the rubicon coils are a little stiffer than other tj coils but not any taller. Youd only get some lift from them if your coils were old and sagging. not really worth it otherwise. Some inexpensive coils spacers would be a better investment in my opinion.

the reason the stock rubicons sometimes appear to be taller than other stock TJs are the 31" tires they come with.

From what I recall from my Jeep dealship tech days the Rubi springs would give you about an 1" lift.

coils out of a v8 wj (grand cherokee) will give you about 2.5'' of lift




each of these jeeps were lifted with the wj coils.. to be honest tho.. im not sure what they did as far as the rear goes.. anyways.. each is lifted sitting on 33s

thats probably true if your jeep is old and sagging...but i guarantee they wouldn't give my 06x any lift.

my jeep dealership tech guy also said he fixed my leak between my oil pan and tranny...its been in 4 times and still leakin...time to take it back again

and ive heard about the front tj coils in the rear.. but wouldnt that sit different because of the length in the springs are different

yes its seems. like it shows in the pics from the link above that the springs in the rear kinda bend but nobody has actually had any problems from it. ive been reading about it on jeep forum.
