JKU springs 19/60--What JK model would run these?
 
19/60

Can anyone tell me what would warrant Jeep using these HD rated springs?
I can guess that they would be on a JK 4 door, and most likely a max tow package but I have yet to see them on a Wrangler. I see mostly 17/59's on the on the combo I listed above.
I am looking for a set of these for my JKU and have looked at a lot of classifieds here and on other forums and have yet see any.
I have 17/59's on mine now.

MTH and Daggo did a lot of research into the correlation between JK models and spring numbers and never found a conclusive answer.

The 19/60s can be sourced from a Mopar dealer. Not terribly expensive.

^ This. Since you already having 17/59, switching won't do you much good.

From what you hv, about 1/4" lift, stiffer ride and spring sag will be delayed about 2yrs

so 19 up front compared to 17's won't lift much? I have read other places where it lifts an inch to inch and a half.

The difference is greater with the lighter 2 door. The difference is not worth the work or the money. If you want a lift, get after market coils.

Correct. I did that, and it wasn't worth the effort.

The inch and a half or so stories generally come from 2 doors, or maybe 4 doors that have abnormally low springs.

I had 17s up front in my 4 door and got maybe half an inch out of the swap to 19s. M'eh.

Since then, those 19s and 60s have been sold, and I installed a 2.5" TeraFlex coil kit.

I highly recommend 19/60s to folks with soft sprung 2 doors. Otherwise, I say pass.

ok thanks that helps as I have a jku with 17/58

Didn't I just say all that? :rofl:

No no, you see I take way, way more words. You should appreciate my wildly inefficient writing style. :rofl:

This is what I am wanting them for.
I am getting my lift from a set of JK Manufacturing ACOS adjustable spacers.
I also know that the springs I asked about can be had pretty cheap, even from the dealer. Just wanted to see if anyone might have a set they were unloading.
Either way...these springs will be less than a set from Teraflex or any other after market seller.
After I knew these were available...I just wondered what type of set up they were made for.
Thanks for the info...

19/60 and a TF leveling kit, will probably get you a solid 2.5" lift...

Yeah, if it's a 2.5" "leveling" kit.
