wanted used CJ front springs for a \"little guy\"

Hey guys, I have a Suzuki Samurai and I'm doing some mods on it. I am looking for some used stock CJ front springs to mount on the rear of my Sammie. I know there must be a lot of them that you have pulled off in your own mods. I live in WA state, so I would prefer if you lived close for shipping.

Thanks from one of the "little guys".

Re: wanted used CJ front springs for a \"little guy\"

Another Samurai driver here, needing a pair of 4-leaf CJ front springs! (I live in central NC.) Please PM me if you can help and you're not too far away. BTW, I have a pair of lifted 5-leaf aftermarket springs for a possible trade. Thanks [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I guess you couldn't get those to work like you were hoping, Ken?

Actually, I haven't tried them. I only know that they look VERY firm, too firm for a lightweight Zuk with no back seat. I'm running stock 4-leaf CJ springs now, and the ride is perfect for me. I just want another pair for spares (or for my next Samurai!) BTW, thanks again man! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I have some, but they are in Texas. Let me know if you want to pay $25 plus shipping for the pair. I will see how many leaves they have.

Later,
Tom

Re: wanted used CJ front springs for a \"little guy\"

I have some CJ front springs, but they are aftermarket lift springs (don't know what kind or how much lift). They have 4 leaves. I can get measurements and numbers off of them if you're interested. I was thinking 20 bucks.
BTW, I'm 15 miles from Liberty Lake.

Thanks Tom and Javajeeper,

If the springs are 2" lift or less, I'll try yours first Java.

Re: wanted used CJ front springs for a \"little guy\"

I think they're less than 2. I stood one upside down on the floor and measured from the floor to the first leaf (what would be the top of the pack if they were mounted on a truck), 5 .75 inches.
PM me if you want to check them out.
