Best 2.5\" Springs to go with RS9000 shocks

I just got a set of RS9000 shocks and now need a set of springs. Could someone give me a TOP 5 list. I would like to stay in the sub $300 range. A TOP 3 to avoid would be nice too. I have a 84 CJ7 w/258 and 31"AT, plan on getting 33 or 32 MT soon.

Also, will I need a dropped pitman arm or modify the driveline angles?

So you're talking just springs here, not a whole lift right?

Staying under $300 makes it difficult because my first answers were naturally Old Man Emu, National Springs, and Alcan.

Sorry but I've never priced individual springs before.

You will be hard pressed to get a good set of springs for $300...go back and read some of the old posts and you will see what happens...I have Dick Cepeck springs on my 84 and I believe they are made by either Pro Comp or Rough Country...Stiff Ride...I have softened it up a bit but it took some work..In your case the RS9000's will help.

I agree with John's list....with National most likely being the least expensive...I think everyone would agree that you are better off saving up enough money to buy the right spring the first time.

If you stay under 3" of lift, you will not need to use a droped pitman. However, anything over 1" lift and you might want to invest in a CV driver shaft...belive me, its worth the money.
