SPRO springs

I've just completed the spring-over on my Sammy. I currently have Stock springs w/poly bushings, extended shackles and the stationary spring mounts have been extended 2" and boxed in with 1/4" plate. Now my question is what spring combo would be best? Rear Sammy leafs all around, rear CJ springs all around? What would work the best with Glenns missing link? Thanks.

Re: SPRO springs


Best setup for our Missing Link is rear Zuks up front and front CJ springs in back. You can see more info on the system at http://www.summitoffroad.com/zuklink.html

Re: SPRO springs

On my '86 Sami, I am using rear Samurai springs in the front. For the rear, I
am also using rear Sami springs with some mods. First, I removed the bottom thick leaf (overload). Then I cut the mounting "eyes" off the top leaf, leaving the leaf in place. I then had new top leafs fabricated 3 inches longer than the stock top leaf. Cost about $100 and works/rides great!!

Thanks Glen. Now it will still work ok with the inside spring mounts being extended ?

Perhaps a missing link. Rocky Road Outfitters sell those. www.rocky-road.com

Re: SPRO springs

The front CJ springs used in the rear are they stock or lifted CJ springs??

Re: SPRO springs

You can use either stock or lifted CJ springs. Some people say you get more articulation from the flat springs, some people favor arched, just depends on your needs and preferences. If you use the stock rear spring up front you should be fine with the stock CJ spring, unless you have a hardtop that you load down all the time, then you might want a 1 or 2inch spring.
