want easy way to can do it in my country

am from egypt and have yj 87

I drive the car for long distances on Non-asphalted, unpaved rood..

how can make car more comfortable and smoother ??

I also question about coil spring conversion ..

I read about ProComp but its too expensive.. it's "starting " at $2500 not including mounts or options.

$2500 = 17 500 Egyptian pounds without shipping, installation and taxes

so, is there another way to convert the leafs to coil springs

I apologize for my English weakness

Remove trac bars and sway bar. Stay away from huge tires, go with 225 0r 235 as max size, and run 22 to 24 PSI max.

You are better off selling yours and buying a later Wrangler that already has coils if you believe they will help in your situation.

On the standard leaf springs and without the trac bars and sway bar, my YJ rides pretty well.

Like everyone else said, ditch the track and sway bars. Upgrade your suspension if its stock, anything 20+years old is going to show signs of wear.

I found that larger tires at the right psi smoothed it out too

Old man emu is a company that makes springs that ride so smoothly. I think it would cost a lot to mail them to you though. Just unbolt the track bars and you will have a much better ride. That is the first mod to do to any jeep from 1987 to 1995. Makes the ride like a car

An emu is a big bird, like an ostrich.

The track bar keeps the axle centered on vehicles that use coils springs for suspension. Since our jeeps use leaf springs, you don't need track bars. You, my friend, will be able to understand why easily, because of your job.

When you have a fixed end of a rod (track bar) and the other end is moving, it only makes an arc that is equidistance from the center fixed end. Well, your track bar makes that little arc when hit a bump but the leaf springs only move up and down, not side to side, so the trac bar and the leaf springs are always fighting each other because they move in different planes.
