Re: cj springs

I'm in the middle of mine and I am not going to redrill because I want the added wheelbase but I have heard/read that redrilling 1" forward should center it up. You might want to wait and make sure this is correct but I am pretty sure it is.

Wes.

Re: cj springs

1" should do it. lay your old springs and new springs next to each other and double check for you're application. i always stick a long bolt thru both springs to mmake sure thay are ligned up right. measure twice drill once. they are hard enough to drill without mistakes.

Re: cj springs

i've also seen axle relocation pads... they're made by trail tough. This way you wouldn't have to compromise the strength of your springs by drilling another hole! they come in 1" or 3/4" only $20, they may be worth looking into for your application!
