't do them any favors either - or my trany.
Rebuilt it twice. The OMEs get you about 2" lift
I think. I have two inch extended shackles too.
With 31" tires,
I think I was always getting a bit of wheel rubbing -
then it got worse as they flattened. I don't like
big lifts or spring overs, so I'm hoping these will
lift it about right. You'll need a dropped pitman too.
I found your some monroe-matic shock absorbers
that will work with the stock mounts too. I can
look for the part numbers if you want. These are
the best to use because they're a light shock.
Heavy or even medium shocks will give a rough
ride in a vehicle as light as the sami.
