You got the stock springs and shocks off a Rubicon JLU and you got 1.75 in the front and 2.0 in the rear? Do you remember or have the part numbers you used from the Rubicon? Could you check if they are these numbers?

Yes I believe that was them, or one below those like 89/90 rear and 58/59 front.

Was a loaded JLU rubicon hardtop/tow etc but did not have steel bumpers if that helps

Im looking at using the springs that I have listed and putting them on my 2d sport with the teraflex 2d 1.5 in lift. The teraflex is only 1.0 in the front and 1.5 in the back.. So based on your numbers, that would/should put me at the 2.75 for the front and 3.5 for the rear.
I will remove the 2.5 lift spacers I have now when I make this change.

Teraflex should come in next week, so with some traveling plans, I will look forward to installing everything the week of the 25th 26th... I will report on your thread (sorry) the results... Thanks for installing the lift and giving me your numbers... Helped alot!

Great looking build!
Did you notice any steering issues after adding Rubi springs, that's my only concern w/ adding those to my Sport S.
Thanks, and cool DIY stuff you've added, nice work!

Nope no steering issues, i mean its not great to begin with but it didn’t make it any worse.

With the lower control arms being longer and the stiffer springs, it honestly drove better with the 35s than the stock suspension.

Im in the middle of possibly adding a real lift to it, still just can’t decide though

What is your rpm when cruising at 70 mph and 75 mph (6th gear)? I recently upgraded to 34" tires and they got me realized the need to regear if I want to go to 35" in the future. I am not sure if 4.10 would put me back to "3.45+OEM tires" feeling.
