3.5 re coils 1 inch bl

i currently have 6 inches of suspension lift and 35s but i would like to lower it to not feel so tippy on off camber situation. i was going to just go with 4 inch coils but would it be better to do something like the re 3.5 inch coils and a 1 inch body lift so i can do a tummy tuck and get a new gas tank skid. or would the 4 inch coils and the 1 inch body lift still keep my cog pretty low. any one running either of these set ups or something similar to compare? Thanks!

I'm curious, too since that's the set up I'm ultimately aiming for.

The re spring has a very high rate which makes for a short spring. The 3.5" gave me 4.25" of lift. If you want a truer 3.5" spring buy either Currie springs sold by savvy offroad, or old man emu. Both offer several springs in the same size range to fine tune you suspension for the needs of your rig. If you tummy tuck with 4" of lift you most certainly will need a mega short sye.

Ok Thanks! but i'm still wondering, would 3 inch suspension and 1 inch bl be a better set up over just 4 inches of suspension? I know it'll be tight with 35s and i plan on custom fabbing my own tube fenders sometime in the future to make it easier to fit, but what do you guys think

I'm no expert, but it will work well either way. If you want to do a flat belly, you will need the bl if you don't want a massive hole in the floor. So me personally I'd go the 3" spring with 1"bl.


Ironically that is what I have sitting waiting for me to be unlazy. Dropping from 6" lift to re 3.5" springs but no bl and 37's. just need some time to work on it and money for highlines.

So until I'm able to do my tube fenders will I be good running 35s on 3 inches of suspension lift with 1 body?

Provided you extend bump stops correctly you will be fine.
