Re: SOA springs: CJ, YJ, or Waggy
I tried a few scenarios in 2 different jeeps.
First, when I did the SOA in my CJ7, I used YJ rear springs front and rear. The rear lasted a couple runs before being vertical so I then went with wagoneer front spring in the rear. Those last a couple runs before the was up flush with the frame (too long). So then I went with 6 leaf military wrap CJ in the rear.
Second SOA was in the scrambler which is a little heavier than the 7'. I tried OME's in the front and those flattened out so I went with 6 leaf CJ leafs in the front also. That seems to have done the trick.
BUt, if you don't mind moving hangers and what not, those wagoneer springs Max swapped sure look very flexy!
AS far as aftermarket, I would recommend the JCW 7 leaf CJs like Tom said. Buddy has em on a YJ and they are great.
