Also, if you read up, there is no such thing as Rubi springs. 4 drs are usually higher though.

Well I want 2 inches of lift without voiding warranty. I tow a small trailer and boat and want a stiffer spring to avoid sagging. I also want to get quick discos. I will check in the morning to see what I currently have but my jeep is a 2 dr sport with a hitch but no max package.

Mine is a 2 dr soft top with nothing and apparently had the softest springs. That's why I gained so much. The amount you can gain depends on what you have now. Let us know!

If I install " 19/60s" on my 2 door sport coming from "14/56" can I add 3/4" spacers all around without adding bump stops , track bar, sway bar, etc. will I need all the things included in a 2.5-3.0 inch lift? Will my steering wheel go out of alignment? Needing a Procal? And finally will I run into driveshaft problems?

I ask this because I haven't heard of anyone running 19/60 from stock usually 18/58 I'm guessing ill gain about 3.0" with spacers and coils? Thanks

That is exactly the set up that I have right now. Nothing else added and no steering wheel issues. I can even help you with the install.

A lift WILL NOT void your warranty.

Some good threads I read first one yesterday but couldn't find it other than our old Pm from my bumper... Thanks again btw your jeep still lives on
Is their a big difference in the bilstein 5100 gas and the ones you which are heavy duty? Are gas worth extra 40? Would I be looking at 2.5" shocks?

Sales person? Really? Read your warranty paperwork and google Magnusson moss act.

From what I heard they are stock coils so they wouldn't know the difference.... But would shock changeout void anything?

How come we can change our oil with receipts and warranty good?
So can I write myself a receipt and warranty still be good?

Hey Daggo,
Just saw pics of your rig. Looks sweet. You really gained some height. One of my reasons as well for HD springs. You mentioned you are running different shocks. Did you get ones for a specific height?

You don't need receipts.

I don't know the term, but is there a travel height for those. Can't you get a shock for a specific height for a lift?

Bilstein heavy duty vs 5100s. It looks like the 5100s are gas, so are higher priced.

Both are gas. The 5100 for a jk are only for 2" lift and above.

Just checked my front springs and they say 52126314AC

I cannot get to the rear at the moment but will check my build sheet.

I have shorter springs in the front (13's) than you did. If I went to 19/60's I'd gain the max height possible using OEM springs. But alas, I'm swapping to "only" 18/59's.

The build sheet will not list the coil part number.
