2dr jk coils vs 4dr coils

I have heard the 4 dr coil springs are longer due to the 4 dr weighing more. Can I put them on my 2 dr and see a difference in height?

Not different lengths, some springs have a higher spring rate than others. The higher the number the better chance of getting lift. Depends on the rate you already have. They go between like 13-19 front and 55-60 rear or pretty close to those numbers. There is no rhyme or reason as to what Jeep gets what spring though for the most part.

Google jeep jk 19/60 spring upgrade.

The answer is maybe. Not all 4 doors have longer coils. If you were to install say 18 front and 58 rear into a 2 door w/ 14/54. You would get 1 maybe 2" of lift.

to the Forum..

Yes you can, but I would forget about the 2 door, verses 4 door scenario!!!

What you want to look for is the spring numbers. There are tags on each spring. The last two digit numbers, is what you want to look at.

The front springs, will range from 12 to 19. The rears, from 53 to 60.
The higher the number, the more lift that you will receive.

^^^This is what the tags look like.......

Your best bet if you can find them would be springs and shocks off a 10a Rubicon.

^^^This is a good recommendation!!!!

The 10A spring numbers are, Front 68196006AA, Rear 68196009AA.
Sometimes you can find these as take off's, on craigslist!

Just did this on my 2014 Willys 2 door...went from 13/52 to 18/59's. Picked up about 1 1/2" in the front and 1 1/4" in the rear. Ride seems much better as well. Found them on craigslist for about $75.

Newbie question: did you have to do anything to account for the additional 1 1/2" and 1 1/4"?

If you are asking if anything else needs to be changed or added, the answer is no.
