CJ Springs in rear

I did a search couldn't find what I needed to know. Still working on my 2.7 swap. Decited to go SOA with rears up front and cj's rear. My question is I'll be running 1 1/2" rancho sammy rears up front will I need to buy 1 1/2" front cj's for the rear to be level?

Depends on how you build your rear spring pack for the front. I'd use the three mains from the rear pack with the two bottom leaves from a front pack. CJ's work fine in the rear (that's what I have), but if I did it over I'd just go with YJ's and be done with it.

Re: CJ Springs in rear

That is the setup that I am running now and my truck sits level (BTW - I am SPOA as well).....Front CJ springs in the rear with the Samurai overload leaf & TT 1-3/4" extended shackles.

In the front I run Samurai rear springs less the overload with the two bottom leafs from the the stock front Samurai pack with TT M/Ls (3/4" shackles). It rides nice on the road and flexes really well - it is a nice compromise between daily driver and flexy suspension.....no major body roll, brake dive or spooky handling.

Here is a picture I took a few months back right after I lifted it and slapped on the wheels and tires (still had no bumpers, shocks, etc.)

I would also recommend that you speak with Brent at Trail Tough - he can get you setup properly with some really nice and beefy parts - additionally he ships fast and offers industry leading tech support.
