What kind of suspension is in the Rubicon Hard rock..?
I think Pat said the springs are stiffer?? does anyone know exactly how much stiffer,, like the #s? and what shocks are used?
Pat posted "Stiffer springs in the front"
Here is something I posted up early and my experience:
"Funny thing about the springs, my 2014 JKUX sat at the exact same height as my buddies 10A. I have 19/61 springs and I believe his were the 006/009."
From the reading I did, the first 10A's came with a different number system on the springs than any other JK, your typical JK range for front was anywhere from like 13-19 and rear 55-60, depending on 2-door or 4-door, sport vs sahara vs rubi, tow package, hard top, etc...the higher the number the stiffer/taller the spring. People tried to make sense of the 10A spring numbers but just as they did even those numbers changed, some 10A owners were getting the 006 springs in the front and springs that had more of the traditional numbering style on the back but they were a 61(which I got on a 2014 JKURX)
So with Pat's statement I am going to guess the 1/2 inch of lift is just a stiffer spring on the front that can add a 1/2in of lift. I say "can" because before modding my JKURX I compared it to a very similar equipped 10A JKU and the heights were almost exactly the same front and back. Only difference being the 10A had about 5k miles on it and some say they notice some settling by that point.
So to answer your question with my best guess the HRR should have your standard rubicon shocks with the stiffest/tallest spring they are making on the rear and a "special" HRR/10A only spring on the front. Nobody will really know until they hit dealers/owners and people can look at the numbers.
