you might gain it back but it would more likely be around 3.5 inches or so because they will wear in and droop a little, it takes a bit of time for them to settle but you should be very close to where you want to be after installing them. Any reason you have steered away from going SOA?

If you go soa and get waggy springs you'll make your four inches and then some, its what I'm running (and most of the YJs I run with too), plenty of room for 33s or 35s and increases your flex considerably, regular waggy springs will also make the ride a lot nicer with the stretch and its a perfect time to do an axle swap in the rear and get rid of the D35. Of course you have to have the money to do the swap and its not exactly hard but it can be time consuming =P just some food for thought

It shouldn't mess with it since you aren't lifting it higher, you will have to have you're driveshafts lengthened though

Just keep in mind that Waggy springs come in two flavors.... a thin pack ...more flexible and a thick pack ...stiffer.
And no it wont mess with your pinion and you won't need lengthen your d shaft.

If he is stretching it he will need to lengthen them...I know from experience, if you put them on the non stretch way then there is really no benefit to having them unless your springs are completely shot which he already has a 4" lift so I doubt he wants to swap over to waggy springs and have no benefit to the swap at all.

I'm currently in the process of collecting parts to go SOA and have decided to use the Waggy springs. I know that many recommend the 7 leaf springs, but I found a set of 4 leaf Waggy springs (front) locally for 50 bucks so I picked them up. Does anyone have any experience running the 4 leaf springs? I want to go 7 leaf for the rear to compensate for the weight of tire carrier, etc. But will running 4 leaf up front be too spongy or dangerous? Thanks for any input!
