ZJ 6" Coils

I have searched and searched all over the internet and can't find 6" coil springs, not even 6.5" springs. Just 5.5" and 7" everywhere. Can someone please point me in the right direction? Thank you.

I think Rusty's Offroad has them.

At any rate, if you cannot find them that way get XJ coils for the lift you want and add 1" spacers. The spring size for the rear on a ZJ is the same diameter as the front spring.

Rustys has 5.5'' springs for the ZJ.


This has been covered before though, no 6'' coils for the ZJ (at least right now).

5.5" might measure up to 6". I mean, they will shrink a little bit but does it have to be .5" taller?

Maybe to some.....In time, the springs do settle.

YES! Maybe I'll run 5.5" with my one inch spacer. I'd rather be a .5" higher then a .5" shorter.

I don't maybe, I think 7" might look funny with 35's and trimmed fenders. I'm not getting the 37's, way to much money to do that

It hasn't been mentioned....but you do intend to switch to long arms, right?
There is no way you can go that high on short arms. And at that hieght, you better plan on a tcase drop and drve shafts (aint no way stock is gonna work that tall).

My point is, you are at your lift limit with what you have now. Going up to 7" (or 6.5-8") is going to take more than a just a set of coils....
