Stock JKUR shocks/coils

Will stock Jk or JKUR shocks and coils fit my 2003 TJ? Any idea how much lift I would get from stock JKUR coils and shocks? Fit 32's?

Rear shocks take a little grinding of the bottom mount front shocks you have to swap your tj shock bottom mount with the jk bottom mounts

Too bad. Seemed like a cheap solution to my suspension needs. Swapping shock mounts isn't an option unless I could find some at a junk yard. Probably beyond my meager capabilities in any event.

You just have to swap out the bottom piece of the shocks preety easy to do not the actual shock mount on the axel

On the jku ones u can use a spark plug socket and a slightly smaller one that will fit inside it then get a all thread bolt and some washers and tighten it through. The tj one is preety tricky unless you have a vice but I just jacked my jeep up held the shock under it with a socket around the bottom piece and slowly lowered it till it was pressed through.

I have a set also, what parts would I buy to do this with out taking the shocks off, I can't have any down time. On the jk shock, am I removing the rubber bushing and replacing it with the tj one or is it just removing the steel bushing and putting in the bone thing? Lol
