Stiffer Rear TJ springs

I have RE 3.5 inch Rear TJ springs, They are to soft for my liking, does anyone know the spring rate, or a stiffer spring?

see if you can get some from Rockkrawler. They are stiffer than most of the other ones I've seen.

I'm running their 4" in the back and the spring itself is like 1/2" diameter spring rod.

Rock Krawler makes some of the softest springs around. They flex really nice. I've had both and RE are by far stiffer. Don't go RK if you want stiff.

Yep, my Rockcrawler springs were limp noodles. Their shocks suck too.

I think RE's or Roughcountry's are stiffer.

What type of shocks are you running? Might want to try a change in shocks first

I had Teraflex and then RE and the RE's are stiffer IMO. I still get the tires up into the wheelwell with a 5.5 spring on a 35" tire so they aren't that stiff. I too would like a little stiffer spring only because I carry too many spare parts and tools.

Check out the OME 4". IIRC the spring rate was 235lbs/in rear and 220 front
