|nicolas-eric||my 2" BB with rancho RS5000 shocks is smoother than the stock springs and stock shocks.|

|Triple88a||yes confort.. i was planning on getting a 3" rustys but instead went ahead and just got a 3" FT kit since it came with a trackbar and few more extras rustys didnt have (just for 100 bucks more).|

So is softer better as far as comfort?? I get offroad a few times a year. It's mostly my dd to and from work.

|Triple88a||I've heard rustys rides really soft.|

|Chad P||If you need springs I have all my stock stuff sitting in the garage my 04 had 24,000 miles on it but had no sage to them. I want them gone out of the garage need room you can have them for shipping cost. I don't know if that is worth it but you can have them if you want. Or any one can I don't care.|

|Walkeraviator||I keep hearing guys with BBs talkin about how much stiffer they are than springs from rustys... is that true?|
|07-27-2007 02:18 PM|
|jherrin215||Those springs will fit and you will be able to tell a difference with them on. You should get a little better handling characteristics as well I would think. As for the OME question, I know everyone around here always suggests Dirk from DPGoffroad. I don't know about the different feel from the different shocks but I am sure anything that's not super stiff will ride better than the stockers with 140000 on them!!|

Oh yea, I guess with adding the cost of the coil spacers it would put it up another $40 to $60 depending on the deal I can find at the time.
One more question: Does anyone know of a shock thats rides anything like the OME that might not be as expensive?

|Walkeraviator||For the price of shocks, a spacer lift and those stock springs, you could buy a rustys 2" spring lift...|

|cnt487||I'm gonna get them. I think I'm gonna wait til I get some new shocks too since they're original also, and install everything at once. Isn't there some shocks that work for 0"-2" of lift?? I'm probably gonna get coil spacers and put them in too when I do the install so I can get a couple more inches....|

|Dare2BSquare||You can always resell them if they don't fit.|
|07-27-2007 01:37 PM|
|Walkeraviator||I would go for it then.. Cuz it wont change yoru ride at all and it sounds like a good buy.|

Info given when I bought them:
"Used but great shape set of factory Jeep Wrangler coil springs. Springs were removed from an 06 6 cylinder Jeep because a lift kit was installed. These springs have less than 500 miles on them. Replace your worn out springs with these nice ones for a fraction of the new cost. Includes 2 front and 2 rear springs. Will fit 97-06 Jeep Wranglers."

I guarantee the fronts are saggin. Mine are just as old and teh fronts sit 2" lower than the rear. As for teh back, they HAVE to be saggin a little after that many years of supporting that kind of weight.
I am not positive but didnt the suspension change to factory coilovers in the later model years? I am not sure those 04s will go on your 90's TJ.

Question about Stock Springs
I have a 98' 2.5 with about 140,000 miles on it. Still with the original springs. I found what I thouhgt was a pretty good deal on some new springs off a 05' TJ with less than 500miles on them for $40. My question......Is it a pretty good chance that my current originals are sagging any?? I know the front is probably a little bit becasue the front end is leaning forward a little bit. But do you think I will see any increase in the jeeps height at all?? Also, can I expect to feel ANY difference when on the road?? Thank u kindly!!
