Ouch...

But if you search, you will find that JK springs are not a direct fit on the TJ/LJ

Rear are not.

Yes, the search function does work...however, it's good policy to answer even the most redundant questions, if for no reason other than to refresh your own knowledge. It's annoying, I know...I feel like I say something about a TPS or O2 sensor or Catalytic Converter every three seconds...but I still answer, because it helps me to remember and build my own knowledge base.

Still should have searched for it, but since you asked...

I would say "yes and no." You can make them fit if you really want to, but you can make pretty much anything fit if you try hard enough. Hell, I can make a nuclear-powered Jeep with enough time, money, governmental permission and BFH.

Fronts are direct swaps. Rears won't fit on the perches.

So..."yes" and "no." Didn't think I had to repeat the earlier post...I was just giving my take on it.

I agree thats its not a direct fit.
Don't apologize for somebody snapping at you. It's not like you called them at home during dinner or something... they willingly went to jeep forum and started looking for some questions to offer advice about.
Don't sweat it!

Seriously.

But I can't lie, sometimes I'd rather just post a new thread so I get up-to-date answers instead of old ones and you might have a question about something that was only answered halfway in a previous thread...
