kyledogg88 - Nice jeep. And Go Gators!

BTW, I was hoping to find a set of those Dick Cepek DC1 wheels in all silver but apparently they don't make them anymore (just the silver and black ones that I don't care for). Let me know if you found them online somewhere recently. I'd like to trade out the black wheels I just purchased for a set of those.

this is exactly what i was thinking haha. now to the op... wait it out a while and let the suspension settle. it will break in and the springs will sag a little over time. they are brand new now and it might sit an inch lower in a few months.

Can I just change the springs to the 3.5" ones you mention or even a set of 3" springs, without causing an issue using the fixed pro comp control arms that came with the 4" lift? Or would that push the wheels to far out? Anybody?

What is the length of the ProComp control arms? If they are 16" you should be fine with 3" springs. As far as the shocks measure those too and check if the collapsed and extended length will cause problems.

Thanks for the response. This is the one I had installed:

4" Stage I Suspension System by Pro Comp and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware-RH3

Any idea how I can measure the control arms? Couldn't find the length in the product info. Maybe I can see if I can measure it under the jeep somehow.

Any particular springs you think would be best to consider for replacement? I would think something in the 2.5" to 3" range would be ideally what I'm looking for.

Also, since the MX6 shocks come with pro comp's 2" lift, I assume I won't have any problems making those work.

Thanks.

I'm not sure if it's eye lit to eye lit on the control arms but I'm almost positive they should be 16" long. To be on the safe side you could always give ProComp a call and ask what the length on the control arms are.

The shocks can vary in lengths the 2" kit may be shorter than those that come with the 4" kit. They are probably 14-15" Collapsed which will work good on 4" but with shorter lift you will bottom out. I just asked MUDB8 about this and he said that the rear shocks would have to relocate the rear shocks. Check out the AEV shock shifters if they are too long and if you want to keep the MX6.

Ive still got my old pro comp arms from the 4" kit in my garage. Theyre 16" eye to eye, which would be okay for 3". But The shock lengths you have may be too long for a lower lift.

YOu could install a set of AEV 3" springs to lower an inch and the ride is excellent.

Since TheDragonfly has measured them and they are 16" stick with the LCAs but the shocks I would recommend replacing. Since they are new you could always sell them and get another set of MX6 or check out the Rancho 9000XLs which I am also planning on getting.

As far as springs I would shop around. AEV springs are some of the best but they are a bit pricey. $360 for just coils. Check out BDS 3" springs about 250 plus 10% off. give jason @ BDS he is very helpful.

Well, I was going to be a little more diplomatic but...yeah, what he said.

Seriously, I think it looks great. I'm planning to go from the street oriented 35" tires that came on my TJ to a more off-road capable 33" tire. I only hope mine looks as good as yours when I do.

TOO MUCH !!!! just sell the jeep to somebody and go buy a honda

JK even though i dont see why you think its too tall, my suggestion is for you to armor it up. if you add a good 500lbs of bumpers winch skid plates and what not it will sag wanderfully

Paint the flares, it will look much better and the black wheels will match better without the faded flares in the picture.
