Junk yard springs for coil over lift

Off topic but first time thread.
My question is from my understanding that a coil over lift is replacing the springs on the vehical for longer larger ones and also replacing the shocks because the length has changed. It's expensive buying the kit so, is it possible to find used springs at a junk yard that are larger to give the lift desired. I'd buy the shocks to make sure there in good shape. If it matters I drive the 03 Liberty (Yes, like many others the Liberty was the fine choice of the wife) Thanks.

A coil over is a set up were the shock and the spring are together . you are thinking of a coil spring lift dont know about the libertys but with a xj you can gain a little with the v8 grand springs may work for the kj or you could do spacers like these

Coil-over:


Coil Springs:


No offense, but you need to do some more research to know wtf you're talking about and what you're looking for. Coil-overs are strictly reserved for those experienced with extensive welding and fabrication and are usually used in hardcore off-road competition. Coil springs are what comes on your Jeep and most vehicles these days.

to do a coilover conversion on a kj would take huge amounts of work. best way to achieve a small lift is to just get a spacer lift.

I had thought about getting the poly spacer lift. Thanks all for those who helped. No offense though that sometimes the research comes from forums like this, to those who have had more experience.
