3/4" Spacer Up Front With 3" Savvy Springs??
 
Before I got the 3" Savvy Springs Installed, I had a 2" BB with 1" H&R Springs and my Jeep Sat pretty Level.

As soon as I got in the Jeep after Installing the 3" Savvy's, I noticed it was Nose Down. I know when I take the Hard Top Off, it's going to get even more of a Rake.

I have no Added Weight on the Front of the Jeep either.

Has anyone else with 3" Savvy Springs noticed this?

How much lower is it in the front? Some rake in that fashion is desirable to many, including myself.

When it's time to hit the trails and you pack your vehicle with everything needed, all that added weight can bring the rear down. Having a bit of rake means you're level when you hit the trails instead of having a sagging rear.

That's True, but I have no Back Seat so there won't be anyone Riding back there, no Spare on the Back (put it In the Jeep only when I go Wheeling).

95% of the Time, there is not going to be any Added Weight that would make the Rear Sag.

I understand what you're saying. My rig is my DD as well, and I rarely have the back seat in place but that doesn't change what I'm referring to. Most people carry tools, spare parts, food, etc. when they go wheeling, hence the extra weight. I wouldn't even count the spare or back seat in that.

If you read or search through the thread over on JeepForum for the Savvy/Currie 3" lift, you'll see where Blaine from Savvy gives the very same reasoning.

If you have some absurdly high amount of lift in the rear compared to the front, make sure you you were given the correct springs.

Yep, I saw that one.

The Rake isn't Bad or too Noticeable from Outside. But as soon as a I got In, like I said, I could tell the Front was Lower than it was Before.

There's also a Guy that Runs 4" Savvy's in the Front with 3" Savvy's in the Rear, but he has a Winch.

I'll Drive it some more and let it Settle more too and See how it Evens out. But I Think i'm gonna End Up getting the 3/4" Spacers.
