I simply ask, how many of you with lifted TJ/LJ/JK's, (particularly JK's), notice the aftermarket springs are a lot stiffer that stock?
I am simply seeking feedback, post up your answers.

I've had a miryad of aftermarket springs over the years between XJs and the TJ. Some have been too stiff. Some have been too soft.

The spring rate is what you are after. I found it was the only way to really compare springs. each manufacturer is different and each different lift height has a different rate

Springs can be stiffer- different spring rate.
second shocks can make it feel stiffer, You'll feel the bumps more.
third when you lift your jeep the control arms etc are on different angles ( form original and your use too ) so will affect the way the suspension moves/feels.

Plus when ( I know you are) you go bigger tires and take off you C rated 6 ply tires and go to D 8 ply or E 10 ply tires things will feel stiffer/more bumpy..

Rubicon express springs plus E rated Toyos equals a very firm ride. Looking forward to dropping to a C or D rated tire.
