Hey guys, I have eibach lowering springs on my jeep for about two years now. I would like to raise it back to it's original height. With it being lowered for that long is it going to be as easy as putting the original springs back in or am I looking at more then that??

Thanks in advance

I assume they'd go right back in. I might suggest new spring seats (the rubber type things the spring sets in) since they'll have different wear marks from the eibachs. I'm guessing.

I think a lot of the squeaking issues from lowering come from the aftermarket springs not fully seating in the factory indentation in the spring seats. Just my thought.

If, theyre not alrdy done for lol.
Lowering a car with stock struts, struts take a beating.
Ive learned that Over the years, and learned to keep the Stock suspension in the garage, and Drop it on Coilovers. lol

This is part of the reason why I didnt touch my suspension... But when I go to the track with the other Jeeps mine looks lifted next to theirs.
And when I mash the gas pedal, the rear end squats quite a bit, but it doesnt bottom out.

I gotta say the factory Bilstein setup handles pretty well though. If I lower my Jeep I would also buy shocks so I could adjust them for the new ride height. I dont want to sacrifice ride quality, and increase the ware on my suspension.
