shotzy Quick question in regards to the synergy springs. If I wanted to install

Synergy 1" front and rear springs (8063-10, 8064-10)
Rancho RS9000XL shocks

On my 2014 JKUR. What size ranchos would I need and do I need to add any other components?

I am not really looking for lift. Just a better handling ride mostly. Any off road improvement would be a bonus.

Thanks

I had just installed the 2's in the front which gave me 3" lift in the front
and just ordered the 1's for the back, synergy said it will give me 2" in the back ( with stock isolators )

I origiannly thought I could just use the 2's in the front and spacers in the back, that didn't quite work.

Bamyrick226 well i have a hard top and spare tire and it kinda looks level now. i may do a winch eventually just not now. just do not want the front higher. i guess i could change out the rear if it didnt work out. thats just more installation time. id like to do it once and leave it

^ looks great.
I talked to the synergy rep. he said that was the best way to level a jeep.
either the 3" in front and 2" rear.

I have to order the rear springs today!

kjeeper10 Unbolt stock and install aftermarket.
It may take a couple try's getting the axle perfectly center, overall its pretty easy.

I recommend the TF monster TB. The adjuster is the same as your stock drag link. Centering the body to the axle is done my turning the turn buckle.
Most TB's you have to remove one side and turn to lengthen/shorten.

Bamyrick226 Cont. after the initial springs are installed? I always hear you can add these lift parts later just don't know how difficult it actually is

Meh... Hard top is not all that heavy. 100-150 lbs or so. Maybe more on a 4 door.

Also, if I use a soft top in the summer. maybe with the hardtop off it will level itself. that I am going to check tonight or tomorrow morning.

talked to the Synergy rep . he confirmed the specs on their springs are based on heavy modifications.

Bamyrick226 I hear you will get about 3 with this kit with no heavy aftermarket parts. I have a spare on the back now and like the way it sits. I may end up just getting the 2 inch coils all around. Now I just need to find out what size shocks this would fit.
04-26-2013 04:20 AM
kjeeper10 Yep, I talked to Dave "pig" and with a light rear he recommended 3" front and 2" rear. I've seen some rigs with 3"/4" coils all around with some rake still. I want to stay around 3-3.5" but go progressive all around.
04-25-2013 09:57 PM
Jared66 I have a 3 inch stage 1.5 lift with blistien shocks. It's awesome. Love it. Goo quality. The reason people say a 1 inch lift actually has shock that are more like 2 ect. Is because their shocks are designed with the idea that you'll have after market bumpers on ect. So at the end of your build. And with regular sag. If you got a 3 inch lift. It sags and settles to 3 inches. Either way. Great product.

1st. This weekend, I am going to remove the hardtop and take a better look on level ground.
and I am guessing it will still be a little too low in the back.
I still have the AEV spacers in the rear, was considering getting the
1-2" (8063-10) synergy progressive coils for the back along with the AEV rear spacers.

or putting back the oem isolators back on in the back(if I can find them in my garage ) and just getting the matching 2-3" (8063-20)synergy coil springs..

I think I am going to end up getting the 1"-2" synergy rear springs and leave the AEV larger spacers on the back...

The front was kinda pain, but I had access to a lift in my brothers pole barn which helped. it took some effort to get the new front springs in.,
Overall, it took 3 hours ( with BS'ing ) installing 4 shocks and new front springs.

04-25-2013 08:40 PM
roxbury29 So far it seems ok. I just installed them last night. I just didn't think it was going to lift it that much. But the ride is soo much better than stock.

I just have to see how it looks with the hardtop off, to figure out what to do with the back. I have a few ideas in mind
04-25-2013 08:35 PM
Bamyrick226 Hey man thanks for the update. 3 inches wouldnt be too bad. i am thinking of changing out the drive shaft any way now just so i dont have to worry about it. is that something you think you will have to do?
04-25-2013 06:23 PM
roxbury29 I just installed Synergy 2" springs in the front ( wanted to elliminate the 2" leveling spacer, and shock brackets ) also installed bilstein 5100 shocks all the way around.

The Synergy progressive springs, and Bilstein Shocks are awesome.
Synergy guy told me the 2" springs are 2" after all mods( new bumpers,winch,etc )

I still have stock bumper and it lifted the front just over 3".
might have to do something to the rear springs now..

but the ride and handling is much better than stock
04-16-2013 06:43 PM
kjeeper10 Synergy is fantastic. They offer specific springs for 2 door 4 door. I wouldn't worry about "too much" lift with Synergy coils.
04-16-2013 06:27 PM
Bamyrick226 Going over 2 inches isn't a problem I just do not want drive shaft issues. Also I am running 35's do I don't want them to look small. Spoke with rock krawler today they seem to be pretty good. I really don't want a spacer lift, I've just heard spring are better. I also wanna run fox shox withy set up. After hearing this, any suggestions?
04-15-2013 11:28 PM
river2c Synergy makes top quality lifts and components. If you only want 2", get a coil spacer lift. Any other 2" coil lift will give you much more than 2" unless you have a lot of aftermarket heavy weight accessories.
04-15-2013 10:42 PM
onetraveller One of the magazines did an install of their advanced kit and loved it. However, they seem to love anyone who springs for an ad.

I have seen reports that the 2 inch springs can give 3-4 inches of lift. Otherwise the quality is supposed to be very good.

They offer a set of 1 inch springs for the 4 doors that reportedly give closer to the 2 inches you are looking for. They might be willing to swap the springs if you call them.
