Stock Springs

But, I have some questions:

1. Does anyone have stock springs for the 3.7 liter that were removed for a lift with fairly low miles?

2. Has anyone used Hemi or 4.7 springs in the v6? Affects?

3. Is there a chart or location that would have the spring rates for each different code?

I have an extra set of rear springs in my garage. I think that they are off of a v8 XK.

Cool. Where are you located? What's the mileage on them?

I'm in CA. I want to say that mileage was ~100k, but I could be wrong. I got them from another member on JeepForum.

Mine have 140K on them, so I was thinking of going new if I could not find someone who removed them with very few miles on them. Now, you have me curious about what would happen if I put them on my V6.

Also, is there any information anywhere that explains the different codes for the springs? All four of my springs have different codes, even both fronts and both rears. Strange. What gives?

From what I've seen, the Grand Cherokee WK V6's gain about 1/2" rear lift when swapping to commander hemi coils. Since the Commander is heavier, I would think that you should see very minimal if any height differences when swapping to a hemi coil, in the rear at least.
