Lift Kit Upgrade Help

I am currently running on a TeraFlex 3" lift kit that is almost 10 years old. I know that it is sagging some now and I would like get it back up the its previous lift height.
Would replacing the springs correct this problem? If this is the case, what are my options with spring replacement, and is there any way I could get a little more lift out of the TeraFlex kit?

Thanks

replacing the springs will cure your sag...you can get more lift by bigger springs or coil spacers...i wouldn't go too much higher though.

Would 1" more lift with larger springs be safe to do? Also, what is a good set of springs to go with? I am thinking maybe roughcountry, currie, or teraflex but most places I look I can only find a full kit and not a set of springs.

1" more on that lift would probably be alright...but you may need a sye/cv driveshaft if you go any higher than you are already...do you have a tcase drop?

rusty sells 3" springs.

The sye/cv driveshaft is in the near future. I have a tc drop on the jeep right now. I am planning on doing the sye/cv conversion at the same time as the new springs.

Wouldn't the 3" rusty springs only put my Jeep back at the height it was when the Teraflex lift was new? I see that they have the 3", and 5.5". I am thinking the 5.5" would be too much.

correct...

if the sye/cv driveshaft is in the near future then you could probably make due with a tcase drop until then...temporarily
