Looking for some good springs for the CJ

I have been using Trailmaster springs for the last few years and have been very happy with the flex and ride. They are starting to sag and I'm ready to replace them. Trailmaster changed the springs somewhere along the line and now they are very stiff. We called the company trying to find out what was going on but of course they just beat around the bush and didn't tell us anything. I'm not buying the Trailmasters anymore because of this. I'm looking for a set of 4" lift springs that are flexy and don't cost an arm and a leg. I'm also thinking of doing a spring over and using stock YJ springs. Any thoughts would much appreciated.

I've been real pleased with the Rubicon Express 4.5" leafs on my CJ. They have been on for about 4 years. I had to replace one rear pack since I bent the main. However, I am thinking about going to SOA.

I have no personal experience with BDS, but I would recommend them based upon their warranty and good reviews.

I have had superlift softride springs on the CJ for 5 years now. I hated them at first. After a few months though, they settled in and i started liking them.

At first they rode like a mack truck, but after the first few months they broke in and the ride has be great. They flex like mad, and keep on going. The rear springs have held up fine, the front springs havent done so well but i do have a very heavy front end. So i cant complain. My plan is to run the the new rear springs in the front.

What????

I sure like my BDS springs. They ride as better than my stock springs did and flex very well. They're not really cheap though.

I have to agree on the BDS springs. I have a set of 2.5" for my CJ. They are a

little on the expensive side, but I think they are worth it. You get what you pay

for, and the warranty is outstanding.
