Stupid Question!?!

I have a teraflex 2.5 coil spring spacer lift on my JK. Couldn't I just take the spacers out of the front and the 2.5' Tera springs in And it be good? My front end is sagging a little and I'm want some stiffer springs. I thought about just getting stiffer oem springs but if I'm gonna buy springs anyways, I might as well just get rid of the spacer. Am I wrong in any way?

So you want to replace the spacers with springs? Yes, you can do that.

I can give you a quote on some springs or a whole kit.

You can remove the 2.5" spacers but the 2.5" lift coils may not generate a full 2.5" of lift. You may need an additional 0.75-1.0" spacer in addition to the coils if you want to level it. Also, don't remove the coil isolators when removing the spacers.

I am going to guess that if you have a light vehicle that the a 2.5" coil is going to give you more then 2.5" of lift. I was running a 2" aev spacer lift and dumped the front stock 10a coils for rockkrawler 1.5" and came down less then .25" My stock coils were not sagged from age or miles. I just put on a set of 2.5" Rancho front coils on a buddies light 2 door and he is up close to 4". he replaced 2" spacers and was hoping to go up just a bit but his is all jacked up now.
