Re: Anyone ever Put commando springs on a CJ?

The fronts are offset like the rears, but tend to be skinnier (1.5"-1.75" on the '66-'71 models & 2" on the '72-'73s). They're generally thrashed too.
I think a set of rear leafs on the front would do great. You'd have to move the hangers at both ends anyway. I happen to know Toad has a pile of each.

On another note, Holbrock is probably subbing out the springs to National, Espo, or Alcan anyway. The equipment needed to fab them is too costly for a few dozen sets per year. Then of course there's his markup.... [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]
