Wrangler Leafs

Ok, moving on from coils(too much work....to wrangler leaf springs. I have run across a set of wragler leaf springs for a very reasonable price(sorry mxnhid). What is the best spring pack to run? Do they even vary and has some one done a nice writeup that I missed and should be look at? Does this mean I will end up having to get new drive shafts or can I still spacer-em?

Thanks,
Reuben

Re: Wrangler Leafs

I plan to use Wrangler Springs, very soon.

You should check what Chris has done with them http://hsp.rockcrawler.com
He did use a different drive shaft, but that wasn't because of the YJ Springs, he has had that drive shaft for a while.

CSC has a complete bolt on for the YJ's, and so far it is a shackle reverse, but they are working on a non-shackle reverse kit too.

Chris and Ron are working on doing it thierself (non-S/R) and to keep a better approach angle they are having the front YJ spring shortend to match the length of the rear Samurai spring (only on the front 1/2 of the spring), this will give them the benifit of the YJ ride and longevity over any other spring setup.

They use the front YJ's in the Sami rear and the rear YJ's on the sami front. (I think)

Fred from Canyon State has a great kit, with all the hardware, that will keep everything safely inline. Check out thier Website. I followed Fred through one of our toughest trails here in Arizona, and he "never" pulled a wheel off the ground, due to a lack of flex/articulation, and the ride his set-up give is smoother than anything I have seen.

From what I have seen so far, you will only need a 2 inch spacer or slip yoke for the front, and a 1 incher for the rear, no "super expensive" drive shaft needed, unless you drive like a nut.

Read Chris's write-up and check out the Flex!

Once you see one of these YJ setups on a Zook and at the lower cost than most out there, I am sure you'll go for it too. IMO
