Need Help-Rear Coil Spring Swap
Have a issue with with my rear coil springs - ride height vs. weight. I do some pretty hard wheeling from time to time with buddies and gear in back (+ tire carrier) and bottom out pretty easy + lost ground clearance. Additionally, i use a motorcycle carrier that hangs off the back with a 500 lb. bike.

Am looking for a coil swap to stiffen/level out the weight vs. rear ride height. One forum mentioned '97 crown vic rear springs. The upper and lower connects are right. Free height is 15.2", loaded height is listed at 13" - See NAPA AUTO PARTS

My question is this: Would this swap work for a 2005 LJ with stock springs and a 2" spacer ('puck')? OR, What is the free height of LJ coil spring? The 2" puck gives some flexiblity in new coil height i think .

FYI- Due to the pounding and weight over the past 7 years i don't think pulling the current spring would give me an accurate height measurement. ALL comments, suggestions or alternates are welcome. Thank you!
