The XJ springs could be to stiff for the rear of a light weight Sportage. I bet the Grand is almost twice as heavy in the back. Even the TJ springs don't compress as much and the sportage as the do on a TJ.


95 Sportage, gone but not forgotten.
98 Jeep TJ, 4" Zone springs with RC Long arms, Ford 8.8", 4.56 gears & Detroit locker rear, D30, 4.56 & Detroit Trutrack front.
