Springs

I have stock springs on my JKUS, 17/58 with a tereflex leveling kit. Is it worth scouring the forum for a Rubi owner looking to get rid of 19/60 rate springs for better porformance and a little more lift?

and the chances of finding someone with the 19/60 springs is super rare. mostly 18/59's

Sorry, but it's a JK, regardless of the number of doors. The "U" and subsequently the "US" and "UR" were "invented" by the internet forums. Is "US" a Sport or Sahara? It was so much easier when they were X's.

I had those same original numbers, and then added 3/4" spacers and switched to 19/60s. The overall difference was maybe 1.5".

In other words, you could expect to get maybe three quarters of an inch from just the coils--not worth the effort or the cost.

Now if you had a 2 door with lower springs to start with, then yes. But for you now, no.
