what \"other than samurai\" leaves are you running?


Hi there,

i took the decision not to trade the sami for the TLC75 ...

but i only could convince me to keep it when i do some spring-work...

my idea is to swap looooonger leaves in the back... anybody done this?

What if i put in say 10" longer ones... i'd have to move the frame-spring mount forward. then i would have to re-drill the spring pack, to have a non-centered pack (otherwise the axle would be moved in one direcction)

any pointers, writups, links etc... on longer springs in the rear highly welcome

thx

alfred

CJ springs or YJ springs in the rear would be longer and better.
I'm going to be running the CJ springs in the rear with M/L's front and rear. Can't wait to get it on the Zuk.

Re: what \"other than samurai\" leaves are you running?

I think I've thought long and hard about that. I've had a whicked time getting rear springs to live under my hefty rear end. I think I've mentally committed to 6 leaf Wrangler springs AND a track bar. All put on at the same time. Not sure who's track bar yet, but I think I'm favoring Trail Toughs (??) mostly bolt on rear Wrangler kit.
Hope this helps
