Alcan/Deaver springs

Going to do a spring under on my YJ.

Thought about the SOA; However combined with the tube fenders, crusher panels/flares and opened wheelwells. Plus a 1 inch BL to clear the NV4500 and the Atlas it is simply going to be to tall to run 35`s. Also the CG is going to be way higher then I want.

So I am looking at doing an approx 4" spring under using Alcan`s or Deavers combined with a set of Bilsteins on each corner. The springs will be custom made to match the weight of the YJ and all the add ons without being overly stiff.

Anyone offer an opinion on the spring brands ?

Be ready for some work! Those SUA's are a lot of work on them Wrangla's! Its real hard to get them springs under them axles. Just be sure to bolt up the springs and then slide the axles in from the side. Thats the easiest way!

I have been running Deavers for a number of years.(SUA) I really like them. Great ride on road and they flex real well offroad. I have Bilstein 5100 front and 5125 rear. IMO it rides like a TJ.

Deavers are great but for the cost you could have all the stuff to link you rig including shocks.

Last I heard (when I asked Deaver), was they stopped doing custom stuff so much, unless the project caught the guys interest or the price was right. They had a couple production jobs and were keeping busy with that. If you're local, cruise by. Their barn is cool
