Looking for springs that will yield 3.5" of lift
I'll be more detailed. I am running stock rubi springs & BB spacers. I have about 3.5" of suspension lift right now with a 1" BL & I like it. But the ride is pretty stiff, even with skyjacker hydros. I'd like to ditch the BB, find springs that will give me 3.5" of suspension lift & help soften the ride at the same time. for the record, the ride was stiff even before I added the BL.
after further review, I realized that I have closer to 3.25" of lift. So springs that will yield 3.25" with my 4 banger are now in the running.
The problem I have been running into is even though a set of springs is advertised as 3.5" lift, they usually yield much more than that, especially with a 4 banger like I have.
I looked into RE 3.5" springs, but was told that with my Jeep, the RE 3.5" springs will yield closer to 4.5" and I don't want that much supension lift because I don't want to spend $$ on a SYE and CV drive shaft right now. I emailed an OME retailer about springs, but got no reply.
I have also considered ditching my 1" BL and just getting a 4" lift kit, but I don't want to spend $$ on a SYE and CV drive shaft right now. I don't need a T-case drop with my current setup, but I suppose if I did a 4" lift and T-case drop, the skid would be at the same height as it is now, right? anyway, again, would the springs yield a true 4" of lift, or would it be more? I'd be concerned if the springs yielded more than 4" my driveline would be too far out of whack with just the MML & T-case drop... and I dont want to chance that. Plus, I don't want to end up with a kit that has springs that are too stiff for my Jeep.
So basically I have the same issues with either scenario. But one thing I know is a 3.25" suspension lift (*please note edit to 3.25") with 1" BL is working for me & usually it's good to go with what you know.
thanks in advance for any advice and by all means, vendors feel free to chime in.
