Keep or not coilovers

I have a Tj with 6 inch long arm suspension with front coilovers but currently it's my DD and I'm wondering if I should keep them because I haven't been rockcrawling as I used to, also I'm planning on lowering the Tj to 4 inch

you gotta keep coil overs! Just spin them up to lower the jeep.

no. Coilovers should have an adjustable upper or lower spring thing. Just twist it up the coilover and the amount of lift will decrease. If the coil overs are REALLY long, then that might not be ideal. post a pic of the setup. this is a mustang, but you can see the coil over adjustment ring at the bottom of the spring.

adding smaller springs would be much less work than trying to raise the towers, but raising the towers would be the better option to keep the longer shocks and retain uptravel.
