TJ 4 link suspension in a Samurai??

My buddy hates the ride on his built sammy up front. He wants to ditch the leaves and go to coils just on the front with a TJ 4 link suspension with long arms. His plans are to pretty much copy the setup in my TJ and adapt it to a Sammy. Yes I already told him to give it up and buy a TJ but he won't listen lol.

I gave him my stock coils but I feel the 6 cyl TJ springs might be too much for the sammy to handle. Would 4 cyl TJ springs be a safer bet? He's really good with welding and fab skills but I think he's lost on what coils to use. He's got a heavy bumper fabbed up front with a 8274 Warn winch.

What are the lengths and spring rates of the TJ coils?

Any other coils he should be considering?

If he copies lengths and widths for a tj, nothing will fit. I suggest a samurai forum for advice.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

I realize that. Actually he found a good forum for it. Turns out this is a common mod. Hes just trying to figure out spring rates on the different stock tj coils now.
