Coil Springs

Right now I have a terraflex 2.5in budget boost lift with fox 2.0s. I finally have the money to replace the spring spacer with a full size spring! Any suggestions?? I heard terraflex springs tend to sag over time... Lets hear opinions!

We have had 2.5" TF springs in my daughters Jeep for a couple years and they have been fine. I have Rock Krawler spring up front on my JKU and they are good too.

Miami4x4 but that was some time ago. Marcus at River City Offroad in Austin can set you up.

There's a RK rep who's a regular member. I'd wager that you'll get a PM or a comment in this thread, from him, by the end of the day.

Could give Jason at Krawloff-road a shout as well. He carries RK and usually has great shipping.

I have RK Springs. My ride is kind of stiff but I think it has more to do with their shocks than anything. I do have the JK lean going on in the rear but that also seems to be a pretty normal problem. My JKUR is pretty heavy and the springs have held the weight really well overall.

To reinforce the point: unless you have springs that are iron bars, "stiff" ride is 90% shocks and the rest is tire pressure.

We carry RK at some of the best prices out there. I would recommend them over most springs out there. I have them on my TJ and absolutely love them. They ride great on and off road, and since you're running fox shocks, I know you won't be disappointed with these springs.

Shoot me a PM and I'll hook you up with our discount code for Jeepforum Members!

Find out what your corners weigh and then buy coils that are built to handle your weight and desired lift height. Then buy shocks that are valved for the main type of driving you will be doing.
