My '82 CJ7 runs a SOA lift up front and 1/4 elliptical out back. I'm using some heavily modified Rancho CJ springs up front (they're flat now). I've got 36" TSLs, a Dana 44, an 8274, and a 350 for weight up front.

I was planning on putting some YJ springs in (either 5 leaf stock packs or some OME packs) but now I've stumbled across some stock wagoneer springs. Which is the better way to go? Will I get any lift from the stock wagoneer packs?

Combine leaves from all the packs you got and you might turn out with some good packs just my two cents. <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

Yep I could do that but the question was - Will Wagoneer springs give me any lift over flat springs?

BTW mister hardcore wheeler - You've got a Dana 30 front not a Dana35.

I don't think you will get any lift from the stock waggy springs since most of them are already flat with the stock motor of the waggy. If you want some lift Waggy springs, you can use the Rancho 44044s which are 2.5" lift springs. I have these on my FJ40 with the stock motor (about 200#s heavier than a 350) and an 8274 on the front bumper. There is still some arch left in them, but I have not wheeled them yet.

I switched to waggy springs (7 leaf-but not the HD ones) and they flexed so well that my tires ate up my fender wells. So I then put in the Rancho 44044's...now it doesn't flex for $hit. However, I have only been out wheeling on them once, and they are 6 leaf. I plan on pulling one of the leaves out before next time. BTW, I also have a Chevy SB in my Scout.

Well my .02 are pretty simple here. You have a 1/4 ellip out back so the rear flexes pretty well. You want the front to be as close to that as possible. I would scrap the Wranglers and Wagoneers adn get some F150 springs. they are LONg and SUPER soft. Put these on and you will get some lift about 2-3". Your front will flex VERY well, so you should eb happy. I am running hybrid Wrangler springs right now with only one spring clam they flex like crazy, but I tend to bend the main leaf quite a bit. I would say unless you want to build a set yourself, get the F150's
