Metal CLoak 3.5" dual rate springs vs. Currie 3" and 4" progressive spring.

Few questions between these springs.

Metal cloak claims for the 3.5" dual rate springs to have a 23"(front) and 19"(rear) free length.

I'm looking at possibly picking these up, but the compressed length looks like it would need excessive bumpstopping limiting potential up travel due to the high coil count: http://www.metalcloak.com/TJ-LJ-Wran...ont-p/7060.htm

Does anyone know what these springs measure when fully compressed?

And for the Currie 3" and 4" progressive springs, does anyone know what the free length is on both ride height springs front and rear? Along with their compressed length too?

I've pretty much narrowed my spring choice down to these 3 spring sets for my LA kit.

What's the compressed length?
I just asked about these last week.
Didn't find anyone with them on a TJ yet.

If I remember correctly my Currie 4" front springs are 21.75" long un compressed. I forget what the rears are.

The 3" Currie/Savvy springs are 5.5" long at full bind.

I don't know about the others but would like to know as I'm looking for something longer than my current OME springs.

Now that you say that I'm not really sure. I had assumed the front as that is what I'm currently working on but Gerald didn't specify when he mentioned it in a thread.

The fronts are 6.5" and the rears are 7" at full compression. The upper coils that allow us to have the longer extended length do take up some room at full stuff.

These are for the metal cloak 3.5" springs? Are you sure about those compressed lengths? The front springs are significantly longer.......I would have expected the front springs to have a larger compressed length than the rears.........can you confirm?

Yes, Those are for our 3.5" TJ springs. The design of the rear spring made it a bit taller at compression.

What are the advertised spring heights based off of. A TJ fully outfitted with your armor fenders and bumpers?

We based them off of our TJ. It has full body armor, bumpers and awing out with a 37" tire. On a stock LJ they are about 4.25" of lift.
