coil spring rate

I'm looking for the spring rate of stock TJ and XJ coil springs. A friend of mine with a zuk is looking to change out his QA1 springs for something else and we were thinking that with the tops of these springs set up for the bump stops they would work out good. We could set it up so that the spring could droop away from the bucket and still be held in line by a bump stop. I've not been able to find any of this info anywhere, any info would be appreciated.

Re: coil spring rate

For the TJ, 120's are standard, 160's are the upgrade (HD). XJ's are 120, MJ (Comanche pickup) is 140, ZJ (Grand) are 200 front and 160 rear.

Re: coil spring rate

btw those are pretty darn soft. He's running 150's all around and is thinking stiffer up front, and that's on a zuk. thanks again.
