Jeep WJ-suspension questions

Hi all,
I've been debating whether or not to lift my jeep wj. Honestly I will probably never do anything serious off-road with it, so it almost doesn't make any sense to lift it; right?

And say I didn't lift it-I still think it needs some new shocks. Bilstein HDs or Ranchos?

Re: Jeep WJ-suspension questions

You could just level it. Better stance, slightly bigger tires with no ride quality changes.

Haven't tried them but the Bilsteins seem to be pretty popular with those that have tried them.

Re: Jeep WJ-suspension questions

honestly, i would go the following route.... if you dont have an overland- id get some overland springs, and some bilstein hds. throw a addco rear swaybar on it and youll have an amazing ride. i researched this set up for months before i bought the parts for my wj- and then put my wj in a wall before i put the parts on. lol.

the bilsteins and the overland coils will probably next you close to an inch of lift. i know KOF makes some .75" coil spacers

Where would I get Overland coils? Are those the OEM Upcountry coils?
