Stock Front Coil springs on my 6 in lift? Not cool....

So it came to my attention my newly acquired jeep has a 6 in superlift and the front coil springs are still stock, which is making the front more like a 4 in lift...

can i put any coil spring along with my superlift? For example online i find a lot of skyjacker products, will there coil springs work?

the front just seems low to me to be a 6" lift.. my friend put on a 4.5" and even though he has 31s he seems to have a LOT more room than me

Those are not stock coils if you have anywhere close to 4" of lift. You likely have 3" or 4" coils and 1.75" or 2" spacers. Measure his jeep from a point of the frame rail to the top of the axle tube and measure yours the same way and see how much difference there is. It appears by the picture that you have at least 5" of lift if those are 33" tires. You need to cut and fold that pinch seam under your front fenderwells before doing a lot of flexing. It will cut your tires up if left like it is.

Stock coil on the left, your coil is thicker and has a lot more winds in it. Tell your friend to try harder next time.
