Springs & shocks swap - a little help?
 
Hey guys & girls, been lurking here for a while. I just recently picked up a set of rubi springs/shocks for my JK X and was wondering if anyone with experience can help me out with this? Willing to pay for your help, of course. I'd really like to be a part of the process but if no one can, anyone been to ACOR and what did you think of them?

Any response is appreciated!

Where are you located in New Jersey?

Disheveledhair 02-04-2013 12:19 PM

Elizabeth. Definitely willing to travel though.

I'm at college now but I have a few friends i could get together to do it if you didn't mind waiting a couple months

Disheveledhair 02-04-2013 05:15 PM

Yeah, definitely. I wasn't planning on getting started on this until spring/summer anyway. You can go ahead and pm me your details now or whenever you think you're ready/back in the area.

Thanks so much!

And if anyone else wants to jump in, please feel free. I'd love to meet other Jeepers as well as have people teach me what they know.

Is the swap a lift or just different shocks and springs? What year is it?

Disheveledhair 02-04-2013 07:48 PM

It's an 09 JK X. It's just stock springs/shocks from a Rubicon JKU but should give my 2 dr about an inch - 1.5" lift. I'm gonna pick up some quick discos as well.

So what's the plan? Did anyone commit to helping you with or completing the swap?

Disheveledhair 02-13-2013 06:30 AM

No commitments as of yet. Jersey Sahara hasn't pmed me so I don't know? I've been reading a few write ups and it doesn't seem too hard. I'd just like another pair of hands and someone with jack stands lol. Interested?

That'll all depend on what spring rate ur taking off and what rate ur putting on...

17/56 swapping for 18/59

I'm hoping I'll get an inch but my expectations aren't aimed too high lol.

Takeitoff NJ 02-14-2013 04:30 PM

Share the link so I can see what's involved if you can.

8figgas 02-14-2013 05:37 PM

You def should get at least those results.

That's good enough for me. I'm not looking to go too high.

Sent you a PM.

Me and my pop have a shop in Somerville

Disheveledhair 02-17-2013 04:47 PM

Alright, I'll be adding a leveling kit to this as well. So far, I'm planning to get this done once Jersey Sahara is back in the area in a couple months. Anyone is welcome to join though or help me out sooner. I know once the weather gets qwarmer, ill be eager to get started!
