Springs & shocks swap - a little help?

Hey guys & girls, been lurking here for a while. I just recently picked up a set of rubi springs/shocks for my JK X and was wondering if anyone with experience can help me out with this? Willing to pay for your help, of course. I'd really like to be a part of the process but if no one can, anyone been to ACOR and what did you think of them?

Any response is appreciated!

-Alice

Yeah, definitely. I wasn't planning on getting started on this until spring/summer anyway. You can go ahead and pm me your details now or whenever you think you're ready/back in the area.

Thanks so much!

And if anyone else wants to jump in, please feel free. I'd love to meet other Jeepers as well as have people teach me what they know.

Is the swap a lift or just different shocks and springs? What year is it?

It's an 09 JK X. It's just stock springs/shocks from a Rubicon JKU but should give my 2 dr about an inch - 1.5" lift. I'm gonna pick up some quick discos as well.

So what's the plan? Did anyone commit to helping you with or completing the swap?

No commitments as of yet. Jersey Sahara hasn't pmed me so I don't know? I've been reading a few write ups and it doesn't seem too hard. I'd just like another pair of hands and someone with jack stands lol. Interested?

17/56 swapping for 18/59

I'm hoping I'll get an inch but my expectations aren't aimed too high lol.

That's good enough for me. I'm not looking to go too high.

Alright, I'll be adding a leveling kit to this as well. So far, I'm planning to get this done once Jersey Sahara is back in the area in a couple months. Anyone is welcome to join though or help me out sooner. I know once the weather gets qwarmer, ill be eager to get started!
