CJ Springs in the rear

Ive been thinking about putting a set of CJ springs on the rear of my Sami. But what I need to know is this:
What CJ springs, Front or Rear? What model of CJ, -2 -5 -6 -7 or -8? How much lift will they provide? Also, how do they mount up? Can I just bolt them straight up to my stock spring hangers and Missing Links, or will I have to do something different?
Thanks,

Re: CJ Springs in the rear

Any CJ with a post 96 production will work. You want the front springs. Preferable for the 6 cyl, though if you can only find 8 cyl front springs, you can always pull a couple of leafs.

Re: CJ Springs in the rear

How can you tell the difference if all you have is the springs? They came from a Renegade. Does that make a difference?

Re: CJ Springs in the rear

I assume you mean pre-86?

Tim, the fronts are 2" wide, the rears are 2.5" wide. Renegade is not a problem as it was just a trim option basically.

Re: CJ Springs in the rear

I've got a set of front CJ 3" lift springs that I used with my rear "missing link" shackles. I switched to these springs after I bent two sets of stock CJ springs; after the switch no more bending springs I'll sell the springs, missing links (from RRO) and "bump stops" for $150 plus shipping if you're interested.

Later,

Re: CJ Springs in the rear

Sorry, I knew you knew your stuff.

Just picked up a complete hydraulic clutch setup from a 1980 Jeep CJ, anyone ever try grafting one onto a Zuki before?
