Xj Lift Questions

I'm sure this has been asked 1000 times and i've looked around on this site some. I'd like to ask anyways tho for a straight answer... Zj front springs give 1 inch lift when installed on a XJ? If so does it matter which engine? I read somewhere the 4.0 ZJ gives 1 inch lift but softer spring rate than the V8, then read elsewhere that only the v8 springs give any lift, or the country springs ect... In the end will the 4.0 ZJ springs give any lift to a 4.0 XJ 1996 4x4.

Also how much lift is the stock track bar good for?


Thanks so much for any info.

Maybe, and maybe not. As you have read, it depends on the donor.

An easier and more reliable lift method is to buy lift coil springs, or lift coil spring spacers. You will end up with the expected amount of lift. IMO used coil springs are not much cheaper than new coil springs, and you run the of risk wasting the time and effort for an unknown lift height, or maybe no lift at all.

After about 2" of lift you should do something with the track bar, either re-drill the mounting hole, or get an adjustable one.
