Savvy/Currie 3" Springs

I'm getting ready to install the Currie aluminum CA and would like to also swap out my RC 2.5" springs with the Savvy/Currie 3". I'm assuming this swap will be a non issue given my current set-up, but is there anything I need to consider in doing this with regards to other affected components?
Thanks

Do you have an SYE? If not, you might have to adjust your t-case drop or do the right thing and get an SYE. Other than that it should pretty much be plug and play. Good luck, you're going to love having JJs at each end of your control arms. They're very nice.

I was actually planning to do a tummy tuck and add a SYE as my next project. Sounds like with the spring swap I should go ahead and do the SYE at the same time?
Can't wait to get the CA installed!

So I assume you have a t-case drop? Or did your BL/MML get rid of your vibes? Either way, it may be just enough change that you get more vibes or it might work fine, it's hard to tell. Each Jeep is different. If you do get some vibes you could probably fix them with a few extra washers dropping the t-case a bit until you can do the SYE.

In short you may be able to squeak by without the SYE, but if you can afford it do it. It was one of the best mods I've done to my Jeep. But it is pricey so if you need some time, you can always try it out after swapping springs/CAs and see how it rides, then go from there. But I'd recommend doing the SYE as soon as you can.

New control arms=money well spent! If you can't afford the SYE right away you might be able to get away with a low pro trany mount if you have vibes. I hear the Savvy 3" springs may net more than 3". Are you keeping the Bilsteins? I've heard good things about the Fox shock combo!

Yeah, I just got them a few months ago, so they'll stay put for awhile.
Thanks

No t-case drop...I never did get vibes after lifting, probably am right on the edge.
I will start researching SYE /CV DS combo's.
Any particular recommendations?

Thanks geiman

I've had great luck with my Advance Adapters SYE and Tom Woods drive shaft. I really like TW drive shafts; I've had nothing but great experiences working with them. As far as the SYE, the AA one has served me well but I'd also check out the JB Conversions SYE. I've heard nothing but great things about them. If I were to do it again I may checkout the JB Conversions SYE just because of what I've read, but I don't think you can go wrong either way. They're both good companies to work with.

If you going with the Savvy springs you may as well get the SYE and shaft from them too.

That's what I did, and it's worked out pretty well. Plus if you call Gerald up he can work out some good pricing for you.

Replacing the RC 2.5" springs with the 3" Savvy springs.

I noticed side by side, the rear springs were longer than the RC's and the fronts were actually 1/2" shorter than the RC's.

Does anyone have front and rear measurements of the 3" springs at ride height after install?

Do you happen to have measurements at ride height?
