Default Bilsteins at 2.1 or 1.4?

Bilsteins coming soon. Would like to do 295/60/20's in an All terrain tire. 285/65/20 would be second choice, a tad taller. Measurements of wheel well to ground right now are:
36 and 7/16's FRONT

38 and 13/16's REAR

So keeping that in mind should I do 2.1 setting or 1.4? I haul snowmobiles so having at least 1/2 rake is fine but a 3/4 rake would be best. That is why I am considering 1.4 setting. I want to fit 295's w/out too much trouble. American Racing Circuit 20x9 rims with offset +15 and hubcentric adapters currently on vehicle. Thanks in advance-yes I've searched but thought someone might have an opinion due to my specific specs!

Sorry-not sure how I got that. Guess 2.1 is pretty much the way to go as 1.4 would not be enough...assuming those are roughly inches of lift. Thanks for the correction. I fixed the post accordingly.

I would personally suggest 2.1 or 1.4, most who are just using them for a leveling kit will go with 2.1 however if adding them to a lift kit for some additional lift some will use them at 1.4 with no rear spacer or a 1/2" spacer depending on what kind of rake they are looking for or 2.1 and a 3/4"-1.5" rear coil spacer.

The ride quality will be better at 2.1 then it is at 2.8 for sure, and the few I have spoke with that have gone from 2.1 to 1.4 say 1.4 is even better that 2.1 is. Most will agree that with bilsteins at 2.1 or 1.4 it is better than factory ride

Thanks
Jeremiah
