droppin' my YJ a couple inches

bet you thought i meant making her a low rider didn't ya

so currently i have pretty much the RE 4.5" lift kit on the YJ. and a 2 body lift and running rubicon flares and beat up a lot of sheet metal. used to run 37s no problem on this setup.

so heres what i want to do: the jeep sits to tall for my liking. i want to take a few inches out of her. i've thought about just removing the body lift, but i have a few spun bolts; not fun to play with those. and they are in the bad spots as you'd expect.

so heres what i want to do; i want to drop the height from 4.5 to roughly 3" i'm looking at Rubicon Express 2.5" springs, and i'll sell my current ones so it'll help with cost. in doing this i plan to eliminate my tcase drop with a 1" motor mount lift. so overal clearance at the TCase should be thesame, but lower COG.

question i have is has anyone taken a spring out of the main 4 spring pack to drop the jeep a bit? does that compromise the springs ride?

i'm runnin 35s now, and intend to run them on the 2.5" springs and 2" body lift. just curious if anyone else has done this, and more curious if anyone has taken a leaf out of hte pack.

thanks

i removed a leaf once in my bds pack. dropped me about 3/4" inch.

as for ride quality, remember...the flatter the spring the better it rides...
