New coils and springs

I'm sure this has been covered at one point, but here goes. I'm taking my jeep down from 6" to 4" and I've been looking around for new coil springs. I am planning on running the bilstein 5100 or 5150's I think they were ( not the yellow ones).

But I'm at a stand still as far as the coils go. I've been searching and been finding a lot of 3.5" springs. I think I've narrowed it down to either the Currie springs, metalcloak, or the rockrawler springs.

Anyone have experiences with these or advice for others? Any advice is appreciated.

unless you get a spring with a totally wacky spring rate, brand dont matter alot.

currie is supposed to be very nice.
i run re springs cause i tow pretty heavy alot. (their rate is pretty high)
i heard mc rears need quite a bit of bumpstop. (great for down travel, poor for up travel)
i had rockcrawler 5.5" springs on my 2nd tj, they worked good.
i had 4" superlift springs on my first tj for about 100k miles, they worked well, never sagged.

any spring rate between 150 in lbs and 220 in lbs would work fine.
look into teraflex, roughcounty, pro comp, skyjacker, and superlift.
im pretty sure they all offer a 4" spring that would work.
last i saw superlift springs were super cheap!

shocks will determine ride for the most part, unless something it totally messed up.
springs matter very little.

mc springs?

What are mc springs. I am having an issue with my lift. According to the manufacturer (Tuff Country) it is a 4" lift. I bought the jeep used and it just don't look like a 4" lift. I measured the loaded height from top to bottom of springs and it is 14" which confirms that it's not a 4" lift according to another tread that states stock is 12".

I would recommend the Currie springs. I ran through several different sets of springs on my rig. Now I have the Currie springs in the front and won't change them again.

Now I just gotta get around to getting my rear suspension tuned and set up.

My RHD TJ - Savvy equipped... And loving it!

I drive on the right side, what's wrong with you?
