You say you lost articulation with the rubicon springs. Which springs do you have? Example my 2 door rubicon softtop came with "14/56" springs Are they 4 door rubicon springs? The 2 door rubicons came with almost the same spec springs as the sports normally (sports often have "13/54" or "14/55" springs. The rubicon fronts shocks are the same except gas vs hydro. The rear rubicon shocks are about 1" longer than the sports.
