    Haven't seen any talk about the H&R springs for lifting. Anyone with any experience? They make decent lowering springs. Thanks.

    I have installed these on my KJ a few weeks ago. Lift was 1.5 to 2". Ride is much better (smoother). Shocks are still oem.

    Sweet thanks. Does the Jeep level out or does it still have the slightly raised rear end?

    Just not a real popular or well backed springs really.
    Doesn't give as much lift as what we normally use
    not sure on spring rate have never been able to get spot on info like we have for say OME

    H&R are well known springs over here in Europe. Got a good deal on German Ebay.
    Rear is slightly raised.

    Alot of the TJ guys are running them for low COG builds. They're variable rate, which is a good thing if you do slow technical as well as higher speed offroading. Also, you can level the rig front to rear by either adding an extra rear isolator, or using conduit nuts up front.

    Big fan of Germany manufacturing. Love to see a few photos and some measurements of a Libby with the H&R 29203-1 springs installed.
