Any 2dr guys with a Poly Synergy kit? How does it perform?

As the title says. Looking for feedback on the Poly Synergy kit's preferably on a 2 dr but id like to hear from anyone who has one of their kits, the good the bad, what you like dislike about it. Looking at doing a Stage 4 eventually. What air/hydro bumps work well with this kit? Been looking at the JKS ACOS Pro but not sure about the added lift definitely wouldn't want the 2" extra lift from the rear ones... Any info/pics/opinions appreciated.

I love the synergy 3" on my rig. I have the short arm version and it has performed flawlessly. The fit and quality of the synergy parts are second to none.

Awesome. From what I've heard about Poly their stuff is second to none. Thats why I'm really looking at them. Plus they're out here in Cali. How does it ride on/off road? Does it flex pretty well? What size of tires are you running?

I'm running 35's now but will go up to 37's with the new front axle. The springs are very long so they stay seated at full droop with 12" long shocks. That is something a lot of other springs don't do. It rides a little stiff now that I took the spare and bumper off the back. It rode great with the little extra weight back there.

I wish they made 2" springs for the 2-door. When I rotated the pinion up for the CV rear driveshaft I had to move the spring perches and as a result it sits up an inch or so higher in the back and looks a little funny.

Good to know. I'm gonna go to 37's hopefully by Christmas so I'm trying to get my front axle built up a little until I can afford something better up front. Does it measure as a true 3" of lift?? You should get the JKS ACOS or ACOS Pro bump stops up front. It'll give you full adjustability of ride height and bump stop length so you can level your Jeep out, and they provide an initial 1" (min) lift in the front with adjustability beyond that (wouldn't recommend the rear bumps because its an initial min of 2" in the rear). The ACOS PRO adds a hydro bump to the ACOS setup. pretty nice and i've heard good things about it. What shocks are you running?? that might make a difference on how stiff it rides too. It's gonna suck but I don't wanna skimp on the suspension since its probably (arguably) one of the most important parts of a Jeep in terms of overall performance, and thus I'm thinking about doing the Stage 4 and probably the Fox full adjustable remote res shocks.

It measured a little over 3"s, but my rig is pretty light. I've thought about raising the front, but it has plenty of room for 37's so I'd really like to drop the back down instead. I'm running the synergy shocks.
