CJ springs ??

What is the going price on a set of used CJ springs ? I found a set for $100 . Or how about a set of new ones ?? How much would those be ??
I'm thinking of Rears up front and CJ's in the back with a 6" SPOA ... Or should I be thinking of YJ's ???

Thanks Mac0

Re: CJ springs ??

I got my front cj's free, well my friend gave them up after I helped him install a rubicon express lift on his cj.
I am waiting on some parts from NCO, so I can install them. I have heard you they don't hold up well to spring wrap, but I have a trac bar already. JC

Re: CJ springs ??

I like the set-up that I have. It seems to work really well. I've got RUF & CJs rear w/ a 7" SPOA. All bolted to stock spring hangers & using longer shackles 'cuz the MLs have an unloading problem. Got flex for days and no wrap problems. I got my CJs for $65 shipped to my door from a person on this BBS. I believe they came from WA state.

This isn't maxed out. I've got a pic. where 2 tires are barely touching, I'll try to find it.

J C Whitney has them for about $75 each.

If you buy used ones turn them upside down and measure the arc to be sure they're the same. If one has a bit more arch put it on the right side.

Toyguy...I'm getting ready to use CJ's under mine as well, so I'm courious as to why you would put the one with more arc on the right side. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Re: CJ springs ??

I wonder as well. I figured the one with the greater arch would be best on the left side because it would offset my fat ass when I'm sitting in my Zuk...lol. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: CJ springs ??

Almost every Zuk I've seen to date leans to the right for some odd reason . Maybe age or the crown in the road has done this , I do know the fuel tank sits a bit over center that way ....maybe that's it .

Re: CJ springs ??

The battery, gas tank, t-case, and spare are all mounted to right of centerline. Someone posted not long ago that they had their zuke weighed and it was 150 lb heavier on the right tires. When I did the RUF/CJ swap my rears were really even as were the new CJs. It sits about 1/2" low to the right. Might as well allow for it if you have a choice!
