Lift Question

Hey, i own a 2005 Jeep Wrangler with a 3 inch body lift with 33 inch tires. I love the way it looks right now, but I wish it was a little higher. I was wondering if I just added new coils and springs alone, will that raise my car at all? Will it do anything to the car besides a better ride? Is that considering stacking lifts?

1. This is the YJ section of the forum 1987-1995.
2. PLEASE!!! Never refer to a jeep as a car.

Are you talking about removing the body lift and adding a suspension lift?
If you are adding OEM springs you aren't going to get anything. You could add coil spring spacer. How much higher are you wanting to go?

oops, sorry i clicked the wrong form. haha i didnt mean to, i usually refer it to "The sexy beast"! haha but no i would not get rid of the body lift, i was just wondering by adding new shocks and coils, would that lift it at all. I would like to add about 2 or 3 inches. What do you suggest, should i just get a suspension lift, and then how big?

well you need to get lift springs not just new springs. Lift springs usually come in a lift kit which(most of the time) has all the things you need to accommodate the amount of lift your doing....so I'm going to have to suggest a lift kit. But I'm a leaf sprung kind of guy...you'd want to take that up with the guys that run coil sprung jeeps.
