3" body to suspension

So I have a 3" body lift and I plan on removing it and was gonna get a 3" suspension or 4" suspension but I know with 4" I need D'S/sye, brake ext. ext.

I have 33"s on right now.

I hate the body lift.
But I heard getting atleast a 1in body lift down from a 3" would save me money instead of trying to get all the default hardware.
True or false?

Any ideas greatly appreciated

3" Springs, 1" MML, 1-1.25" Body Lift = keeps cost down and works great on TJ's, especially with 33's.

If you only do springs, yes. SYE/DS will be necessary due to driveline vibes. As an alternative, a MML/BL (1") combination should eliminate those vibes.

Zone makes a 4.25" lift kit comprised of 3" springs, 1.25" body, and 1" mml to smooth out vibes. I'll be ordering mine pretty soon here.

I also have a 3 inch body lift im going to be taking off, I went with a daystar 1 inch body lift. they come with new body bushings, because some of my body bushings are smoked because someone thought they needed to get breaker bar torqued.
