Rubicon springs & shocks on 97???

Situation:

Friend A) Buys new Rubicon and puts lift kit on it, leaving behind coil springs and shocks with less than 400 miles on them.

Friend B) Has 97 TJ SE with sagging coils and original shocks (~98K miles).

Can we just swap in the Rubicon coils and shocks to the 97? It looks like it would work but I would hate to pull it all apart and have them not fit.

I don't believe the springs are any different, the shocks are supposed to be a little stiffer. The way they fit the larger tires on the Rubi was by adjusting the stops, from what I've read there is no physical lift on the Rubi other than tires.

Sitting there with the Rubi springs was a set of '00 sport springs the diameter of the metal itself was substanial and the coil was about 1 inch taller...this may have been due to sag in the '00...but we think it is likely to lift the '97 some.
