I think that is enough to the point. I want pix of both stockers and lifted waggoneers. Over on the toy board a hot swap is the front stock waggy or the 3inch rancho waggy springs and they flex like crazy SOA. I am curios about the rear sets if they flex as well or what?

Stock waggs with a custom springhanger

wag rear springs are sooooo soft. they flex like madmothafuckas. front springs are soft too, only prob is they are SUA stock, and the crossmember is mounted on the tranny-xcase adapter, so it interferes with travel.

eventually i'm gonna cut out my fenders and run q78-15s (35x11x15), no lift. then i might do a front SOA and rearch my rears, or flip the shackles. who knows...

what i'd really love to do is swap some wag springs onto a YJ and run an SOA. gawd that would rock!

On a waggy you invert the rear shackle for about 4-5" of lift.

What in the hell are you talking about?

One of my friends just took a wagoneer, took the body off, is stretching a CJ5 body to fit. What do you want to know? I answered your other question right above.

And it does have a J in it. FSJ.

What options are out there for rear lift springs? Are rancho 3" any good? Thought about doing the stock front springs on the toy and then maybee a lifted rear wagg spring? alot of people already run chev rears or a mazda style highbred or even yj springs, just trying to figure something "new" out. For a truck in the future

Too much for ya? 'K'
Who makes a rear lift spring that will match (both in lift and in flex) a soa with stock waggoneer front springs. Shackle reversal is not an option.

in all probability, no aftermarket springs are as soft as waggy rears. everyone i've talked to who has lifted their wag with aftermarket springs has complained bout the stiffness; wag springs are designed for an ultra comfortable road ride. wags are the original luxury SUV. coincidentally, this makes the springs really flexxy.

try AALs or blocks.

*gets out the broom*

don't make me use this, now get on back to the toy board. git! <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

3in would not compensate for an SOA up front...

typical FSJ SOA is like 6-7" in lift. do a 14 leaf AAL using two sets of waggy springs per rear side, you'll get a good 2" just from all the extra metal used.

Well sounds like any other rear spring conversion, gotta screw with it tell it fits. Thanx for the info. Just thought that someone would have some "flex" pix of stockers or aftermarket. Guess not, again only a few people responded. Must be a jeep thing <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
