i have a 2001 zrt and i am a bigger person. i would like to adjust the rear suspension so it doesnt ride low and bottom easy. i have the stock adjuster blocks on highest setting. How much stiffer would aftermarket blocks make it? how would it affect it if i also switched front spring arm holder to a taller block? also for the rear arm where it mounts to slide rail, there are several other holes. how would it affect the ride if i moved the mounting forward or back along with bar that stops it? right now it is mounted in the second hole from the front as it was from dealer, and the front spring is set pretty tight.

I am in the same boat. I am 6'2" around 250ish and want to know what rear springs to purchase or what blocks will help a bit?

Depending on your application the long leg may need to be cut shorter.
I'm 285# and these springs work beautifully in my ZR800CCE.
You'll want go to a heavier shock oil or firmer valving in the rear shock increasing the rebound damping to control these super big boy springs.

Good Luck and enjoy!
