I have no idea what is going on with the Currie rear 4" springs. When I did Marco's on his Unlimited with his hardtop installed, they came out just like your pic shows. I've done a few more on various rigs and some sit just right and some are low.

I think the spring company is screwing around somehow.

Alright.. So I'm about to regear to 4.88s. I'm debating also putting in air lockers front/rear (Yukon zip lockers. Cheaper than ARB, great review, insane warranty). If I do that, would the stock front axle shafts hold up to the abuse? Or should I upgrade to 27 spline chromoly shafts?

I have no experience with an arb or yukon but I am running 35s on stock inner shafts and superior outer shafts with an aussie locker and 4.88s (manual 6 speed). This year I finally broke an outer shaft which is when I upgraded to the aftermarket outer shafts on a dd/medium throttle rock/hillclimbing/non-technical driver. I would say if you are on 33s, you would probably be fine but it is nice to have some piece of mine.
my 2 cents

Edit: I ran completely stock shafts (with all the same stuff as listed above) for almost two years before the break.

Well, just scheduled an appointment to have the regear and lockers done. February 10th. The day after KOH. Sucks that I won't have 4x4 out there again this year, but it'll still be a good time!

Going with Yukon 4.88s, Yukon zip lockers front and rear, and upgrading to a larger compressor for the lockers and to inflate tires. Can't wait!

After that, I'm gonna order some valve stacks for my 7100s. I wanna play with the valving. They're at 278/75 right now. I want to try more compression and less rebound, maybe start with 255/80. I'll probably put in a flutter stack to have a more progressive compression. That's where you take the second smallest shim, and rearrange it right after the largest. It gives a softer initial compression on the largest shim, that firms up as you get into the rest of the stack. This is all new to me, so it'll be trial and error.

Could you document the revolving pretty well? I want to do something similar to mine because I have the same shocks.
