Don't forget, you need 2 of each.

Sorry, here you go Disraeli
Thanks, Mark.

NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A 1,000 curses on your Jeep.

Great, now I gotta add Bilstein shocks to the mix.

This $130 job is quickly turning into a $600 job.

Yes...your springs are about as stiff as overcooked pasta. Adding the 19/60's to the leveling kit will give you ~ 3"+ up front and ~ 2"+ in the rear, for about as cheap as it gets.

Should be some 19/60's on CL, but you can buy em new for around $150 (I think...might be a little more or a little less.)

$600? I've got nothing riding on the game, and in fact wouldn't be at all horrified if a crack in the Earth's crust opened under the court and swallowed up both teams (okay, I'd be a little bummed if it happened late in the 2nd, denying me game-closure).

So I'll pull for Kentucky in the hopes that you can bag the six, and thereby outfit your Jeep with some free mods. Like, say, 2.5 grab handles and a scented paper-Jeep-on-a-string for your rearview mirror. Good luck!

I ended up buying my lift, shocks and front ds from them. Awesome stuff, so far.

Here is two picks. First with 19/60 coils no spacers. Second with 19/60 and the leveling kit (even though different tires/wheel they are about the same height)

with 19/60 coil swap only

With 19/60 coil sway and leveling kit
Ooh .... I like

Yes they fit fine. It has an offset of -19 or 3.75 bs. You can do a search, there are many threads on what 15" wheels fit and what doesn't

I had the shocks and leveling kit done at the same time. they charged 3 hours labor ($70/hr). If I was doing the coils at the same time it wouldn't be anymore since the coils have to be removed to add the spacers.

yes. The spacers will add exactly whatever width they are. Coils compress with weight the spacer are whatever they are.

rics1997:: Did you buy them online? How much did you end up paying to get them installed if you don't mind me asking, unless you installed them your self, which I will not be doing. lol
