AEV leveling kit to Synergy lift

Hello, just curious on your thoughts.
should I leave it alone, or change the rear springs too ??

had the AEV leveling kit, and I just installed
Bilstein5100 all the way around,
and Synergy (2-3") progressive springs in the front. ( removed all leveling kit shock brackets ) these springs got me right at 3" list in the front

from Fenders to ground ( center of wheel )
Front is 40"
Rear is 38"

I was considering getting the next size lower Synergy spring for the back ( 1-2" )
which will likely get me 1.5-2" in the back ( leaving the rear aev spacer on top of these springs )

You can't measure your fenders because the front sits higher! measure your pinch seam

^ I will measure that, thanks.
I have a friend who has a Teraflex leveling kit with rubi-shocks and springs. didn't take a picture, but measured his at my house;
same way
Fenders(center) to ground
it looks good, and was 39" front, and 39" rear

That's right on. That spring list 2" four door and 3" 2 door.

Without weight +1" or so.

For 3.5" synergy recommended 4's and 3's. this is with a lighter rig.

Hello, I measured the Pinch seams.

Sitting just over 1" higher in the Front.
This is with my Hardtop OFF , it might be 1.25-1.40" lower in the back after I put the hardtop back on.

I may leave it alone, get a softop for summer months.
or get the Synergy (1-2") springs and try it first with the rear AEV spacer,and if it sits too high in the back I can replace it with the OEM isolator.
