I'm looking for front coil springs size 17 for a '13 JKU.

Why 17s? Just curious...You should be able to find tradeoffs for cheaper, but Mopar Online Parts has them reasonably priced for new.

Thanks got the suggestion. I'll check them out. I currently have 16 in front with 2" TF leveling spacers. I'm adding a heavy bumper and might add a winch in the future. I'm looking ahead to compensate for height loss caused by the added weight.

I'm asking because you'll probably only get a .33" max increase from a 16 to a 17 in front. I think you saw my thread where I gained 2.25" from going from 14s to 18s, but I think that's pretty high. The general consensus is .25 to .33" of lift per number increase. I may look at getting 18s or 19s if i were you. What are your rear numbers?

For some reason the 19s were cheaper new ($33 vs $42/piece).

Do you already have an Unlimited? If you do, you're lift will be very minimal from what I've read. My above lift numbers only apply from moving 4dr springs to a 2dr.

I have a set of 18s and 59s for the rear. PM me and we'll figure it out.
