Is the common bending/breaking issue typically only on the front springs?

Yep. I run double mains in my rear packs as well (xj springs however). The added support on the leaf makes. Huge difference. My buddy actually bent his rear leaf just last trip. Was backing up partly up a ledge and the front part of the spring (single main) decided it wanted to bend under the pressure. Slid his axle forward and the leaf looked like it came from the reject spring rearch pile. He was going easy.

I'm not sure if they are still being made or not but I was going to get a set of full traction 0" SOA springs but they were back ordered for 6 months at the time. If I remember right they have 8 leafs for the rear and 6 for the front.

Thanks but I don't believe they are still available. In all my searching I have yet to find anyone selling them.

With 36"s, I think you would want the extra 1.5". I'm soa on 1.5" re's on 35"s and I clear my standard height garage just fine. I may not when I go to 37"s though. With 35"s I almost want more room for up travel, but I really don't want the higher center of gravity. I have really decent droop though on the re 1.5"s. The blue on is mine on 1.5" re's. http://s13.postimg.org/ptdz4jaev/image.jpg http://s13.postimg.org/dssj3t307/image.jpg

I don't know why the first one is upside down. Just do a keg stand and check it out.

Full Traction has gone done the toilet it seems. They have terrible customer service, they never reply to questions via email. I have been asking for a catalog from them for sometime but never get any replies.

Are the rears factory height or lift xj springs?

The stock front springs from a Wagoneer measure about the same length as a YJ spring with a off centered centerpin which gives a 2" stretch. They also provide a 2" lift
