first you asked if JK springs would work on a TJ, now your asking if JK coils will work on a TJ. Is there a difference?

I was just wondering if there was a difference between a coil and a spring. Thought maybe I missed something along the way.

if your looking for a cheap way to get some lift, look around for a set of coil spacers. You can get 1" to 2" spacers. If you dont disconnect and flex to the max, you can probably run stock shocks for a while. You can get used spacers pretty cheap somewhere. A 2" spacer and you can run 32's. Even with my lift, I run a 1" spacer in the front to level it out.
