savvy/Currie 4 inch lift kit

Was thinking bout buying the Currie 4 inch lift kit with anti rock sway and adjustable control arms for my tj. Couldn't find any reviews on this kit so was wondering if anyone was running it and their oppinion on it.

Last few months ago. I installed 4 currie kit with JJ arms on TJ and My customer was soo happy with his brand new lift. He was bragging about how his jeep's flex at Bronco Peak. He mention about the riding comfort was so great. Hope this helps.

You didn't even think about looking then.

Did you try the search function? Isn't there a thread with a few hundred posts about it? The Savvy/Currie 3 or 4" lifts may get talked about more than the RC lifts these days.

Just giving you crap

Very high quality off-the-shelf suspension. Gets very good reviews. Pair it up with some good shocks & you're golden

Let me give you a small review (think I have done this already but??) I have own several jeeps (yj and now my tj) As soon as I got my TJ I lifted it. Not knowing much about lifts (ok ok nothing about jeeps) I went with what some of my friends told me was a cheap lift (rc 3.25) My thought process was, "hey all I need it to do is put the thing up in the air so I can go over stuff" Well after installing the lift at a buddies house (mind you first time ever touching the suspension on a jeep) it took about 13-14 hours!

Ride quality was horrible I upgraded to there 2.0 shocks and I thought my fillings were going to pop out. Even the wife said my jeep sucked and hurt her neck (true story) so after riding in a friends jeep with the savvy/currie lift I was sold. The thing rode like a very well tuned SUV. (remember it is a jeep not a 76 caddy) So for x-mas my wife contacted blaine he directed her on what to get me. (best wife) After installing and going from RC to savvy WOW what a difference. Just as smooth as the jeep I drove and it was just night and day!

I can't comment on the flex as I didn't take/measure before and after but would be surprised if it didn't improve. The anti-rock is a blast to drive and want to get it for the rear someday (on the long list of stuff) So save your money for the currie if you are the one to replace with better, it will save you money (coming from a guy who knows and has done it). But the one/cheapest thing I did that was the best for my jeep was the black magic brakes. Safety on and off road is paramount and stopping is essential! I want the Vanco some day but till then BMB's!

I run savvy/currie suspension as well and my jeep is a joy to drive. Very smooth and soft but still tight and hard!
Upgraded steering helps as well, I have zero give in my linkage.

I just picked up a currie 4 in lift for my JK and none of my friends have this set up. I also had a hard time finding reviews for it. I follow KOH and I've read about this brand's reliable and superior quality right off the shelf so I'm excited to see how this sits over my current 2.5 Teraflex set up.

I had the BDS 3" lift on my 04 TJ until it was totaled in September. I thought it was a great kit......until I bought my 06 LJ and installed the 4" Currie with the Antirock. It's like night and day. WAY more controlled flex with the antirock, the control arms and the Johnny Joints are silent. I pair the lift with Bilstein 5200's and couldn't be happier. Buy it, you won't regret it.

Here's a picture of mine with the 4" lift.

I've basically got the Savvy 4" lift, I have all the same parts, but I didn't put it on as a kit, I slowly built it up over time. I'm running the Savvy Fox shocks.

I like it, rides good on the road, and does good offroad, flexes very good. I've not ridden in many other TJ jeeps, but I'm perfectly happy with the setup
