!!!IF YOU USE ANY OF THE FOLLOWING, I CAN'T BE HELD LIABLE FOR ANY INJERIES OR DEATH THAT MAY RESULT FOR THIS!!!

In the rear you can use stock cherokee coils. use 4 spring purches from Lane automotive and weld them on the axle and the frame. the fab a LCA from the old forward spring hanger back to the rear under the axle. IF you make these with adjustable hyme joints you can adjust the pinion angle and axle positions later. The UCA is a little hader. Make a controle arm run from inside the framerail to some point on the axle. IF you have a 9" then you can weld to the center section, if not then make a bracket off the tube to stay as close to the center as possable. maby right at the end of the tube to the center section on each side. thats all you need...it will be about 7" of lift...so a SOA in front with 2.5 lift springs will work to leavel it. this is what a bud of mine did.
