Re: 11 leaf spring or 6 leaf spring
Well, Rick 's setup on his 56 CJ6 is a custom spring pack from National Spring. If you use a greater number of thin leaves, as apposed
to a small number of thick leaves, you get a much more progressive spring rate. This gives you a softer ride on the street, but still has enough
weight capacity. The only disadvantage is the lose of clearance under the spring plates if your Jeep is still a spring under.
