canadian suspension question

do the stock Canadian spec have different springs than the US spec? I parked next to another ZJ with the same size tires and I sat higher.... I have no lift installed yet which I came to the conclusion neither did this other jeep since I was taller... and then I see other ZJs in town and I sit higher than all of them... if I have the up country how do I tell visually?

u mm, ur in nevada? why the canadian question?

they are all the same.

upcountry? you should have stickers or something. check for blue shocks. that will also let you know.. also, you'd have gas tank/tcase/engine skids and front towhooks.

maybe your jeep is just cooler and the ones you['ve parked by are i6 jeeps? or have sagged springs?

lol yup in Nevada but got the sticker under the hood that says canadian and had day time running lights. and I think they might have been i6 lol even my buddies i6 on 30" mtr(they run like 30.5) next to mine with 31" A/T my door handles are much higher and I even have more clearance and a bigger gap in the wheel wells

96-later is several hundred pounds heavier yet there seems to be no change to the springs. Towing package will also raise the rear a half inch or so but doesn't have a sticker to announce it. Meaning a tow package 95 is going to look like an upcountry parked next to the average 97.

Between tread depth and variation between manufacturers, "same size" tires can be an inch different.
