any lift from Rubicon springs??

I have a 1998 stock wrangler sport. Someone is selling '04 TJ rubicon springs stating that you can get a 2 in lift just by swapping the springs. Is that true? Anyone heard of such a thing? Will rubicon springs fit my 98' sport? Thanks

ive heard of that myth. i dont believe that the springs will give you a 2 inch lift.

I got 99 Problems but a Jeep ain't one

Well if you get springs that are 2 inches taller under the wait of the jeep it would be the same as a puck lift. I just did a rubicon express 2inch puck lift with the shocks to go with it. When you do lift kits why do you think they give you new springs. I don't know if a stock rubicon has larger springs or not so I guess measure and compare.

no you will not get 2" of lift period.. you might might get close to an inch if your current springs are older and worn..

X2. They are stiffer from a slightly higher spring rate but not any taller than a non-Rubicon's springs.
When you have a choice, buy American.

It may depend on what year Rubicon. I had mine from my '03, and had 3 sets from regular TJ's left over from doing lifts. They were all in a pile. Someone wanted my Rubi springs, I couldn't tell which ones were which. The springs have a part # tag on them, they were all the same.

It's possible Rubicons newer than the '03 were different, check the numbers.

New longer or stiffer springs from aftermarket sources like Rubicon Express aren't very expensive. Then you get what you want.

It's no wonder the country is falling apart - stupidity abounds!
