Thank you really appreciate it. BTW you have one nice Jeep.
Can you please also post one pic of back of the Jeep? I can't see if you have a tire carrier in the back or what else you have there on the tail.

Full size tire carrier and a full size matching spare...."swampers aint a light tire either".

Also built a box in entire rear of the tub that hold around 500 pounds of tools, axle shaft , and several other parts.





Also pull a trailer to different wheeling spots from time to time... Loaded trailer weights in at 800 to 1600 pounds depending on if I take the big tool box or the little ones. The rear LJ springs don't complain a bit with the weight of the trailer or the hardtop. With gear in the back of the tub.


Wars may come and go, but my soldiers remain Eternal.

It's nice being just down the road from DPGoffroad.

Now a 99 SAHARICON!!!!

With the additions added to my jeep "heavy bumpers /gear in back" it rides nice and smooth. I don't get jarred around when hitting a bump or pot hole either. But shock choice also helps with that.

With a stock body jeep..."no heavy add on's" It will be a bit stiff. The springs are designed to hold a larger weight.

Coil rates differ with every companies coils. To select the best for everyone is impossible. To help choose what area of coil rate you need for "x" jeep depends on several things. Mainly what the weight of the jeep will be in the end. Front and rear are also different from each other in rate of weight.

The ride is awesome with this setup. I really like it. With Warn 9.5ti sitting upfront the front is lower by 3/4" compare to rear. I am really happy the way it looks and drive. I was afraid the rear springs will be too hard but they are perfect with my tire carrier and the gas tank skid along with rear seat to add weight.

Pics. coming soon...................

I like it, and you say the ride is good... Compared to stock: softer, firmer, about the same?

Also, what is your exact tire size? (your profile just says 33s -- not sure if that is actual 33x12.50s or metric 285/75.)

It would not be fare to compare to stock ride because lot has changed not just springs. In simple words it is better than stock even with lift. It is firmer but not harsh like stock. Lot also depends on tires I went from stock E rated MTRs to BFG 33/12.5/15 that are C rated tires. C rated tires are more suited for the weight of any Jeep. E rated tires are for diseil trucks.

If you are planning on building yor Jeep eventually I would go with ZJ/LJ springs. If you go with ZJ/LJ springs at minimum a winch in the fron and tire carrier in the back are a must at some point if not right away. I don't like the ride on HD springs with weight on but it drives great with stock Jeep. So if you are not going to do any heavy mods I would go with HD springs.

Keep in mind I was not going to do any thing but a small lift and 33s six months ago and here I am with all these mods on my Jeep.

OME ZJ/LJ lift ...just recently got my HD rockhard 4x4 bumper - no sag at all.
Soon to be front bumper & winch.

This lift gave me about 3.5'' lift compared to the 2.5'' OME i was looking at.
I am about 260lbs and I can stand on the front bumper and jump. The suspension doesn't dip a lot.

Stock 2003 Jeep TJ - 'Intense Blue'
Bought the jeep in April, found JF in May...
First Mod in June.

Does anyone have some OME-934 springs they'd like to sell? Sorry to bump an old thread but I'm desperate for a deal on some good used ones. I have 933's for trade if anyone's interested (might be if you have a TJ and want a softer ride).
