Well here's where I'm at so far, 2 in. YJ BDS springs, 76-86 rear CJ hardwear, 6 in. 3/8 flat stock shackles (stock is 4 in. so 1 in lift, that and it evens out the mounting area of the spring). However I'm concerned that it will not be enough of an angle, I was thinking of kicking the mounts in more before I blaze them into the frame so I would have more droop in the shackle, but whats everyone think, this is a DD . Will I have a better ride and better performance off road if I go with a bit more angle? I had my Mom and Pop stand on the rear cross member for me to simulate a tank of gas, tank skid, bumper, and spair tire carrier without a tire, it kicks back a little more but not much. In these pics the rear is supported by the jack stands under the springs, providing an almost true to life angle, minus the above parts and point surface pressure of the spring pad, however the jack-stand pad should provide a semi-accurate pressure point.
