Probably been asked before....JK Springs and Shocks Upgrade from Sport

I am going to buy some shocks and springs off a 2012 Rubicon (part #'s below). Will I notice any difference in the ride quality with the rubi shocks? I have a 2011 wrangler sport right now.

front coils sticker says: 5212 6318AC
rear coil sticker says: 6800 4459AA

front shock sticker says: 186AC
rear shock sticker says: 188AC


Also, will I sacrifice anything (safety, handleing etc...) with the new taller springs?

Will I still be covered under warranty? Thanks in advance for all the advice.

You should gain 1 or 2" with the JKU springs. I changed my shocks to the Rubi shocks because I got them with my JKU springs. I didn't notice any change in ride. You should not have any problems with warranty they are OEM parts.

Important question - four door rear springs are a higher rate!

The Jeep wave - it means nothing. Now I look for the RearView wave. Anyone can cause a guy to readjust his rear view at night. But in the daytime when you roll up behind someone and they adjust their mirror to frame your Jeep straighter - THAT'S a compliment!
