Swapping my Pro-Comp springs for RE's

I'm taking off the 4" pro-comp springs that came on my jeep, and swapping to the RE extreme duty. Will anything else need to be changed? (I don't know the quality of the rest of the pro-comp components)

I did the same thing. Assuming the springs are the same height you do not need to change anything else.

I know the RE springs are supposed to be 4.5", but most end up more like 5.5".

i doubt that you would notice any difference in an inch, unless you are already maxed out on the rear driveshaft lengh etc.
i went from 4 to 5.5inches and didnt notice anything at all.....just check all brake lines etc after you are finished.

Mine weren't. If your springs are taller then you may need new shocks.
