coil spacer lift question?

I have been looking around for a set of 2.5 inch coil spring spacers, and i found a bunch for JK's and none for TJ. Does it make a difference? Can a JK spacer fit on a TJ?

Any advice or suggestion!

I don't think the jk will fit.. if you need the extra .5 just buy another factory isolator.. for 5 bucks each and get the extra lift ya need.

Straight answer..No..they are indeed a different diameter coil. The JK uses much larger diameter for there coils. Sorry bud...had a buddy pick a JK bb up for cheap hoping it would work on his TJ..well story short...it didn't.

I know of one off the top of my head, but for the price, I'd just buy taller springs.

JKS Manufacturing: Coil Spring Suspension

Ya but if I do get taller coil springs will they get worn out and get smaller? Could anyone point me In the right direction for new springs and shocks? 2.5 to 3 inches of lift.

At the top of the TJ Section there is a "STICKY" for TJ Lift Reviews. Read over that thread there are several different lifts from 2'' to 3'' reviewed. Do ALOT of homework before you purchase any lift.

I personally would recommend either a simple 2'' budget boost or a OME suspension lift.
