Got my YJ springs

Well guys, I got a set of YJ springs today, so now it's time to start creatin'. I have a quick question, I got two 4 spring packs and two 5 spring packs, should I use the 5 packs up front or should I just take a leaf out to make them equal? I can't wait to get this done. BTW... I got all 4 springs for $80... how'd I do?

Re: Got my YJ springs

I just picked up my YJ springs this past weekend. Now I'm waiting for my CSC kit to get to me. I've also got the 5/4 leaf packs (from a V6) but I'm not sure which should be used for the front. I would guess that you should use the 5's in rear if you have a hardtop. As I remember some others have had sagging problems in the rear due to the extra weight.

$80 is a good price for them. I ended up getting a set with 30k miles on them and they cost me $175. It's a bit higher than I wanted, but I was having trouble finding some locally. The only wrecker I found with them wanted $300 for the set of 4.

Re: Got my YJ springs

Both Fred from CSC and Dave from AAPA run the 5-leaf spring packs up front and the 4-leaf spring packs in back. Since my Samurai is heavier than most, I used the 5-packs front and rear, and I still wish I had a bit more spring in back. These YJ's are VERY soft!

Re: Got my YJ springs

HAHAHAHA, Just mess'n with ya[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] I have a friend that has a YJ and he just got Pro Comp's 4" springs and went SPOA with a 2" body lift and has 38" TSL's his rig is bad arse for a Jeep! I asked him if I could have his old springs and he said just take them, has 50,000 miles on them, kinda like new springs! Can't wait to get them under my zuk with toy axles! AHHHHHHHH, all it takes is time and money, not in that order!
