XJ spring dimensions

Does anyone know the dimensions on the XJ springs? (i.e. length, center pin hole location, etc.)

Re: XJ spring dimensions

Yes, sorry for not getting back to you sooner.

XJ's have leaf springs in the rear, and the springs are 51.63" long, 2.5" wide, and have a spring rate of 160 lbs/in.

SJ's (Waggies) have 52" long springs, 2.5" wide, and they also have a rate of 160 lbs/in.

The XJ's have 3 leaves and the SJ's have 5 leaves.

FC's and SJ's (Waggies and pickups) have springs 52" long and 2.5" wide, but of varying rates.

Sorry, not sure of the center pin location.

Re: XJ spring dimensions

Mark,

Thanks a bunch for the response. Glad to see you back on the board - you've certainly had your hands full!

One more thing...are those dimensions the "actual" length of the spring (along the arch), or are they straight from eye to eye, like a straight line from one mountain peak to another?

Re: XJ spring dimensions

That's along the arch.

My YJ springs measure 46" long along the arch and 43.5" straight eye to eye.
