I don't have a lift on my 97 zj but would like to lift it. I work at a salvage yard with tons of parts. Will other grand Cherokee coil springs or other parts off other vehicles work on mine to lift it higher. Im just trying to go cheap and I'm all around parts and I thought for sure something off of some kind of vehicle would fit mine to lift it higher than having to spend a load on a lift

If u work there an Alot of jeeps come threw n e of them lifted. Whatever u wanna swap google the year of it an see of it will fit. But if u get longer springs an shocks ur gonna have to cut your fenders possibly control arms. I'd suggest heavy duty sway bar links or quick disconnect I've gone threw a few of the stock ones haven't switched over yet but I am.

Haven't had any lifted just stock but I've been reading people talk about the f2r swap. What do u think I should do? I don't really understand what to do on the front. I got where I'm supposed to move the front coil springs to the rear but what about the front and what else do I replace?
