Anyone do custom 6\" lift spring under?

My CJ-7 works okay with a 4" skyjacker, 1" body, and TJ rear fender flares to clear 33x12.5's. My aluminum headed 5.0HO is so much lighter than the old inline-6, and my hardtop and 200lb rear bumper/tire/tire carrier are making the ass sag. There's no easy was to "bump" up the rear an inch without adding a stiffining add-a-leaf. No longer shackles either, thank you.

Anyway, I'm thinking about going to 35's when my 33's wear out. I was thinking a set of custom, soft riding, flexy springs would be just the ticket. I could even go wider up front with new shackles and hangers. Anyone have recommendations?

Yeah I would say that if you are going to be lifing 6" with spring under they are going to have quite a arch. And the bigger the arch the less they are going to want to flex.

Before I went SOA, I had a set of Alcan 5" SUA springs and loved 'em. I now have a set of Alcan SOA +1" springs, and love those too. Alcan will custom build a set of SUA springs to your specs with up to 6" of lift for $700 plus freight.
