Wrangler springs on a CJ-5

I'm putting wrangler srpings under my 69 cj5 with a spring over and Scout Dana 44's. My question is what should the distance be between the shackle mount and the other spring mount? What is it on a stock YJ?

Re: Wrangler springs on a CJ-5

well what i did was measure the spring from center hole to center hole.. with no wieght on it.. mine was somewheres around 42" i think.. then made that the point for the shackle to bolt up too.. once you put wieght on the spring.. then it will naturally flex rearwards.. mine turned ok.. i would suggest adding a 1/2" to 1" to that measurement.. have a write up on my page.. and mine does work great.. but if i did it over.. i would at that extra bit to my measurement..
