    Are they worth a SH!T or not. This is for a trail rig. My local guys say they can't get Tuff Country springs.

    They'll be stiffer than TC springs, because they have a higher spring rate. You can order TC springs form suspensionconnection.com and several other places.

    I'm just going by what I've read. I'm a cyberwheeler :D .. I've never actually had experience with either spring :o

    Friend has superlift on springs on his CJ-7. They flex pretty well but hitting train tracks hurts, usually his rear end jumps out to the side:eek1: They dont do high speed stuff well imo, they tend to bounce. Hes also using superlift shocks.

    I've never used TC springs, but I have 4" Superlift springs and they are soft enough for me.

    I believe they make 2 different spring rates.
    The HD one are stifffer than the normal ones.
    I would like to try a set of the TC's to compare, My SL HD's are fairly stiff

    You dont know the differance between superlifts and tc's until youve tried tc's Once you get a set of em, youll never go back (unless your running a custom spring :D) Also a tc 4" spring has more free arch than a superlift meaning that it gets its height from arch, not spring rate. this means the spring can be soft but still provide lift.;)
