I am willing to be the guinea pig for those that don't want lift, but have to wait for Chrysler to fix the vibration. The quickest way to slam the case door shut in my face would be to install aftermarket lift springs....

Heck I would need my Jeep as well... I haven't seen her in a week.. Heck, I've only had her about 3 weeks in the past two months...
Know the one you drove very well, be under/over/front/back/on top well been over every inch of it there is at my place.
As far as being the guinea pig many have done the 926 springs in front, they are rated at 375 lb compared to the 927s which are 400 lb, little less lift, not as firm but still a upgrade over the stock 310 lb ones

He He He... That's what I've been thinking... The 926's are the Medium Duty, so I would get the 730 Medium rears as well, right.

I did have a question, I see a light duty 925 listed as well.... are they just to soft like the stock spring rate?

If I remember correctly(been a while since I looked at the OME page) 925s are stock spring rates.

As for the rears, the 731s might still be better. They're rather light springs for "heavy duty".

Also, Ironman gets less lift. That might be another option. You'll get about 2.25" instead of 2.5. Only problem is that they don't make rear springs(for the KK atleast). You'll have to run OME's or JBA's.

OME front spring rate's
925s-350 lb
926s-375 lb
927s-400 lbs
790s-500 lbs

So yes the 925s will give you 40 more lbs over stock
