Installed the new springs today
 
Installed the 18/59 springs today on my 2dr sport and they made a world of difference. I got a little more lift than I was expecting. Ended up with 2 inches front and back.
Took it on a test drive down a bumpy
Road and it is night and day difference compared to the sport shocks.
Only took an hour to install and the stock springs were 14/55.

So you are level with 18/59?

DrDanimalSize 04-22-2012 09:40 PM

pics? before/after? what shocks are you running with those springs?

Zarkstrife 04-22-2012 09:55 PM

I agree, pics or it didnt happen. About to do this with mine. I assume them springs were from a JKU?

Put them in the for sell section, I bet you will get a offer on them. I would think $50 plus shipping would get a fast sell. Or there is E-bay but I hate selling on their. Unfortunately I like buying their lol

Yeah it had the exact lift in the front and rear I was surprised. Went and drove down a bumpy road to help the suspension settle before I measured to.
I'll take an after pic tomorrow when I wash it. Hasnt been washed since the desert this weekend.

You'll have plenty of replies soon enough. We already installed 19/60 on our Arctic or I'd be offering shipping charges.:pop::pop:

If you you ever want a little more the Teraflex leveling kit for $130 goes awesome with this set of coils. Especially if you get a heavier front bumper.

I have the 19/60 with the Teraflex leveling kit

That thing looks good like that. I was really considering doing that. I think I might leave it like this until I do a 2.5inch lift but havent decided for sure yet. I'm still waiting on my duratracs to get here next week. Looks funny with the 225's on there
