JKU Spring Lift Question

I have a 2014 2 door Rubicon with a spring combo of 14's in the front and 57's in the rear. I just got a set of 18's and 59's and red Rubicon shocks form a 2016 JKU. They look like new. How much lift will I get with there? Will that be enough to run 33's without problems?

Your not going to see much from going two sizes bigger in coils but you should be able to run 33's with proper wheel backspacing. You may need a little bump stop to prevent rubbing the fender at full flex when the swaybar is disconnected.

Some build info here:

you may see .25" to .50" height increase before they settle. Firmness will be more noticeable than height , accentuated by the shock selection ,of course. You will be able to bear a bit more weight with that setup is the gain. Just trim fenders for room for tire size increase.

You don't need really anything more than bumpstop as thedirtman said to run 33s..that is only a wee bit greater diameter than the stock 32s . Should be plenty of threads on here to help you.
