Early CJ Springs 55-75

Just wondering what you guys are using for springs and how pleased you have been with them. I'm adding a winch and a big bumper up front, a couple jerry cans and a spare tire and hi-lift out back. So I want some added capacity.

Anyone using the JC WHitney HD springs? They are made in America!


They don't have much info on them - would be nice to know how spring rate differs from stock, and if they are military wrap.

How about lift springs from Superlift, Sky Jacker or Black Diamond? I don't want anything too flexy that will sag once broke in. Staying SUA.

Take a look at Holbrook Long Leafs - made over in Portland. Probably get more info on them over at the earlycj5.com place. They do make the skinny springs for us old schoolers. Holbrook Specialties - don't remember their web address.

a winch and heavy duty bumper dont weigh that much more than just a stock bumper up front. do you have a V8 swapped in? full cage? spare tire carrier rear bumper with jerry cans? snow plow? i think you will regret the HD springs.
