jk and tj stock spring length

Ok. I've searched for about two hours trying to find this. How do the lengths of the stock springs from jk's and tj's compare? Is one longer than the other uncompressed? Dont turn this into an explanation/argument about 'why are you doing xyz?' I've got some ideas I want to experiment with. That's all.

There are other factors like spring rate.

See... that's the problem with forums. You ask a simple question and you get answers that don't even pertain to that question. I didn't ask anything about spring rates. All I want to know is the length. That's it. Nothing else. Like I said, I've got an idea or two I'd like to experiment with.

Feel free to share. Do you want to try running a JK spring on a TJ?

You won't get any help with the attitude .... Trust me.

Basically the idea is this. Im looking to see if the jk springs are longer. I dont care if I get any lift. I just want see if they will droop farther. I know the jk shocks are longer and I plan to bumpstop accordingly. The shocks alone can give me more travel and I've heard that jk springs and shocks in a tj ride awesome. So I figured I would give it a shot.

Thanks for the link. I've read that one before but couldnt find it again. I think I'll go ahead and use the rear springs and try to find something else for the front. I just haye the idea of spending a bumch of money on something that costs so little to manufacture.

I bought some used rear springs, just gonna put spacers on the front for now to level it out. It is a temp setup until more money, plus an interesting experiment/project. My reading has said expect 2-3" lift in rear with JK springs on TJ, depending on accessories. The rears I have are 15" -ish off the Jeep. They are the '59's.
