No more lift I like the height as is. The primary goal is to put a three link on the jeep, the coil-overs are a result of that. (I will not require coil buckets and it opens up much needed space for links under the jeep) the desired outcome is better street characteristics, less brake drive, a suspension that does not take out the canister when it flexes and the side benefit is better front flex. The biggest reason to do it is for the fab experience, it will be fun. I am sticking to rear springs because it is done and a four link in the rear and 3link in front cost too much.
I am guessing you got the 3-link kit like I saw on polyperformance.com. Yeah, getting the 3-link front and 4-link rear all in one shot IS a lot of money (around $2500 just for the kits, not including the coilovers...if I remember right) to spend at once when you may not have it available either in green mail or plastic. I can sympathize with that. Are you planning on eventually doing the 4-link in the rear? I'll be keeping up with this one so I have an idea of what may be involved, etc. if I undertake such a suspension modification.
