Rubicon Springs (TJ) (Factory Lift???)
 
Hi,

I've seen Rubicon springs for sale that were taken off of stock Rubicons where the seller claims that these springs will provide a 1 inch lift to a regular TJ. Is that correct?

Thanks,
Paul

if i'm not mistaken, they are the same height, just a different spring rate. however, if you have old springs like i do that have settled, the new ones will give you an inch or so.

Yeah, it's not constant on everyones junk. Some get some lift some don't. I think that most of the people that get some lift out of it are running the 4 cyl.

If you going to go to all the trouble to remove your current springs and install some rubi springs, for the 1"or less lift,,, just get some coil spacers for a true 2" lift using your current springs, you can keep your stock shocks if you want, or upgrade of course.

I have rubi springs on my TJ it did give me about 1 inch of lift. They are only about 1/2 an inch longer but they are stiffer. I like mine I plan on adding a bb to it also so I can have even more lift for a cheap price. I'll show you pics of mine if you want.
BTW: I have the 4.0L

Here are a few 6 months later after I added the springs. Its not a huge difference but notice how it sits much higher than the Grand behind it.

Like I said the difference is small but it will help once I add the BB. I notice it because I kick the tub of the Jeep when I get in b/c I'm not used to it being a little taller.
