4" spring question
 
I am running a Full Traction 4" lift on my LJ, and the rear springs are to soft with the extra weight of the hard top. Who makes a spring with a higher spring weight?

I have thought about picking up a pair of RE 3 1/2" spring or a pair of OME 4" spring to replace the rears. I just do not want to blow $150.00 to $200.00 and end up with the same results.

Thanks

if you buy rubicon springs they are made for higher spring weight. So buy and brand or size you want but get the ones for the rubicon and not the regular TJ's

Rob - are they soft as in squishy or just sagging? If sagging, you can pick up some coil spacers for cheap to bring it back up to height, or buy some RubiconExpress springs.

The springs are not sagging; the Jeep is sitting level. The springs are squishy. With the weight of the hardtop, I can hit the bump stops on the road going over frost heaves. A few weeks ago, we had a nice weekend so I removed the hardtop and it was fine. I have thought about putting a pair of the Air Lift 1000 bags in the rear coils to stiffen them up, but replacing the springs is the correct was to fix it.
