CJ3B Spring conversion???

Has anyone out there done a YJ or late model CJ spring conversion on one of these?? Cant find anything on this in my search. Love the Jeep, hate the ride and articulation.

Re: CJ3B Spring conversion???

If you are like me (puting new hangers and shackles) put anything on there you like, unfourtunatly I was a dummy and ordered stock springs. Their only about an 1 3/4 wide a wider spring could have been better.

ps the older jeeps are so short I'm pretty sure the word articulation is out of the question? mine so far is as stiff as... well you know

Re: CJ3B Spring conversion???

A much easier way to go is to use the Holbrook Springs. They were written up in Four Wheeler Mag and another one also.
They are custom springs that are stock width but are about 9" longer than stock with an offset axle centering pin to locate
the axle in the stock location. I drove the 3b with the prototype set in Moab, Utah and believe me, they work.
Rich Imholt who owns "Bad Bee" the yellow 3b they were prototyped on ramped over 1,000 on a 23 degree ramp
with these springs with a spring under. They soak the bumps up real nice too. Holbrook Specialties can be reached
at 503-655-4747. They now have a web-site but don't know what the address is. Good luck. [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] Nickmil
