Swapping springs...I figure I'll have to add more bumpstop now that I am at a shorter spring. Atleast until the BL.

I know I can do a TT without a BL, but if I'm going to shell out money for a TT, I'd rather it be as flat as it can be.

I originally had a 3.5" RE SA SF lift on the jeep when I bought it. I don't remember ever getting the bumpstops to ever hit when flexing with the 3.5 lift but I did get the tires to hit the fenders. Then I switched out the 3.5" springs for 4.5" springs. I guess you will just have to see once you get the shorter springs.

What I meant was, why complete the TT and BL at the same time? Do the BL, then complete the TT sometime after that.

Busy day today!

Got my 3.5" springs in the mail and then got them installed...I was going to adjust my pinion angle, but it was so close I decided not to worry about it for now (no vibes below 60mph)

Then I polished my Savvy corners.





I also picked up some self-etching primer and black paint. Now I just gotta paint and install my Savvy bumper so I can get rid of that awful rake.

One big positive about the 3.5" springs is the ride quality is 100x better, and my caster is a bit more normal so my steering doesn't wander.

Yea, I figure the new bumper should stop the rake.

I am stuck, I may just pop them off and paint them the same color as the Jeep...They look much better polished though and I kind of like it right now. It's different.

Where's your inner fenders? Is it a pain to clean without those plastic linings?

I took them out...when I pulled them out I surprised by how much **** was behind them. Now I just spray them and wash them when I wash the Jeep.

Painting my Savvy bumper.

Figure I'll see how it looks once it dries then maybe hit it with another coat if it needs it. I'm at 3 coats so far...
