Take a minute to read through the Faqs on the first page. The Front to Rear lift maybe just the answer you're looking for.

"The front coil springs in a V8 ZJ Grand Cherokee are a bit longer and a bit more stiff than those in the I6 4.0L equipped ZJ Grand Cherokee. The springs from the I6 will not give you the lift you are looking for."
He has an I6 though, so if he has to hunt down those springs might as well buy all new?
