Pay it Forward:Rubicon Shocks and Coils

Off a 2010 Rubicon, good for budget lift. Anybody in the lower mainland want them? Or any where en route from Vancouver to Fort Mac. (I am driving back Monday)
PM me if you want them.

Yes, you get a measurable increase with the Rubicon springs and shocks. I got about an inch and a half in the back, and a bit less in the front when I did that.

That's enough to make a difference, I'm not hitting the skid plates as much.

From what I read the rubis dont actually have a diff set of springs.

BUT there are like a bunch of diffenent spring numbers that could be on any of the JK just depending on options and such.

So I would check your part numbers vs others before you plan a swap.

I believe the main difference is the compression. Rubicon coils have less 'settlement' under load. I thought they were longer.

your best resluts will be a springs from a 4dr rubi with a tow package going on a 2dr. 4dr to 4dr... wouldn't bet on much... The front rubi springs will be a bit stronger the sahra's to deal with the weight of the sway bar motor but other then that it's going to change the ride more then the hight... could be used for leveling a 4dr sahara though.
