Hello, I just recently lifted my jku with a 2.5 coil lift with Fox Shocks. Since its a sport, I have no use for the take off parts but I have a friend with a 2000 Tj. He was interested in lifting his jeep. Can my coils and shocks be used on his jeep? If so would he experience any lift?

Thanks again,
Spencer

Yes they should be able to swap over with no issues.

Would he gain any lift?

Yes since the tj is so much lighter than the jk. As to how much it's up in the air

Don't quote me on this but I read that jk coils will gain anywhere from 2-3" on a tj depending on the spring numbers used


Did a little more Googling and found that the lift is mostly netted in the rear, the rear coil needs to be modified and the shocks are a great improvement over the old tj shocks. It seemed that people that did the swap were happy with the ride after though but that's all I could find
