Quick SPOA advice needed ASAP

Doing the SPOA on my 87 today, CJ springs rear and Zuk rears up front. Is there any benefit from flipping the Zuk overload springs and using them on the CJ spring pack? Is this needed?

You do two things by flipping those overload springs. Theory is they help with spring wrap and they might, I dont know. They also lift your rear end up that much more. Give us pics of your rig when your done.

I did that same thing when I had that setup. It did not help all that much with spring wrap, still whipped them good! I say do it you can always pull them off. I will tell you I wrapped mine when I was loaded down on the Rubicon, so they may help a "normal loaded zuk".

Thanks for the responses, I decided against using the overloads. I am planning on building a traction bar anyways. Just was not sure if the overloads "needed" to be on the CJ springs.

I would actually recommend using the overloads. The CJs are a front spring and so have no overloading protection should you pile it on for a big trip. Using the overload will help the longevity of your springs and won't hurt articulation any. We've used overloads on all the rear conversions we have done.
