CJ springs

I am getting ready for my SPOA and am planning on CJ springs in the rear and rear Sammy springs up front as suggested by some people. I have'nt done anything yet but my measurements seem like this won't work as the new setup the springs seem too long, they might work with my longer shackles but I have'nt tried it yet. Anyone have any input who have done this?

Re: CJ springs

Longer shackles may work, but the setup you're talking about is used with missing link setups. Speaking of missing links, has anyone on this board ever heard of Tim Hendra?

Re: CJ springs

I have also dealt with North Coast Offroad and can only say good things about them. Great people, reply to emails same day nearly every time and you can always get them on the phone. I have a set of breeze drop link shackles on the way.

Re: CJ springs

Bill4rest, That's the same thing I heard(read). I saw his missing links in Four Wheeler mag in March '97. Guess he should've put them on the market[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img].

Re: CJ springs

just did my SpOA (actually Glenn L and I did it) (Well mostly Glenn and I rolled in the oil and gas when I wasnt welding up shackles and crud) And Heres a few tips from me. ONE the cj springs are GREAT! My rig rides like a dream, but I had put in ML in all four corners as well. Its going to be hard to stick cj springs in without them. TWO, you have to move your rear axle foward on the confer pads one inch and on the spring pad plate. THREE, dont waste time with spacers, get the yokes from trial tough if you dont have a lathe. I (I means Glenn at this point) angled the axle up a few degrees to ease up the difference in the drive line. That was a great move. Any more questions just ask me while its still fresh. Max

Did you do the rear only and how much? 1,2,3 degrees?

Just remember for every mile on the
road of life there's two miles of ditch.
