I've been out of it a bit in keeping up with new options.

Have a TJ with 5.5 lift. Need to bring it down a bit for my son to drive.

Question;
Will Rubicon Coil springs and shocks fit on TJ perches. Thank you.

I think this is what you want

I run JK bilstein shocks shocks on my TJ. They are longer and more travel for flexing.
Front I needed to press out the metal sleeve that is inside the bushing and press in the TJ's bar pin.

The rear springs upper opening is very small compared tot he TJ's. Not sure I like the idea of modding the spring like the article says.

Thank you fellows...

Nice find Ian. Willy, not sure if I'm looking for more flex since my son will be street driving. The front seems doable to lower the height, the rear spring does seem a bit trouble some in trying to modd the spring.

Maybe I'll just go with 33" tires once the 38s wear out and leave everything as is, don't think it would look too bad or have any street issues that I can think of unless you guys have a different opinion. Not sure if it will look too doughnut with 33s. This TJ has less than 10K miles on that engine.

Plan to remove the exo and rear bar behind seat that hold the harness, still have the stock belts.

Because he has a Mama Bear :grin:
She knows that my son loves challenge and might be going over cars in the school parking lot among 30 mph cornering. Not sure where he gets it.

Wonder if anyone here has 3" lift springs they want to get rid of...

:lol:
Have you checked with Ruben?
I think putting 33's on it will look very strange with the lift it has.

Joel, I need coil springs for a TJ out of someone that upgraded from stock to a 3" lift with coils that updated again to a higher lift and has them laying around.

Yes I can change them if I had them. If you know of someone let me know. Thanks.

Jim, I have a pair of front JK Rubicon shocks if you want them.
They measure 16"/23"
