I have stock springs on the rear with spoa. I want 2" CJ or YJ springs with missing links for a bolt in instalation. What year Jeep do I get the springs from or what is the best rear leaf arangement without relocating the hangers?

CJ front springs are close to 3" longer than stock Zuk rears. You need some sort of frame extension to make it happen. Lots go with the missing link shackles.

Any CJ front spring will work, 1976+. Doesn't matter how many leafs are in the pack, take it down to 4 or 5 depending on the weight you want to carry. Stock CJs will give you around 2" with the shackles.

We've had folks use Scout springs before also, but they're stiff. (Older model) Celica springs are reported to work, haven't seen them in real life though.

I have a set of 2.5" YJ's for sale if you are interested....But to let you know they will lift you up 4" over the stock Yj spring wich lifts you a bunch over the stock spring.....But they flex up pretty damn good!!!
With the Zuk on 33" boggers on these springs i could pull up on a 40" bogger without lifting a tire!!

I used the two top leaves from a set of YJ 2.5" lifted Pro Comp springs and one leaf from the stock YJ leaf pack. It gave me another 3/4" lift over the stock 4 leaf YJs with a stiffer spring rate. I haven't flexed it yet but they look like they will do just fine. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
