cj\'s in back&stock rear in front?

I was wanting to know if any of you run the CJ springs in back and stock rear in front with missing links on both ends . If you do please tell how much articulation your getting (40 inches? ) Also, which shocks you are running and what you did about the driveshafts. I cant decide what lift to go with. Please let me know what you guys ( GALS )think. Thank You

Re: cj\'s in back&stock rear in front?

I would like to start by saying Welcome to the BBS. I see you have posted before but this is the first post I have seen. Now your best beton a lift, bang for buck, is also one of the easiest lifts to do. Spring Over Axle. It is cheap and effective. As far a Cj springs getting that much flex, no way. Wht you are thinking of is YJ springs. For 350 bucks you can buy this kit minus the springs and driveshafts. The SPOA (spring over axle) requries only a spacer for the driveshafts. I going to go ahead and let everyone eles tell you to SPOA now. Talk to you later, good luck.

Re: cj\'s in back&stock rear in front?

well man, cjs in the rear n rears up front with missing links is cool. there was a post with numerous replys in the last week or so. in the end, what do you want to accomplish? the YJ kit jhs mentioned is the csc kit. but problem is, getting one delivered. dont know full story but think theres problems at manufacturer level. not the vendors fault. if you want lift, i would definately go with a spoa. improves the ride greatly too. you can go with rears up front n cjs on back, dont know amount of lift, but they say it is a nice ride too. havent drove a set up like that to be able to tell ya. my front d-shaft is a custom asian auto parts shaft, my rear is a stock with a one inch extended slip yoke from trail tough. ifn your not worried about down time and want muchoos flex and lift, custom fab your own YJ kit. now that i **BOUGHT** my first kit, i will for sure make my second one myself. get YJ springs, and factory spring hangers, move springs inboard so their under frame, xtend the front frame approx 3-4 inches, hang everything in there n your done. but you will still want to go spoa to take full advantage of it. if i were starting out new again, first thing i would do is a spoa. just sooo much advantages all the way around, UNLESS you dont want that much lift. then id go with rears up front n cjs in the rear. but you need to talk to someone with experience with that set up for specs. i dont have them. sorry.

Re: cj\'s in back&stock rear in front?

Well I run that type of set-up SPOA, I would need to measure it to tell you how much flex I get. I am running 32"
Extended D-tech shocks. I would guess somewhere in the 25-30"
range. I am pretty happy with the set-up. YJ's definatly flex more, But they do have more body roll onroad.
(You should run adjustable shocks or sway bars With quick disconnects.) I think these (CJ and YJ) are the best of the leaf springs set-ups for flex the only better is coils.

Re: cj\'s in back&stock rear in front?

I am currently running that setup(until the coils arrive). CJs in back , rears up front, missing links front and rear. 9012s in front, 9010s in rear. Moved the front axles forward about an inch and the rear back about an inch. I run the 1.25 inch spacers on the drivelines. I get about 36" of tire lift

I knew it was at least 3' just don't like to mislead people until I measure to be sure.
