Yj spring swap question!

hey I was wondering how much longer are the yj springs then stock in the front and in the back.....I was thinking of making a drop shackle or missing link type shackle that would accommodate these but I need to know how much longer it is and how wider would I have to tamper with the frame spring mounts?? thank you

Re: Yj spring swap question!

From top to bottom, here's a picture of the stock Samurai front (twisted main leaf), stock Samurai rear, 76 CJ front, and YJ front/rear. Note the location of the spring centering pins. Of the 4, the YJ springs are by far the softest, yet the they're the heaviest and heavy-dutiest.



I believe the YJ's are 46 inches long. And 2.5 inches wide.

Re: Yj spring swap question!

Yup you'll need to figure out the spring hangers on the frame. You need the wider hanger tabs, and the front of the spring forward due to the length.

No problem postin' the pic. I'm always happy to help out!
