Its hard to explain. I used a donor shock as a guide for a busing. Pushed the bushing from donor shock enough so the lip is inside the shock opening. Connected two shocks so the openings align. and pushed the bushing from one shock to another.
Just to add my 2cents. I have rear springs from JLU Rubicon, fronts from Diesel Rubicon, fox shocks from JT rubicon, Longer control arms from mopar lift, AEV 2" spacer lift and 315 KO2 tires. I have a great plush ride, it drives straight at any speed and its amazing off road. I did a lot of Moab...
As mentioned above, front springs and shocks work. Rear springs don't and rear shocks should work with minor modifications. I have fox shocks from JT Rubicon on my JLU
Edit: Typed JL Rubicon instead of JT
Check ebay. I bought a full set of tan leather rubicon seats delivered for about 900, and sold my front cloth sport seats for ~450. So for about 450 I upgraded to a heated leather seats. And its MUCH easier to unbolt old seats and bolt in new ones compared to changing seat covers.
Sorry, I meant ride wise or off-road capability. Was there a notable difference?
Like I said above I have AEV 2” spacer lift and its great of and on road. I can add longer shocks and I will have more than enough articulation with 315 tires.
I did the same with my 2L but with slightly heavier wheels. I would agree with about 1mpg lost, but my shifting did not change. I see 8 all the time and it only downshifts on noticeable uphill. Did you reprogram your tire size?
