what about new waggy springs in a soa application? im trying to figure out what legnth coil over shocks to order for the front. i think i need 7"s of lift over stock so there will be enough room for a set of 38" tsl/sx tires.

since this is about waggy springs.... would it be of any benifit to use the waggys up front over YJ springs? i know you can get a little wheelbase out of it but are there any other benifits?

I'm currently redoing all me front spring hangers and am thinking about designing it to use the waggys for the extra spring length

you have to be careful moving the front axles forward. i know you can get an inch but a friend of mine moved his forward and also had to move his steering gear box forward also.

Thumbs up

I used old Wagoneer springs up front, and moved my shackels rear. Got about 8" of lift. 36" tsls were rubbing in front before I got the sawsall out. Running the springs backward moves the axel forward about 1.5". Great mod, all I have to do is place my fromt shocks, not sure how yet.
