cj7 build. Tj coil rear? or Xj leafs? Whats your opinion?

Hey guys I'm building my suspesion on my cj7. Up front I am running yj leafs SOA. I've been intending to use Xj rear leafs out back for a couple reasons.

*stretch wheel base
*more travel
*soft ride
*easy to do

I guess the reason I ask is I already have some stock tj coils and enough heim joints to link it.

This jeep is being built for trail and just be leagal enough to be able to still drive it on the street without getting tickets.

I'm running 44/60's 37" tires and trying to keep a LCG.

Just want to get your opinions

If you have the ability coils are a much better setup, I don't see why not?

my vote goes for stock tj coils. Ballistic fab makes some good looking brackets for this.

I did XJ's and regret not going coils back then.

TJ coils if you can do it for the same price. The performance of a linked rear suspension is so far superior to the leafsprings that it is a no brainer if money is no cost.

You will eliminate spring wrap. Traction bar. axle hop. and have a cushy mushy cadillac ride.

You will have to bumpstop it correctly with the soft Stock TJ coils.
