as far as I know the front springs will swap right in, you might have some trouble with the rears tho! :D

I've heard ZJ springs will fit and raise a TJ.

if the ZJ springs are a straight up swap and lift the jeep then why do more people not just go this route when lifting one?

Well, since it appears no one else wants to give you a straight answer, I will :D .

As far as diameter go TJ, XJ, ZJ, and WJ all have the same diameter front coils.

TJ are larger diameter in the rear.

XJ uses leafs in the rear.

ZJ are same diameter front and rear.

WJ uses larger diameter in the rear but the post hole is larger than the TJ coils (for stock, not the case in aftermarket usually).

XJ, ZJ, and WJ coils are longer than TJ (ie a stock XJ coil will lift a TJ ~1").

HTH.

You want to use Zj springs from a V8 as they will give you I think 2" of lift or there abouts, this if for the front only. As far as Ride Quality go's, its a jeep not a Lexus, so get over it.

you take your springs from the front of YOUR jeep and jam them in the back... or get some coil spacers
