Anyone use ZJ or crown victoria springs???

I've heard that you can get 1-2 inches of lift for your TJ with the use of ZJ springs up front and crown victoria springs in the rear... If anyone is using this setup can you let me know the details please. Can these springs go in as direct replacements or do I need to modify something else also... thanks

zj springs should be direct swap in, you want the v8 springs though. Not sure on the car springs.

I have 98 zj springs in front and crown vic in the rear it gave me 3.5 in rear and 2 in front but i have a 350 under the hood. Front fit right in make sure you get isolators with zj springs.Rear you must cut about 3/4in from top of spring so it will fit over pearch. Rear track bar bracket is needed

Thick rubber pieces that go on top of springs you need them to get full 3.5in of lift.

yeah i was wondering about that. The stock front springs are about 5" taller than the rears with out any weight on them so the fronts will give you about 4" of lift when installed in the rear. Any one actually done it? I've never seen it happen.


(front springs are softer than the rears)
