CJ suspension installed

Today I finished the install of my CJ7 suspension install.
Will post pics in a couple of days to see what you think.
The ride quality has improve noticebly, off road articulation is a LOT better... still need to buy some rear longer shocks.
Has someone done this install in this BBS?
I know about some of you that run Wrangler's.. but any CJ's?

Re: CJ suspension installed

Yes I run front CJ's in back with missing links, they work well for me. I would continue to run it for another year but plan on going to coils As long as I can buy the parts this winter.

Re: CJ suspension installed

Looking at putting Cj springs on the rear of the Zuk and leave the Rear Zuk springs up front! It all depends on if I'm going to get the YJ's first or Cj's.

Re: CJ suspension installed

What is needed to run CJ leafs in the rear of a sammy? I should be getting my sammy this weekend and ordering the RRO SPOA Monday..! Looking into spring options. Do i need CJ front or rear springs for the rear of the Zuk and how do they mount up.

93 Tracker, ProComp, Calmini, 31's, Thorley, K&N, etc..., aka the donor. Looking for a donee..

Re: CJ suspension installed

How much lift does the CJ M/L rear give? I have a S/R and was wondering if it would sit level. Is ML alright with the S/R because of possible nose-dive? Jim

Re: CJ suspension installed

Of you go with the CJ's in a SpOA config, better plan on a track bar. Without one, I've seen quite a few spring packs wrap up and just as many busted u-joints from the wrapping action.

Re: CJ suspension installed

I am just doing homework for the future, i am planning on getting SPOA'ed i the first week of having the sammy, but I plan to do more in the future, looking to go 33's at a later date once i get the hang of the SPOA off road, I am used to my IFS Procomped (ie very stiff IFS) Tracker and it should be quite a change in driving style.

Re: CJ suspension installed

Mini4x, to answer your question about what spring to use, go with rear Samurai springs up front and front springs off of a 76+ CJ for the rear. You can get more info for this lift at RRO web-page, click here;

Re: CJ suspension installed

On your SPOA make sure RRO has the parts in stock, there can be quite a delay sometimes, plus the airtraffic problems
right now. You may want to think of getting it from Tim at
NCO, plus they also sell a traction bar that is needed either way (CJ spring or not) or you will soon destroy your springs. which rig you running at Zookin?
