    Hello, bought some JLU Rubicon springs off a fellow member and wanted to confirm the correct sides. I have searched and believe the higher spring number goes on the passenger side but one of the front spring numbers (68253662AC) I have not seen mentioned online. The 2019 JLU Rubicon these came off of was optioned with: tow package, steel bumpers and dual top.

    Rear springs numbers:

    68253592AA (passenger side?)
    68253591AA (driver side?)



    Front spring numbers:

    68253662AC (passenger side?)
    68253661AC (driver side?)



    Thanks!

    It depends on the build code because it could be either or. So if it’s “ZBY” it could be left rear or if it’s “ZPY” it could be right rear for part number 68253591AA which is rear spring


    Edit: ignore this look above ^^^

    You got the best spring numbers. I bought takeoffs from a Rubicon with all of the options but only got 60/61 in the front. I think Jeep revised the springs on newer JLs. What’s the build date of the Jeep that you bought parts from? The date should be on a white paper sticker on the shocks.

    Larger number goes on the passenger side. So 61FL/62FR and 91RL/92RR for your springs.

    what he said, I got 60/62 front and 91/92 rear, but yes 61/62 front would have been ideal.

    I appreciate all the input. Got them on, higher spring part numbers on the passenger side. I’ll post pics later.

    Before specs:

    Passenger front 35-1/4
    Driver front 35-1/2
    Passenger rear 36-1/4
    Driver rear 36-1/4

    After specs:
    Passenger front 37-1/2
    Driver front 37-1/2
    Passenger rear 38
    Driver rear 38

    I expect the height to come down a little once I drive and the suspension settles. I had only driven a few miles before checking post install measurements. I had a full tank of fuel for all measurements. And my tape measure readings maybe not be absolutely on but they are very close to what I stated above. And the measurements were from the ground to the bottom of the fender.

    Once I drive it more, I can give my impression on ride and what the measurements end up after settling. I had hoped to retain the approximate 1” rake and maybe when it settles it will have a little more. But I’m happy with the initial results....

    This tag says date 2-18-2019 so assuming that’s the build date....

    Best I can do right now for an after pic. At a Fourth of July celebration.... I guess I’ll go up to a 33” tire when these wear out to fill the wheel well gap better...
