JK Rubi springs to JKU Rubi prings

Sorry guys, I thought I saved the thread, but I didn't. I searched via the Search feature and just went through the last 15 pages and I can't find the thread.

Someone posted the steps taken to swap springs. It was very quick and to the point. Could someone break it down for me?

This thread should answer your questions. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f96/w...t+installation
It's a farely easy project. Just take your time and pay attention to the brake lines and wires when you lower the axles. Removing the lower track-bar bolt the sway-bar links and the and the lower shock bolts makes it very easy to lower the axle enough to swap the springs.
Check out that thread and if you have any more questions feel free to ask them here.
Good luck.

Thank you, Brother. I never thought of "Swapping Springs" in the search box.

Make sure you torque all the fasteners to spec with a quality torque wrench. Improperly tightened track bar bolts will lead to death wobble.

Thanks


Here's a question/afterthought: Will my Rubi Shocks be ok, or should I look for JKU Rubi shocks?

I think the shocks are identical.

Awesome. I kept going back and forth in my head why they would or wouldn't be the same.
