does anyone have info about using wrangler springs on a samurai??i would like to "inboard" the springs under the frame and was wondering if anyone has detailes pics or diagrams of spring hangers that will work (main eyehanger and shackle hanger & M/L shackle)?dimensions would be excellent!! i have mechanical ability and a welder,torch, and metal cutting saw. thanks for any info. Mitch
no pic's but psf4x4 and i will be doing this to his in the near future. as you have probably guessed you will have to make new spring mounts for the frame and wider spring perches for the axles. the wrangler spings are also longer so you will have to make up for this when you attach your new mounts. i'm not sure yet but i imagine you might have to make a small extention to your frame for the mounts on either end of the zuk to make up for the length of the springs. we have planned on this anyway because we will be extending the wheelbase at the same time.

I followed him through the toughest trail in Arizona, Fred's Zook never lifted one of his 33" Boggers, it has the greatest amount of flex you would ever need, and it rides like it is floating on air!
If I ever get caught up around here, I am going YJ, with Fred's Kit. I have the rear hanger, and his old CJ's for now, and my Old rear springs up front on missing links. With his setup, I will move the missing link to the rear (maybe) and just use the YJ's, no missing link needed or Pan Hard bar. The YJ's outlast any other spring out there, and cost allot less.
There is no other kit on the market to compare to it for ride and simplicity at a reasonable investment.
