Re: jeep springs ?????

Yj springs are the way to go. Im only halfway thru my project and i can see i made a good choice by going yj's. You can buy the kit from asian auto or trail tough and others have them too.

It can be made fairly easily also.

Do a search and youll find lots of info.

Almost forgot.

Springs and lift are usually fairly cheap. But with bigger tires comes the need for deeper gears. With the lift youll prolly need new shocks, longer brake lines,etc. Thats where the money adds up real quick.

Re: jeep springs ?????

IMHO, nothing beats YJ's. The rear YJ is the cheapest and you gets you the most benefit. Nothing reallt different from a regular spring over except for the "kit" and the springs. In the front though, you need to go with a kit like Trail Tough sells or do a shackle reversal and frame extension. The kit is easier and cheaper, but limits yout wheelbase and has shackles and linnks out front which, in some peoples opinion, can cause problems on steep stuff.

Take a look at the trail tough site. Look at his YJ kit and study all the parts shown there. Then look at the basic kit and notice the difference in parts and price. If you are already SPOA and everything else, then the basic kit will probably do. If not, you will need to open the wallet wide.
