Not sure if anyone knows or has the experience with this, however I'll ask it. The only stupid question is the one not asked, right?

I have a 2017 JKU Sport dual top, no tow pkg. Here's my question.
I have the opportunity to acquire front and rear springs and shocks from a 2017 Rubicon Recon 4door. Does anyone know if it will fit, and will I have any issues or anticipate any issues?
I can't seem to find if the track bar is the same, end links, etc. I know the axles are different, the only thing I thought of is, maybe the perch on the axle is different causing them to use different springs. The numbers off the front and rear shocks are: 68196006AA and 68024461AA
I know I'll get some lift to it, but I can't seem to find if any of the other components are different.

Thanks in advance.

You'll be fine. Look at it this way. The same lift kit and replacement springs that work on your Sport work on a Recon.

That's what I thought, but with the Recon having different axles and a higher stance, I didn't want to have anything else out of excessive operational angles. Was wondering if anyone had access or pics of the part number schematics where I could compare if they were indeed the same or completely different parts.

How much lift would the Recon springs give? 1"?

They advertise 1/2" over a standard Rubicon. Print them on a Sport, I'd expect an inch or so depending on how old your current springs are.

Thanks. They're not old at all. Not sure which route I'm gonna take, still undecided.
