Suspension question:

The Rubicon suspension I got came with Shocks (already had - these are extras), Springs and the following stuff.

If I'm correct all this stuff is the same as on the sport / willy's and therefore not needed (or trash). Shocks (always good to have extras), springs needed, Mopar LCAs (need to purchase before the springs go on, and the stuff above can be pitched....

Thank you

Mostly yes. Lots of people will save it and use a back up in case of trail damage. I pitched mine.

Pretty much. Everything on a Willys is the same as a Rubicon except the springs. I, too, paid for a bunch of stuff I didn't install, because it was identical to what I already had. It is what it is, I guess.

Thanks, It's not a money issue (the gout i got it from only wanted 25.00$ for the shock, springs and the rest of the stuff). The factory LCAs, tie rod ends, bumpstops etc will be pitched as I don't want to turn the garage in to a used parts warehouse.

I think you meant Everything on a Willy's is the same as a sport except the shocks (which are rubi shocks).

I was referring to the pile of parts depicted earlier in the thread. Track bars, bump stops, lower control arms, sway bar links, spring isolators. Those parts are common to all JLs, including the Rubicon. I'm pretty sure even the spring isolators are the same. The factory springs are set up to fit on those isolators, no matter which springs they are.

So I meant what I said. To put a "Rubicon takeoff lift" onto a Willys, you just need to change the springs. Replacing the front lower control arms with longer ones is highly advisable, but Rubicon and Sport factory control arms are identical, so you can't achieve this by using the Rubicon LCAs. I used the longer LCAs from the Mopar lift, as have many others.

(I'm still using those LCAs now that I have a proper lift on my Jeep. My steering response is great, and I see no need to switch to adjustable LCAs.)

ahh.. makes sense. I was trying to say the same thing. Will be purchasing the longer LCAs from the Mopar lift, when it's time to change the springs.

thanks
