Removing Coil Over Lift ??

Hey all, I have owned several Grand Cherokees but I am getting ready to purchase my first Wrangler. It is a 1995 YJ, 4.0, with a few things done to it already.

My question is this ... If I want to use the Jeep to drive on-road as well as off-road, should I be worried about the coil over lift? I have heard conflicting stories and figured that someone on here could set me straight.

Here is a list of what has been done to the Jeep so far ...

5 Inch Pro Comp Coilover Lift
35 12.50 General Mud Grabbers
Centerline Hellcat rims
Slotted rotors
Detroit Lockers front and rear
Strange 31 spline axles with 4:11 gears
SYE Kit with aftermarket driveshaft
New U-joints
Jet Computer Chip
Custom Intake
Jacobs Ignition system
Borla header and Borla cat back exhaust

Please let me know your thoughts. Again, I am new to Wranglers.

Thanks !!!

Adding coils or coil-overs would be an upgrade to the stock suspension if set up right. I assume its the 5" pro-comp coil suspension lift not coil-overs, not that it really matters.

If its just hacked together it may be a liability, but if they did it right it would be a "nicer" setup than leafs. IMHO.

Are you sure it's a 95?

The strange 31 spline axle is hopefully an 8.8.

If I were to be buying that YJ with the ProComp Coil Conversion kit, I'd remove the entire kit & either sell it to somebody who knows the history & real world manners of that kit, or toss it in the nearest dumpster/recycle bin.
