You can do a comparison of how long it took me vs you That F_ing hurt
Thanks for the springs.

2000-2006 Ford taurus springs, 142lb/in vs the 125lb/in springs from front 4cylinder TJ. Sits within 1/4" of the TJ springs but with a higher rate. They still might be too soft though. Have to find some bumps to figure it out.

Those are probably the next step. Being a variable spring though I don't if I can calculate the ride height on them like a constant spring. I guess I need to find some GC rear springs to try also.

Tj 4 cylinder fronts sit at 11" @ 125lb/in
Ford Taurus 00-06 springs sit at 10.93" @ 142lb/in
Ford Taurus 96-99 springs sit at 10.71" @ 169lb/in
Grand Cherokee springs(variable so guessing) will sit around 10.64" @ 182lb/in

640lb corner weight in the rear.

Just do coil overs. It's not like it will take you 3.5 years to do

nice job Brandon


its great to see it all come together in the end -

ok, i know there is no real "end" but, just saying - after a while its more fun to test, tune, and fix vs. sketch, cut, and burn.

Looking Good

Love how much head room you have with the cage tie ins.

How much did you stretch it forward and rearward?

Thanks Brian. I haven't touched it since I swapped the rear springs out and changed fluids in the diffs. I'm just going to do minimal prep work and head up for Collin's Benefit on saturday. Hope to see you up there.

Thanks, Can't remember how far stretched it is front and back. More back than front though
