SilverSport What are the current numbers on your coils?

scottmphoto So what size coils could I get to retain the original height?

TrueBlue I have a 2013 jku sport s with stock coil and after adding front and rear bumpers and a winch, I can see a noticable drop in height and can also feel it when driving. The jeep is not as "bouncy" as it was when stock. So now I'm also looking into better coil to rid that heavy feeling of the jeep. So is RK spring coil good if I just want a more heavy duty spring without the lift?

SilverSport All springs will settle some from when they are new aftermarket included. Hence why 2.5" springs often provide a bit more lift when new.

Check for the last two numbers on your coil tags. The tags generally stay on the coils pretty well. How many miles do you have on your current coil setup?

^This. Thanks Daggo; I'm glad I'm not the only one who understands this.

OffRoadCam09 If you really want to get coils, I'd look at something like rock krawler or aev which have progressive rate springs instead of linear which hold weight better. But an easier an cheaper solution would be to buy a 1" spacer an install that to get your desired height

Help with Coils

Hey everyone -

I have a '12 JK Rubi with a TF 2.5" kit (w/shocks). I also have JKU springs.

I think they are sagging (winch, hardtop, bumpers) may be the culprit.

I would like 1" more lift.

Which coils should/could I get to give me 1" more and stiffen up my Jeep's posture? AND, can I keep the TF shocks?

Many thanks!!!

Scott
