Will TJ coils fit on A ZJ?

I have 2 inch coils right now on my ZJ. There is a set of 3.5 inch TJ coils on craislist wondering if they would fit?

i think theyll go on the front...but im not sure about the back. some guy used v8 tj coils on the front of his tj...hes trying to sell them now...but i think the tj rear springs are a lot bigger diameter wise.

to get higher than you are will require alot of money . I'm going from 4.5 to 7" , for an additional cost of almost $2000 not including bigger tires , I already have frt LA"S .

Sure you want to go there ?

I'd just get some new 4.5 springs and ditch the spacers

How much lift will 4.5" TJ coils give on an inline 6 ZJ?

It should give you 4.5" cause the motor weighs the same. I hate having tj coils under my 5.2 Zj. The ride is stiff as hell and the coils bounce off the front bumpstops.

The tj is a lot lighter than the zj, you lose 1.5 –2" of lift under a zj.

It feels stiffer because the coils are nearly sitting on top of eachother.
