Happy New Year to All, Another product for the Wrangler TJ

Happy new year to all, one of my new year resolutions is to try and update my blog at least twice a month. It’s just some times it gets a little hectic here and things get missed. Anyway here is a product that has come to my attention for lifted TJ Wranglers made by Black Diamond it corrects the curvature of the rear spring after a  3”+ lift.

The factory TJ rear springs are mounted in a "leaning forward" position, which causes the coils to bow excessively rearward once the Jeep is lifted, especially when the suspension compresses. The problem is evident at 3" of lift height, and becomes more of an issue as lift height increases. This incorrect coil loading results in lost ride height and a diminished "too soft" spring rate.


Black Diamond's new Coil Correction Kit includes a pair of weld-on frame brackets and replacement upper coil seats; enough for both sides of one TJ. The frame brackets have adjustment holes that permit the coils and compression travel-dampeners to be in the optimal up-right position, even with wheelbase increases of up to 2". Use with any lift brand, 3" and taller in height.

Welding is required to fit the parts.

This kit is available from FTE 4x4 Specialist’s Ltd. please call for your requirements.
