Default Need information on suspension travel

I found a suspension set up for sale that I like to try with my '91 NA. The seller is offering Tokico Illuminas, FMC 36mm bump stops, NB top hats and OBX coil over sleeves (machined to fit properly (?)) with 350/250 springs.

I would like to know a few things before I pull the trigger on the buy. One thing of course is the ride height I am like to obtain and more importantly, what is the possibility of coil binding with this set up?

Unfortunately I don't have enough info to calculate this, and cannot find it by searching so far. The seller says that the springs are 5" long (I asked what the other pair were, still waiting for answer). Do any of you kind people know enough about these various components to advise me? I would be most grateful for your help.

If the previous owner didn't experience bind then you shouldn't either. As long as the springs are 5.5 inches long you should be OK with Illuminas.

Thanks for the input. Unfortunately (or fortunately) there is no previous experience with the setup as it's never been used.....

36mm bumpstops should be fine in the front but 46 should engage a bit softer in the rear.
