WJ springs on a JK?

So I have a set of 3" lift springs for a WJ (I went to 4").

My friend has a stock 2 door JK and is starting to talk about lifting it (I think, in part, due to me strategically parking my WJ next to his stock JK for a while). And I was wondering if the WJ springs could somehow fit into the JK?

I've only looked at the rear of the JK, and it looks like the bottom of the springs are the same size, but the top of the JK spring is a bit wider than the top of the WJ spring. It looks like if we were to cut half a coil out the the WJ spring, that it would be about the same size as the the JK spring.

No idea how the front springs compare.


But I was just wondering, has anyone done this? Would it be worth the effort? Should he just get a set of coils or spacers and call it good?

He only wants to go up about 2-3" on his JK.

More than likely not. The WJ is way heavier so the spring rate will be different between the two rigs.. Better off buying JK coils

Simple answer is they won't fit, the coil wraps on the top and bottom are different. The 3" lift coils from a WJ wouldn't equal 3" of lift on a JK either because the springs are longer on the JK.
