Add a leaf

My son has a 99 XJ and the rear springs are sagging significantly. He does not have alot money so I was wondering if I could use an old spring that I have cut the ends off of it and install it in the leaf pack like a Add-A-Leaf. The springs that I have are significantly thicker than the stock leaves. If you think it will work where in the pack should it be installed.

Thanks

I have no clue what the leaf is out of. It was here when I moved into my house. Upon closer inspection it is a single leaf that has broken in half. The whole leaf, both parts together, is about 50 inches long.

You can buy a set of S-10 leafs from the junkyard and build a set of bastard packs for around 50.00, that would be the best option in your situation. An AAL or a set of shackles won't help much with already sagging leafs.

There is a great deal of info here -> http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/t...ks-tsbs-89273/

S-10 leaf springs are very inexpensive, easy to find at the junkyard or on CraigsList, and can boost saggy leaf packs. The local U-Pull-R-Parts sells leaf springs for $11 each.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.
