Front to rear swap question

Will front 4.0 springs net 3.5" of lift? I'm looking at the IRO 3.5" kit but i'm not sure if the front coils will work. Do i need to go find v8 coils or are their any other vehicles i can get the right size coils from?

If your running the orginal 4.0 springs they are probably sagging by now and wont net you 3" (mileage dependent). the V8 are the 3.5". You can just grab some off a junked on at the junkyard for next to nothing. If you want more like 4" grab a set off a ZJ with Up Country on it.
