3" Spring Swap Out. Best Springs? Savvy? Best place to buy Savvy?

I am getting rid of my Rusty's springs and need some 3" springs for my front that will hold up my heavy front bumper and Warn M8000. Ideas? I plan on buying within a couple weeks or as soon as...today hahaa

Savvy Offroad is the only place to get savvy gear as far as I know.

OME makes a heavy spring though I have only found them in 2" sizes. Currie makes heavy springs too but I could only find them in 4" sizes.

Old Man Emu 2" Front TJ Coil Springs, heavy, OME2933 - JeepinOutfitters

I am curious to what you will choose as a winch is close and my ride is real bouncy even with Blistein shocks with the Rancho coils.

There has got to be a heavy coil for 3". Could you do me a favor and measure the distance between the top and bottom of your coil not including spacers or insulators. I want to see if my coil is flattened any.

Savvyoffroad.com

That's it. They don't distribute their products through anyone else. The springs are made by Currie but are sold as a Savvy part. From what I've seen (I run them up front) they're very tough springs and won't sag any time soon. Currie springs were used on the Savvy/Currie KOH rig, as well.

Cool guys, thanks! I know my front springs are 3" and I have no issues at all..I kinda want to stuff 4" and see what happens. Everything that could have been done has been done or over-done at some point so I am not sure what issues that would cause.

Well, the "Savvy" springs are Currie springs so you can buy them anywhere that carries currie products. Also they do make a 3" spring. Though they say only the rear are heavy.
Currie Progessive Rate Springs

If you don't have a SYE you might get vibs. Do you have an adjustable front track bar? Might need one. Might need different size sway bar links. Brake lines might be a problem. Also you would want proper length control arms with that much lift to help castor and pinion angles. And last but not least you will have to look at your bumpstops and shock lengths. There may be others as well.

im in the same boat, but i think i am just going with BDS. I havent heard a single bad thing about them and if they ever sag, they have a lifetime warranty. I called to confirm this. The springs dont matter as much as the shocks and arms AND BDS's are much cheaper than SAvvy and you can get Free Shipping...

Everything you mention is either on it or laying around here somewhere. My jeep was lifted stupid high before the current setup. I almost want to scrap everything and start from scratch....

If the springs don't matter than why is he replacing Rustys?

I have seen their stuff before. Do you order directly from them? If not, where are you thinking about ordering from? Thank you!

Have you checked into AEV springs? I have a set of 3" AEV progressive rate springs for sale that handle weight very well. Check them out, if you are interested, PM me.

Not trying to spam your thread, but I have had them on two Jeeps now and love them for weight. I just switched to a longer and softer spring for what I am doing now.

BDS springs are good and from what I've seen, hold up really well. And yes, while the most important part of link suspensions are the links (arms) themselves, crappy springs can suck big time. Been there, done that. Just like anything else, use good parts and the rest will take care of itself.

Call them at Savvy and chat with them. They can help you pick the right spring for your setup.
