AEV Springs 4.5" vs 3" with RE 4.5 superflex kit

I bought a 4.5" RE superflex kit minus springs and need springs, would you suggest AEV 3" with a 1.25 body lift or 4.5" for running 35's or other suggestions. Looking for best highway ride.

I would recommend a set of RE 4.5" springs. It seems that the rest of the kit is engineered for them.

HE wants the AEV's because they are a progressive spring. The 3" with the body lift should be plenty. I'm running RE 3.5 springs only and fit 36 TSL's. I do have tube fenders and longer bump stops though.
