Suspension on Willys is the Rubicon suspension. Anytime Jeep takes the wheels and tires from the Rubi and puts them on a sport or Sahara as part of a special edition the suspension will be part of the package.
I know this may sound like a newbie question from someone who's been around Jeeps for awhile, but aside from the axles, what is the difference between the Rubicon "performance" suspension and the standard suspension in the other models? I know the shocks are different, but what is the difference and how is the performance gain defined? Are the springs different as well? I have just never seen (unless I didn't look hard enough) the differences explicitly spelled out.
That is one of the things that makes the Willys package so attractive to me - you get some of those Rubicon goodies, but it is not a huge difference in price over a Sport S.
