Exclamation yj spring options

so I just got my yj to ride height after the soa, bought the jeep and wanst sure what springs were on it, I think 4 in, cuz it was on 35's. so of corse after the soa it was huge, also did 14bolt and a 44 with 5:13's and a detroit in the rear. I got 39.5 irocks and it clears them pretty easy. I can already tell the springs arent going to flex much and its going to be a rough ride. so I was thinking what if i put stock yj springs on it with highline fenders? what do you guys think?? give me some more ideas, im keeping the tire sixe the same and dont want to comp cut ( keepin it street legal, kinda) any imput would help, also want it to flex crazy...

your on the right track kinda. stock yj springs with a soa will give you room for your 39.5's with your highline front fenders but you will have to cut the rear up as well. however, an soa will cause severe axle wrap and will toast your springs. .02

You can have the lift springs dearched. It'll give you a little bit of wheelbase and they flex really good. I did it with a set of Fabtech springs. Does great. I'm on 40" LTBs.

I'm rolling on stock YJ rears up front with a double main leaf and stock flipped XJs in the rear with a double main leaf. Anti-wrap bar in the back and shackle reversal with shackle through the frame on the front. ~4-5" lift over stock height on 39" BFGs, not running much uptravel and flexes great. Pnly have to replace a spring every now and then and they get beat on fairly good.

Which front springs are you running "Fischer89"? and it looks like they mounted to the stock perches, is that right?

It's your vehicle, so it's your decision in the end..


If it was me, I'd combined the two set for one.
Run which ever leaf is beefier for the main leaf, Then cut the ends off the other and run it right under the main leaf.
Stagger the longer leafs, and leave the small ones out. To high, remove the 4" pack smaller leafs.


2nd the need of a rear traction bar.

I am putting together a set of stock springs using an add a leaf for the Chevy 63" springs. I will have to cut the AAL to fit but it should give an inch or so of lift and still flex like crazy. I have stock YJ springs on now. The fronts are reverse arched (looks like the old GM semi eliptical springs) and the rears are brand new but have settled to the point I am close to jamming my rear drive shaft and ruining it (again ). I got the idea from a guy at the local 4WP and he said they work great....................for a while.

They are military wrap Fabtech springs for a YJ. I added two stock leafs to each pack. And yes the front is in the stock mounting position. By dearching the springs it moved the front forward right at 2". I'll try to get some better pics of the springs and shackles if you want.
