As far as springs go--especially leaf springs, you usually get what you pay for. One of my best friends has a 77 CJ-5 with custom made 6" lift Alcan springs. He has a D44 front and 9" rear axle with 36" swampers. The springs, coupled with the RS9000 shocks...make the short wheelbase CJ-5 ride as good as any cadillac Ive driven. No, Im not kidding. He DOES have a shackle reversal, though. The cost of the springs was NOT much more than an out of the box kit. You will have to weigh the vehicle though, and plan for things like winches, etc.
