I am putting coils on the rear of my Toyota truck and i am using a set of stock 94' XJ springs. I am needing to know the length of the spring when it is compressed on a XJ. Not completely compressed but at normal ride height. Thanks

It'll be hard to find someone that still has stock coils on this board.

yea and the front end is going to compress them more than the rear of your truck <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">

If I could find a @#)(*&#@$(* tape measure... I do have a stock set on our XJ, but then we don't wheel it like I do the other Jeeps!

I would really like to run a lifted set of XJ springs but these were free. I know that the rear of my truck will not compress them as much, but i would like an idea of how they are on a cherokee. The rear of my truck consists of a tube frame with a 16 gallon fuel cell, 36" spare, battery, and about a 150 lbs of tools and spare parts. I think it will be comparable to the weight of a front XJ. Thanks

Robotoy, the xj coils are very soft. Of course I'm sure that is what you want. I don't understand why you want lift spring though. The factory springs are actually longer. On the lift springs they just use a thicker wire = more spring rate more lift. But I think the factory spring will FLEX better. Just a newbie's opinion.

??? This makes no sense, I know for a FACT that my lift springs are taller then the stockers....not to mention softer.
