Post YJ springs on Toy questions

Has anyone run or considered running the monoleaf YJ spring on a Toyota frontend? I may be able to get a pair and was wondering if they'll work well. Also, if I were to swap the rear leafs for Mazda or Chevy leafs, at what point will I have to fab up a traction bar? Anyone got some pics of traction bars that work well? Thanks...

your very informative reply has been noted. I think this is the same type of logic you used to draw your conclusion.

Place banana in your ear.
Observe that there is no alligators around.
Conclude bananas placed in ears keep aligators away.

I was thinking of doing the samething until a friend of mine put some on his YJ. The first trip we made to Moab he bent two of them. he ended up doing a spring over after only running the monlinear springs for about 3 weeks. I think you would be better off using some 4" YJ springs and a longer shackle. If you want to get real fancy you could build a drop front hanger and a custom shackle hanger and run some bommerange shackles like i did on mine.(sorry I don't have a digital camera so no pics.) depending on how you set up the shackles you can get some awesome flex out of it. but thats just my opinion. <IMG SRC="smilies/smokin.gif" border="0">

What mods were involved to get the springs to fit?

I found some info. It says to grind the front end of the spring to fit the hanger, but they had to drill the spring perches to get the axle relocated. Would those axle relocater plates work?

Look here "Smarty Pants", if you haven't realized it yet, when you reply to any post, it sends that post to the top of the order. Therefore it will get a response, as you responded (even though your response was off track).
