CJ5 flexes like a crowbar
Here's my problem. I own a 1975 CJ5. It is pretty well set up with a 350 V8, Dana 20 t-case, Dana 30/AMC 20, and 35" tires (4"lift), but it drives like a basketball and flexes like a crowbar. I want to do a SOA using stock YJ springs to soften the ride and give me some articulation. My question(s) is/are: Since it is a '75 would I be miles ahead to just swap in the entire YJ suspension? I would need new hangers, perches, springs, longer upper shock mounts(longer shocks=more wheel travel..right?), and U-bolts/plates. I was wondering if I got all components listed above off of a YJ, then put the YJ spring hangers (I know they are wider than the frame) the same distance apart as the CJ hangers would that give me enough lift to run 35's? I am very clueless as you can see, so any help with any part of this conversion would be very helpful. E-mail me at [email protected]
or just post it here! Thanks again.
