Help With Springs
 
I have a 2005 TJ 6 speed. I first put the Sky Jacker 4 inch lift on with the dual stableizer. That dint help. So I took it to Krazy House Kustoms in New Jersey. They but the JKS single shock on, and all new Fox shocks. That helped my steering issues out a lot. My question is I want better spring then the one that cam with the sky jacker kit. I wanna keep the height but want a smoother ride. I use this ass my everyday car in the winter. Thanks for taking the time to read this

:confused: What problem are you having? I really can't understand the problem(s) you're having from how your post was written. Bad steering in addition to having a too-stiff ride? What type of steering problem? What is it doing? Drifting? Steering jerked left/right when driving over bumps/dips in the road? Is a dropped Pitman arm installed?

Before we get too deep though, exactly (!) what air pressure is currently in your tires and what size tires are they?

Jerry sorry bout my bad post. I am looking for softer ride. I have 33" Mickey Thompson MTZ . I just don't wanna bounce around after hitting bumps.

Sounds like you need to swap out coils of the Skyjacker lift and go with another manufacturer such as OME or Zone for better ride quality. Tire pressure should be around 28psi for DD.

anything over 28 PSI will fill like you are on wagon wheels

A ride problem like that is always going to be either the shocks are too stiff, the tires are overinflated, or a combination of the both.

Your tires should have 26-28 max psi in them. Many shops/people will incorrectly inflate their tires to the pressure shown on the sidewall which is only its max safe pressure, not the correct pressure for all possible vehicle weights. That alone will cause an overly stiff ride.

If your pressure is currently too high but lowering down to 26-28 psi doesn't help enough, new better riding shocks is the rest of the answer. By the way... use 26 psi for when your Jeep is lightly loaded, 28 psi fully loaded with passengers & gear. A couple good riding shocks include the Old Man Emu Nitrocharger, Bilstein 5100 (the version valved specially for the Wrangler, or Rancho RS9000xl.
