Stock TJ Coils?

Hey ya'll, I want to do a coil conversion to my Samurai. Now, how stiff would stock TJ coils be with 30,000 miles on? Would it be a hopelessly bumpy ride? Now actually, I don't mind bumpy rides. But I am just wondering how bumpy this would make it. I like coils for the articulation. I just don't want my springs to be popping out when I'm flexing! I can get a set of 4 used coils for fairly cheap, and thought I would jump on the chance to get them, but was just wondering about the ride quality. Anything you guys suggest that might soften it up at all? Thanks in advance for the help!

Re: Stock TJ Coils?

You can get the right springs for 33 or so a piece. why get a set that will be the wrong rate? (the Tj's will be way too stiff.)
QA1 14" 150 springs from Summit racing. (they have all lenghts)

Re: Stock TJ Coils?

If you are going to go TJ coils, make sure you get the ones from a stock 4 cyl with soft top. We put a set on our TJ (came with HD 6cyl and hard top), and they flex like mad. Unfortunately they are also so soft it's like riding a greased beach ball down a ski slope. They're coming off and the old coils are going back on as it's the wife's DD.

I would also use the front coils only, as the rears are a lot wider and smaller. The fronts are tall and thin.

We'll have our set available shortly...
