1997 original Front springs shorter than 1998-2006?

Ok I did a search and couldn't find anything.

But I measured my original stock 1997 front springs as 16 inches long. I know they are probably sagging some.

I also found a replacement set of OEM springs on eBay and the auction says that the 97 Jeep Wrangler front springs only measured 16 inches long while the 1998 - 2006 measured 17 inches long.

Does anyone know if the 97 TJs had shorter front springs?

Yes in 1998 the wrangler got longer front springs. The ride height was the same so I guess the newer longer springs were softer

I ordered some '98 springs and used them on my 97 and I couldn't tell a difference other than they were new and not sagging
