hybrid SPOA with CJ & Samurai springs
 
Anyone every make hybrid spring packs for a SPOA using CJ and Samurai springs combined - how many leaves used (front and rear), any suggestions, feedback, etc......This is something I am contemplating - using the Samurai's main leaf spring (front and rear) and then combing it with CJ springs.......TIA

My front pack is....
Rear main, rear leaf, CJ leaf, CJ leaf

The rear pack is....
Rear leaf, CJ leaf, rear leaf, overload leaf

The front flexes great...(maybe even to soft for the hwy) my front shocks are 14/24 and they use all of that travel.

The rear doesn't flex quite as well as the front...but the good news is that I haven't S-wrapped the springs.

I've been running this set-up for over a year and the springs are holding up great.

Hey pug I used some cj leafs why I did my spoa a few months ago. My front springs were pretty much flat so we added a short cj spring either on top of the main leaf or 2nd can't remember which. Then put the rest of the zuk leafs on top. In the rear we used a longer cj leaf on top of the main zuk leaf then the rest of the zuk leafs and I kept the overload spring in there too. It sits perfectly level now and it gave me an extra 1/2" to 3/4" more lift. Rides great and flex is good too. Makes my half worn 29" tsl's look real small now! The springs might be a little stiffer then stock but I'll trade that for less axel wrap and longer spring life. Here's a pic. Hope this helps.
