I got a wrangler pair from four wheel drive hardware, and I cut the sides down to size on a metal band saw. They have worked great for 2 years now.

Check the Samuri board. They run 2" springs also.

Re: Wedge Plates for 75 CJ

Whatever wedge plates you use, make sure they are steel, and use the spring center bolt to bolt them to the spring. I made the mistake of useing aluminum wedges, they would wear, and the U-bolts would lossen up, I rolled my Jeep because of this. I pulled the wedges out the first chance I got. Still drives fine just hard to flat tow, and from your previous post, I am assuming that is why you want the wedges. Another option is offset upper ball joint bushings. They will only give you up to 2 degrees, but it might be enough to make it flat tow allright.

Thanks, Ray
