Rubi shocks when changing to rubi springs?

I scored a set of unlimited rubi springs (xxx-17 and xxx-18) on ebay for $100 and expect they will likely be stiffer than the #12 and #13 I'm removing (each number higher corresponds to an extra half twist of the coil, with corresponding height increase). As the higher spring rate will mean my 2 door will sit less into the spring range than the old set, I'm anticipating the typical slight height increase.

So now that the springs are different, do I need to swap out the old shocks for new? I have the sahara tow package, which I think means I have gas shocks, at least in the rear. Will the stiffer springs overpower the shocks now? Maybe I should wait and see? Any thoughts folks?

I think you'll be fine, but that is just opinion only.
