Re: cj springs??

Look for 4 leaf packs, fronts only, off CJ-7's. They go in the rear.. Perches need to have a hole drilled in them 1" rearward of the existing one. Youll also need really long shackles or, better, some sort of jointed shackle like the drop link, M/L or expander.

You could also install new spring hangers to move the mointing points instead of drilling the perches.

Re: cj springs??

dang then I will probably try to get the fronts only cause I just put a shackle lift on it and mty springs are sort of bending in front of the axle but it is spreading to the rear!

Re: cj springs??

The YJ spring's are the same spring length, the only diff is how many leaf's are in the spring...ie' 4 for the 4cyl and 5 for the 6cyl

Re: cj springs??

That is an expensive kit. I think because you have to buy likt three major parts. all costing 300+. For that price (all parts required) I might as well get coil over. m Don't care about the labor. Wrangler is easier to install.
