9 leafs -soa

Can you run spring under on the back and spring over on the front on a 76 cj5? Hint--- trying to get driveshaft angle at rear down.

Yes, you 'can' run front driveshaft only....it's real easy if you have a D300 with twin shift sticks....

As for SUA in the rear and SOA in the front....is suspect your jeep would look a lot like one of those Ford Ranger Wana-be Baja trucks where the front is aiming at the stars.

If driveline angle is an issue and you don't have a CV driveshaft yet.....my advice would be to stop trying to be cheap.....no mater how hard you try, you are not going to get rid of driveline vibrations with a stock ds and any kind of lift......aint gonna happen....

If there is a decent driveline shop in your area, they should be able to build you a good CV ds for about $200-250.

If you are wanting to go SOA...do the SOA first making sure to point the pumpkin towards the xfer case....then measure for the ds.

Yes, you can run on the front drive alone. Yes, you can lift only the front. Both seem like goofy ideas, though.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

Running front drive only on pavement is not fun. Also being a pavement cruiser and having a d30 front with I'm guessing a "healthy" 350 isn't going to last long. If it's a pavement cruiser drop the t-case a couple inches to help flatten out the drive shaft angle. I'd much rather have rear wheel drive than front wheel.

Put in a light truck transmission. Driveshaft angle will improve because there won't be a transfer case.
