Currie 4" spring length

Can anyone tell me the length of the currie 4" springs at ride height?

I have rough country 2.5 springs, and sitting at ride height the spring is 14" front and 11" rear which is causing a hell of a rake without the use of 3/4" spacer on top of a 3/4" stock isolator. I want to get this same height while improving spring rate. I know the currie 3" springs sit around 14" front and 10" rear while at ride height. Going to the 3" currie spring would sit at a more level stance than the RC ones I have, but now I am not sure i want to loose lift height by going that route. If the currie 4" springs sit closer to 16" front and 11" rear then that would be more ideal.

Gerald at Savvy carries 3 different length springs for the 4" Currie springs. The different lengths are to compensate for light/average/heavy rigs and still net 4." Stock front springs are 12" at ride height. G can probably get you very close to 16" in the front, and level in the rear.

On my jeep as well as many others I have worked on the fronts measure right about 16 1/4 at ride height.

Mind you that is mostly with light weight armor I.e SAVVY bumpers and winch plates with winches

Given that info. That should give you a stating point as to guess where your jeep will sit depending on what it's equipped with weight wise. If your jeep is not overly heavy. You should probably be right at 16

I do not recall the rear measurement

Hope this helps

Most of the 4" Currie springs I've measured are ~16, usually a little taller. I just did a full Currie install on a TJ this weekend and fresh out of the box the fronts sat at 17" under a light TJ.

17 is going to be a little tall for me. I know it will settle, but a more accurate measurement yields 15.75" including the 3/4" spacer added for leveling.... maybe the +.5 3" springs would be more for me especially since I have the 4 cyl.

I know this thread is for 4", but since I'm the OP.....

Can anyone give the Currie 3" spring length at ride height? Front and Rear.

I should start to compile a list of spring measurements with engine and bolt on variables. This might not be beneficial to everyone, but it would help some of us for sure!

Given the fact everyone would need to measure from the same point! Maybe a picture with a tape measure showing measurement positions for reference in the opening post....hmmmm

Anyone got/get a picture of this?

I believe Currie springs run true to height... as advertised.
That assumes you have an after market bumper and a winch.

Before they started selling different lengths, I bgt Curries 4" springs.
With my factory bumper and no winch they measured 5" (17" total) for over a year.
One month after installing a JCR bumper and a winch (total added weight = 130 lbs)
they measured exactly 16"!

I have measured Curries 3" rear springs on two different TJ's.
On both, they measured exactly 11", or 3" of lift.

Not nick picking, but if they run true to height....then it wouldn't be after adding a bumper and winch... but I get your point!

Anyone else have currie 3" spring lengths at ride height?

I assume the plus/minus .5" that is now offered if based off the original 3" springs that yielded a true 3" lift with the stock isolator installed and a 14" length at ride height. Can someone confirm? BTW I do still plan to call savvy and do some inquiring, but I like to have real world data as well.

I've measured some of them at over 22" for the front free height.
