Rubi springs
 
Alright i understand that rubi springs arnt any longer and that they're just stiffer, but i've got a 99 SE 4 banger with 155,000 miles on the stock springs. Now im just going to assume these springs have sagged some, and im also going to assume they're the lightest springs that come on a stock tj. I found a pair of springs from a rubi and they're the 129aa's in the front and the 106aa's in the rear. I'm assuming these are significantly stiffer than the springs i have in my 99 SE 4 banger so i assume they'll give me about an inch of lift combined with the fact that they're stiffer and my old springs have probably sagged. I can get these springs cheaper than a body lift and they'd be simple to install too. Do you guys think its worth it for me to get these springs?

HECK YES!!!!!

I traded in a 98SE on my Rubi and did this same thing about 6 months prior to trading it in. I got about 1/2 of lift out of it. But the thing to remember is your really not getting a lift, your essentially going back to stock height. If you get much past stock height you would be one of the few. But hey, every Jeep is different you might actually gain a 1/4" past stock. If so all the better.
I say go for it at that price.
I sold my Rubi shocks and springs for $225 + shipping so your getting a pretty good deal as well.

So if I understand what you guys are saying, our factory original suspension parts acually are worth something? I would think shipping these heavy parts would cost more than they are worth.

I was thinking about doin this also for my jeep. I do know tht my left side is 1 and 1/4 inches lower then my right side in the rear. I must have some serious sag issues. Anybody know where I can get some springs?

If you have a Rubi you would be surprised what people will pay for your "take offs" :punk:
