Rubican springs- 19s

I am planning to order a set of 19 springs, the stock is 13 and with the steel bumper and winch I am sagging.. The stock rear is 58 and I dont plan any extra wight on the back. In fact Its topless and no rear seats.

Questions:

is there anything special to consider before my purchase. I have 2012JK sport S ( European )

Is there an easy DYI for the install?

How many inches i should gain out of this mod?

How about the ride comfort with the hard springs?

I decided this path for now so the dealer wont notice (no warranty issues) since I think the spring mix is kind of random and worst i will swap the PN labels so they look stock ( cheating)

It's a real easy swap. Just watch your breather and brake lines and make sure you don't stretch them. No other parts are needed. Just some basic tools, jack, and a couple of stands.

After installing the springs, you will need to center your steering wheel.

Here is a DIY for a 2" lift install. Lift install

* Lift jeep by axle and support frame with stands.

*Remove tires

* remove lower shock bolts

* remove lower sway bar link bolts

* un clip abs/brake lines from frame

* pull out breather hose from axle

*drop axle and remove springs

A pry bar helps work the coils in/out

Simple swap

Great. Many thanks.


How about the lift i will gain out of this swap? Is there a length difference between the 19s and the ones i have..

And what about the ride quality?

Without the weight maybe 1/2" more. def a good upgrade with the bumper.

Ride quality should improve a little. Less dive and a little more stable. Shocks will make more a difference.

Waw- very happy.. Just swapped my front spring 13s with 19s and gained 6cm (2.3") of left on the front, ride is much better now and very comfortable.

Best mod i did so far.. Install took 2 hours.. Just make sure you unclip the break lines...

I have 58 rear and the jeep is level- got heavy front bumper Armo and a steel winch..
