white91yj my guess is they are off road use only Pro Comp springs..

87gn The jeep came with hydraulic shocks and I've since replaced it with Bilstein 5100 gas charged shocks. The ride to me didn't change. I understand the jeeps have a harsh ride...but mine is way beyond harsh. I had someone drive behind me while I was going over some pot holes and they told me that the rear tires actually came of the ground a couple of times. This is driving 10-15 mph. I think it's time for these Pro Comp springs to go. Just gotta figure out which ones to replace them with. Thanks everyone for your suggestions. Nick

GroceryGrabber IMO ride quality is almost all in the shocks. Hydro shocks are pretty nice, like turdhurdler said. A little more expensive but well worth it.

turdhurdler Are your new shocks gas or hydrolic? I had gas shocks on my Jeep with a 4" lift and the ride was a bit rough. When I replaced with hydrolic, the ride improved greatly.

87gn I did check the shackles...loosen them up...still very little movement when pushing down on the bumpers. Also running 26 psi tire pressure. I was thinking of changing springs...don't know which to switch too or even possibly going with a coil spring set-up. The jeep will be doing some off roading but, the majority of the driving will be on the street. Thanks!!

1kooljeep Pro Comp springs ride rough! What is your tire pressure at? If the pressure is to high it will make the ride worse. Try a lower pressure if your in the 30s try high 20s and also check that your shackles are not to tight so the spring can do its job.

N39-W120 If I read the info on those tires correctly, (and i am far from an expert) that is a bias ply tire so it will be a little stiff. Look for some different tires... I am sure I may be corrected as there are quite a few more with more experience, as I am still learning too...

extreme ruff ride

Need some assistance please on the best route to soften up my 90 YJ's ride and still maintaining the existing ride height. I purchase my jeep in Jan and just got it on the road this Friday and the ride was unbearable. The jeep came with a 4" Pro Comp lift. I installed some new Bilsteins & Swamper LTB 33" tires. Pushing down on the front or rear bumpers would only compress 1/2 to 1 inch at most. Any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!
