Currie, Teraflex or OME Springs?

My Jeep is a daily driver and has Rubicon Express 3.5" springs. I want to step up to a 4" spring. I have a winch and a custom bumper on the front so about 200 pounds up front. I have a custom rear bumper and a custom tire carrier in the back. I have a Savvy aluminum gas skid so that is not of any weight concern. I also have a 3/16" steel UCF skid plate with steel rocker rails in the near future. I also have Rancho 9000 adjustable shocks. So what springs are going to give me the best ride with all my armor? Currie, Teraflex or OME? I like my ride to be softer than harder.

All I can tell you is that I love the ride I got with the currie lift. Teraflex and OME are both highly respected companies as well.

I don't think springs are a huge deal....there's no real variation with them. Rc probably has the worst quality if the 3. Currie having the best, at least from my research.

Sorry reread, no rc. I think any of those will be fine. Ome makes a HD spring for heavy bumpers and the like.

Sorry no rc springs. I think either will do you fine. Ome makes a heavy duty spring for heavy bumpers and the like...

Looks like Currie no longer sells the different varieties of their springs. I cannot find any sites that have the different stiffness ratings.

There is a big variation in spring ratings. Do you happen to know the spring rates of the 3 mentioned?

Best bet is to CALL up Currie,Teraflex ARB and get the info on the springs(winds,thickness, and rates).

If this is a TJ, then you are going to want something in the 140-150 range up front, and 160 range out back.

OME HD Springs. Terrible Tera-Flex are garbage and Currie would be my 3rd choice overall BDS being 2nd.

And you state that for what specific reasons?
