Hackle Coil spring kits for a YJ are expensive and most do not work well. There are tricks to make a leaf spring suspension ride better. Installing greasable shackle bolts and making sure the shackle bolts are not extrmely tight will help most times.

I'm using the jeep as my daily driver so I wanted to know if putting coil springs was better than having leaf springs. I have a 3" lift and 33" tires but I dont plan on going mudding any time soon. The ride at the moment is pretty rough. Very hard. Which I dont mind that much but if I could make it a little softer that would be perfect.

So keep the leaf springs or change to coil?

Thanks in advance.
It's a jeep, they ride harder than other vehicles.
