Kinda scared to ask, but did a search...

It seems that most of the posts I read are responded to by a Mod saying, in a none to kind way, search before asking, Dumb-a$$!

But here goes. I have a 2011 JKU Rubicon that is lifted abit (2.5") and has like 32's on it. I noticed the other day that one of the rear stocks paint is falling off and it makes me wonder if at 74k miles it's time to freshen up the suspension?

Follow up question, I see a lot of newer Rubicon suspensions for sale around. Will any JK Rubicon suspension fit on my 2011 JK Unlimited Rubicon?

Thanks!

Paint isn't a big deal, you'll usually see the shock leaking when it's toast. (But not always.) At that mileage it would be wise to be proactive and start your search.

Shocks are the same for 2 door and 4 door. Springs vary and no one can pinpoint the exact logic used by the factory, but I can tell you a 2 door will have softer springs and you'll lose lift. Lots of deals to be had on craigslist for Rubi take offs. Also the Rancho shocks seem popular around this place, I don't run them so I can give an opinion on them.

Good luck and have fun!!

That's funny, because I noticed a guy the other day telling folks to quit asking others to search all the time. I prefer searching myself. If a forum is well moderated, it's very easy to find good info that way. I like seeing the different posts on similar questions, because I get a really large sample of opinions and experiences. It just takes a long time, which I'm sure adds up to lots of ad revenue for any site where clicks and time spent on the site is advantageous.

Maybe it was that other one that begins with a W. I refuse to even look at the place.

It looks like you got the answer you were looking for on your Rubicon suspension.

As far as the issue in telling someone to search, its like kJeeper10 said, no Administrator or Moderator on Wrangler Forum would tell someone to do so.

The forum rules clearly state:

Quote:
While WranglerForum does offer a search feature, we do not require anyone to use it before posting questions. We realize the search tool is crude and it is the helpful nature of this community that makes WF what it is and sets it apart from the others. Likewise, if the only reply to a thread you can offer is to "go search" or "use the search" please don't. Telling users, mainly new users, to just search is rude and can drive them away, as the can feel belittled from such comments. Not everyone is aware of how forums work, but most learn quickly.
