worn springs?

So what should stock springs look like? Flat or how much arc should they have?

Mine are barely arched when empty. Been like that since day one. Four adults and they arch downwards a bit.

Day one was back in February 1994 when I drove the thing off the lot with 7 miles on the odometer. It has 112K now. I only use it for recreation the past few years. I've noticed no noticable sag in the spring arch at rest, but I haven't measured.

OH, and no, it's a soft top, so maybe that helps a little.

Was just reading some of the posts and saw yours. Are you telling me that you have springs on your 94 wrangler? I have NO springs, just shocks. Would love to have some springs to smooth the ride, as I put 500-1000 miles per week on mine. Let me know. Thanks.

The above pics are with stock worn out springs. I currently have a Rough Country 4" lift. Still running 31s and they tuck very nicely without too much fender rub in the really twisty stuff.

You guys are cracking me up, I'm on the floor, but I guess I never will know what new springs look like.
