Sahara to rubicon

I have a 97 sahara and recently bought a set of rubicon wheels and tires. I was told they may rub with my stock suspension while off roading. If they do would a set of springs from a rubicon solve the problem? Is it true they add an inch of lift to a TJ?

The Rubicon springs have a higher spring rate (are stiffer) than the other TJ coils, so on a '97, you will probably get between 1/2" and a full inch depending on how much your springs have sagged in the last 9-10 years. But two brand new vehicles will have the same ride height. I would mount the wheels and see if you have issues before you begin fixing things that aren't broke!

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

well many people run 31's with stock suspension and have no problems with rubbing...they might be a little stuffed at full flex but thats about it...they won't rub when turning because you'll have the 8" wide rubicon wheels...and with the new springs you would sit the same as a rubicon so that WoUlD fix your problem as a stock rubicon won't rub but you will probably be fine without the new coils

At the very most, you could put a set of coil spring spacers to get an extra 1/2" to 1".

I doubt you will have an issue, especially if you don't disconnect your front sway bar.
