What is this discussion about?
#145 of 146 Warrior 2" coil spring spacer kit
May 20, 2010 (12:21 pm)
Hello All, I need some help and would like to ask a few questions about installation of this product and tire size. I look forward to hearing your advice
My Jeep is a 2006 Jeep T.J. Wrangler Rubicon.
The Product - Warrior 2" coil spring spacer kit with shocks
I have read that others have had problems installing coil spring spacers in the Rubicon models due to there being a difference in the bump stop diameter size from the Wrangler to the Wrangler Rubicon and a lathe might be needed. Is there any truth to this? Does anyone have any opinions on the quality of the shocks in the Warrior kit? What will I ask for down the road when buying replacement shocks seeing the are larger or so the kit clams? Should I also replace coil springs if the jeep has 88,000 miles?
Tire fit question: I was hoping to run aggressive off road 33" tires with no worries of rubbing, any thoughts? Could you through out some suggestions for tire size using stock wheels and preferably no wheel spacers.
Thank you All...............

Bump stop diameter - shouldn't be a problem at all.
No opinion on the quality of the kit. I went with new springs and shocks (OME).
Just buy new shocks with longer length rod for a jeep lifted X inches. If you have to replace the springs, go with a real lift kit and don't worry about spacers.
Tire fit. Rubbing will be in a couple of possible points. Wheel backspacing and tire width will determine rub WHILE TURNING. Rubicon wheels have 5" of BS. If you want to run 33x12.5's, you need new wheels with a lower backspacing number (3.75 to 4" of BS) or get wheel spacers like SPIDERTRAX. Rubbing at flex will occur offroad and rub the underside of the fenders. With a proper lift kit, 33" tires shouldn't rub with a 2" lift, but you may find a 1" body lift may be a good thing as well.
I suggest moving this thread into the Jeep Modifications thread - you'll get a LOT more feedback that way.
