opinions on my suspension setup

ok as of right now i have 4" teraflex springs and skyjacker hydro shocks with teraflex lca's and stock uca's. i am also on 33"s with tube fenders front and rear. my plans are to do a tummytuck and i would like to maybe put a 3" or 2.5" spring instead to lessen the lca angle and maybe smooth out the ride? here is a pic ofhow my jeep sits now..i dont know if i am crazy for asking this but just want to better my setup

If you want to lower I would keep every component just switch to BDS 3 inch spring or even the RC 2.5.

I've got the RC 2.5" lift with a 1" BL and stock fender flares running 35's.It should ride smoother being lower.

Not with those fenders,but a 1" BL could never hurt.
