Re: CJ7 SOA
86, I think you would best to stay with a SUA. by your comments, i think you are just wanting the ride height and are not worried about the flex that you gain from the SOA. It is alot of work, that is not what you want to begin with. I suggest you keep your old springs and loosen them up. do they have the crimped leaf clamps or the bolt kind? if they have the crimped ones like my Superlift. Take a hammer or something and open the clamps up. It will ride alot better that way. Get 1" poly body mounts and use your 1" shackles.
Presto! 6" lift and less than half the work! and it will still drive halfway decent.
Why do you want 6" of lift? what size tires are you wanting to install?
76 CJ, well what is left of it! working on my YJ-7. YJ frame, YJ tub, 2" BDS SOA D44's F&R 258, T18 and D20
Will trade extra kidney for Jeep parts!!
