Default Does a KJ Lift Kit fit a KK?

Hey all,

I have tried searching on here and Googling couldn't find a definitive answer.

We are looking at upgrading my wife's KJ Cherokee shortly and a KK Cherokee is a potential replacement vehicle.

I have a brand new Ironman 2" lift kit that I have never fitted to the KJ and was wondering if it will also fit the KK, or even some of the components? I know it's not a hell of a lot of money saved, but I would still like to use it if I can (and keep her in another Jeep! )

If anyone could provide some guidance that would be fantastic.

Cheers,
Hanna

Looking at the Ironman web site they don't list a lift kit for the KK so I would guess no. But would be woth calling Ironman direct as I think you'll find very few people on here who have used the Ironman stuff on a KK.

Thanks Dave.

You know, I didn't even think to do the most simple thing and check the Ironman website!

So Ironman list the rear shocks and front struts as being the same, plus I have found some overseas Ironman ads with the front springs being the same (Part No. JEEP 014C), but no definitive answer on the rear springs yet (Part No. JEEP 015B). One website lists the rear springs common to both, one lists them as for KJ only.

At least that is some good news. Hopefully someone on here can tell me if the rear springs are the same on KJ's and KK's. At worst I might be up for some rear springs.

Still no definitive answer to this question yet.....

I may have to just bite the bullet and get some other rear springs and hope that they match the front in height and ride quality!

Surely someone must know the answer?

Thanks for confirming Tog!

Do you know if the King Springs were part no. KJRR-40 by any chance, or do you have a link to where you bought them from?

Did they lift the rear a true 2"? I am keen to get something that matches the Ironman springs as closely as possible. The other option is that I buy a full new set of springs.

What have the King's been like on the KK?

Cheers.
