Default Advice on front springs, or reccamended front springs.

hey yall. Im trying to stay at around 4in of lift, Im running sagging rc 3in springs ups front (more like 2in at this point) im running stock HD up country leak packs, with RC shackle relocation brackets, and chevy 2in or 1.5in lower/ lift shackle. As of now the shackle is in the most forward position on it lowest setting, i got a heavy front bumper and winch. i need to pick the front back up, and get it level. i would like to pull the shackle in the bracket, back a notch or two to the rear for better shackle angle. The rear has to be sitting around 4in as the front sitting around 2, and there is a decent amount of front rake right now. What do you guys recommend for front springs. was looking at RE 4.5 springs, but not shure if that would be the correct ones to get.

Rubicon express springs are pretty nice. I have rough country 3 inch which is sagging horribly, so I threw 2 inch spacers up front, which is a cheap way out if you want to go that way. My dad has a zone 3 inch lift and it hasnít sagged at all, so maybe look into that.

I think with the bumper you have and the winch it should put you just about right , maybe a little high at first after some time I think it should be just right .

Go with the RE 4.5s. They tend to be slightly taller than what they say, but once installed and ridden on, they settle in nice, especially if have additional weight up front.
