the bucket size is the same ... the rear spring necks down at either end ... think of it like an egg ... the seat for each end is that same diameter as the seat for the front springs

jbone303 I guess I'll have to fab something up. There is only one way to try. Trial and error I guess

ZJ rears work too

might want to borrow a speing compressor, though :o

RedRubiTJ Well, since it appears no one else wants to give you a straight answer, I will .

As far as diameter go TJ, XJ, ZJ, and WJ all have the same diameter front coils.

TJ are larger diameter in the rear.

XJ uses leafs in the rear.

ZJ are same diameter front and rear.

WJ uses larger diameter in the rear but the post hole is larger than the TJ coils (for stock, not the case in aftermarket usually).

XJ, ZJ, and WJ coils are longer than TJ (ie a stock XJ coil will lift a TJ ~1").

HTH.

jherrin215 if the ZJ springs are a straight up swap and lift the jeep then why do more people not just go this route when lifting one?
