ALright's the deal.....
Right now i have a 4" suspension lift (new springs/shocks) and a shackle lift. I am running 35x13.5 Claws. The clearance factor is fine. What i am wanting to do , or curious to know about is......can i do a spring over lift w/ these 4 inch springs? Lots of people say it won't flex very well. is this true?? does anyone out there have a spring over lift w/ 4 inch springs on it? If so.. how does it flex? Also.....if i do away w/ my 4 inch springs and go for the spring over lift, what kind of springs should i get and where can i buy a spring over lift for my 77CJ5???

thanks [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]

Re: SOA W/ 4\" SPRINGS??

If your clearance is fine, Why do you want to go soa, If you don`t mind me asking? With the 4" you already
have, Going soa with those springs would create alot of problems mechanicly as well as being dangerous,
Height wise. That would be alot of lift on a swb Jeep.

Re: SOA W/ 4\" SPRINGS??

I too am curious why you want to go SOA if you have no clearance issues. Going SOA would be great, but DEFINATLY NOT with your 4" springs. I don't think you could even do that on a CJ5 without stretching the wheelbase.

Would be too high unless you gonna use some 40"+ tires. The springs would flex better than they do now. Plenty of choices for springs for SOA. Search "soa springs".
