Upcountry suspension upgrade

Just got the rear upcountry springs installed, along with new coil spring isolators. The front will get done in the next week or so (still waiting for my last 2 coil isolators to show up).

My BEFORE measurements from wheel hub to fender were 18.25" in the back and 17.75" in the front.

AFTER measurement in the rear is now 20.00". Really happy with the ride and results so far. Makes me wonder why all WJs didn't come with this setup stock.

I got the upcountry springs and shocks from a guy here on the forum in the classifieds. FYI, I have a set of the upcountry shocks in case your looking for those.

Kolak can get them. These are the next upgrade to my WJ along with the Addco bars.

I bought mine on eBay. You just need to know the front and rear spring part #'s which can be had on the WJJeeps.com.

Just a quick update. Got the front upcountry springs put in tonight (along with tranny filter/fluid , spark plugs, and fuel filter....was a productive day). Anyways, here's the result. Front is now at 19.25 inches fender to center of the hub.
