I'm looking to put Rubi coils in my stock TJ. Is there an advantage over stock Sport springs?

They have a higher spring rate.

Are you wanting to add them for height/lift?

It would be nominal at best. If your front end is sagging from your winch you might consider some 3/4" spacers.

Already got 1.5" spacers up front and nothing in the back. Just want a better rate spring.

Are your front springs sagging? How heavy is your front bumper? Do you have a rear tire carrier or anything heavy on the back?

Nothing on the back, just a winch on the front. I installed spacers over the weekend and it sit somewhat level now but the stock springs suck. I thought Rubi springs would be better, but I'll pass on putting them in if its not benificial.

Thats what I was thinking. I'm running 32's with no lift other then the 1.5 spacer up front.

If the Rubi springs are in better shape than your springs then throw em on. It would at least give you a better set of springs.

I'd say in your instance here they will probably do exactly what you want. Old sagging springs on a 97 or so TJ are reaching the point where they are getting tired especially with the weight that we put on them with winches and those big ass ARB Bumpers that Scout used to think were cool. :D

This instance I agree it would not be a waste of time for you to do this.
