I am working on a buddies '74-CJ-5 it has D30 front,D44rear 304V8, T15 I believe, and a Dana20t-case.. I have a set of 2.5"Lift SUA springs for a CJ-7. I want to leave it SUA, Does anyone make hangers ect..to do something like this or will everything be custom. I can do either just looking at options before I start.

I coverted my CJ5 springs over to CJ7's a few years ago. However, when I did mine, I also did a shackle reversal (Warrior produced) and the front hangers were part of that kit. As for the rears I just bought shackle mounts for a 78 CJ7, measured according to the spacing difference and welded them into the new location.

Anyplace that deals in Jeep parts will have standard, factory issue spring and shackle hangers. Like GRIDWND said, just measure a '76-86 CJ (can be a 5 or 7) for the spacing and weld them on the '74. You're also going to need new spring plates since the springs are wider.

I seen an ad in one of the mags awhile back for a company that made the hangers,shackels,shock mounts,spring pads etc. But I can't find the mag or another ad now. Does anyone out there know this place?
