Spring, Sprong, what springs?

I am not going to buy anything now, taking a break from the Jeep for a bit. But, right now it has a 4 inch lift spring, I think they are Terraflex but they could be Rough Country. PO BS type thing!

So, I toss around, staying at 4 inch lift but getting a Currie/Savvy etc. spring or going to a 3 inch springs of some sort or I am kind of attracted to the concept of the Metalcloak 3.5 spring. It is the 3.5 inch length and claimed on road stability and ride I am attracted to. I have no intention of posing my Jeep on top of rocks, Ford F150s or other Jeeps, cool as that might be, I have no interest. Would the Metalcloak 3.5 be a waste or are they still an advantageous spring? Trying to get ideas, between a Currie 3 inch, Currie 4 inch, Savvy 4 inch, Rancho 3 inch and Metalcloak 3.5, which would set my Jeep slightly lower than the current TF/RC springs and provide a softer ride.

I have Currie arms now. I cannot buy new shocks until I settle out my ride height. I have no intention either of a winch or super heavy duty bumpers and I am running 33s and that is as big as I ever intend going.

Any thoughts on springs, I favor good ride quality? I am thinking Bilstien 5100 shocks.

My Jeep as it sits today:



Another reason I am thinking to go down in lift just a little, other than making it easier to get into and better ride quality perhaps, is I am tired of chasing driveline vibes. My Jeep is still just a touch harsh right at 48 MPH plus or minus. Silky smooth at all other speeds. I know I can keep fiddling and tuning and that I NEED to but maybe dropping a little lift would make the Jeep more tolerant of less than perfection.

Thanks,
J
