Re: CJ front springs in rear questions
Tim at NCO will tell you to look for 4-leaf packs and I agree. That's what I'm running now, with Trail Tough's hangers and Con-Fer shackles. The ride is very soft (which I like) and the articulation is good. However, if you carry heavy loads in the rear or carry rear passengers, you may want a five-leaf pack instead.
As for where to find them, I'm told that 4x4 shops have them laying around from the J**p people that come in for suspension lifts and upgrades. You might try calling a few shops in your area and asking for them. I would not recommend getting them from a junkyard (for various reasons). JC Whitney has them, but they are not OEM and may not hold up as well as OEM springs (IMHO). HTH
