What your experience with Savvy 3" springs on LJ

Who has the Savvy 3" springs on an LJ?

1) How much lift did you get front and rear. If possible please let me know the length of your compressed spring at ride height and how heavy you are.

2) How do the rears handle weight when the LJ is loaded up?

3) Will I need adjustable control arms and adjustable trackbars (height dependant)

I know there is a big thread on the Savvy springs, I have read through it over the last couple of years but don't remember all the details. So I am looking for some LJ specific info. Although experience from TJs would be valuable as well.

Basically I am not currently happy with my current setup and I am considering changing either my springs or my shocks. I have the Rancho 9000s so I figure these might be the best springs to get since they are sold together and others like the combination. However, I don't know the final spring rates so I can't figure out how they will compare to my current setup for carrying weight. Also, I don't know how much lift I should expect front and rear. I've read some are only getting around 2"-2.5" but I wanted to see if thats normal or not. I currently have a 2" lift and like my height. So I'm not really looking for a 3" lift. So I wonder if the Savvys will net too much more lift that I will need adjustable trackbars or control arms or anything else to get setup properly.

No one has any numbers on the Savvy springs? I thought lots of guys had picked these up recently.

Please post when you get them in. I have about 2 weeks to make a decision to get ready for a trip coming up very soon.

It will be about a week before he gets them. Although, they are already broken in so the measurements should be pretty accurate.
