looking for some front springs for my 03 TJ that will give me 3.5" of lift, not a 3.5"spring that actually gives me 4.25-4.5. trying to even the Jeep out without adding more spacers.
I have a winch and a hardtop.
looking at the 3" BDS....should be close
any help would be appreciated

Randy

My old 3" Tera coils netted me about 3.5" on TJ. This was without any extra weight though, don't know what effect tire carriers/front bumper/winches and whatnot might do as Tera's been noted for sag. RE will give you the 4 or so inches that you're trying to avoid, so rule them out. Black2001TJ runs them on his and I don't believe he's experienced much sag.

I sit just over 4" with the RE 3.5", I don't think they've really sagged any and I've had them for 40k miles... I have a heavy rear bumper 2 for what it's worth
