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.

Is that 2012 a JKU?

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

The wagon should, of course, be as light as possible, but strength should not be sacrificed to lightness, for on any but the regularly traveled roads, the wagon will get many a hard knock...
