Rubicon Springs

My 99' tj is on its original springs, and a fellow jeeper, i forgot the username off the top of my head mentioned to me,if i could find some rubicon springs from a tj that were lightly used or something i could get some extra lift in combo with my 2" bb.

so i mean would this workout well?
could i get maybe 1.25" of lift?
how would the ride change with the spring change?


my tj dose have a hardtop, idk how long its been riding with it on (idk when OP got it)

From what I have read here and elsewhere the rubicon spring rate is stiffer than regular TJ springs but will yield no increase in ride height. You might gain a quarter inch or so with a fresh set of springs. But I have no idea how much a TJ sags over the years

That will give you about 0.5" and a way stiffer ride. I had rubi springs in teh front because ma front end sagged. The ride was horrible.
