10AE Spring Questions

Question 1: Did the 10th Anniversary Rubicon Unlimited have unique front and rear springs?

Question 2: If yes, are they stronger than the 19/61 combination that currently seems to be the strongest offered on any other Wrangler?

Question 3: If yes, can someone kindly post the complete Mopar Part Numbers for the 10AE front and rear springs?

Thank you!

Re: 10AE Spring Questions

Well, since no one else responded....


The springs are chosen at the factory based on the weight of the particular Wrangler, including all its options. Apparently, for the 10A, they included the weight of the steel bumpers, while the later Rubicon X and Hard Rocks, did not.


Anyway, for just one example, if you have a Wrangler with the factory hard top, it will have stronger springs to handle that extra weight. Remove that hard top, and yes, that Wrangler will now sit a bit higher due to that loss of weight.


So, swapping in springs that were meant for a heavier Wrangler, will give your lighter Wrangler a bit of a lift.

Question 1: Did the 10th Anniversary Rubicon Unlimited have unique front and rear springs?


Yes, the numbers were specific to the 10A, although soft top and 2 door Jeeps occasionally got Rubicon springs instead.



Question 2: If yes, are they stronger than the 19/61 combination that currently seems to be the strongest offered on any other Wrangler?


Possibly. I swapped out my 18/59 springs for 10A springs and got about 1" in front and 1.5" in rear - however, the 10A springs do settle, so now I'm down some again. They should still be at least one step up from 19/61 though if not a bit more.


Question 3: If yes, can someone kindly post the complete Mopar Part Numbers for the 10AE front and rear springs?

The ones I bought were from a hard top with tow package, these -
68196006AA - front
68196009AA - rear

These were under on a 4 door soft top 10A
68196005AA - front
68024461AA - rear
