Ok my my jeep has a 4 inch suspention lift that i put in to replace the junk that the PO put in and it rides real nice not like a yj on a junky pieced together setup like it had b4 but real smooth like I would expect from something built proper like I've done from the lessons i learned here on the forum cuz i do care like the guy before me said its ur call if you want it to ride nice jus sayin it doesn't have to ride harsh im not sure of the damage to ur springs so its hard to say if putting them back will help i think it will get worse/stiffer but u said you don't care.

Welcome to the forum, Abbott. Tons of info on here to help you decide how to proceed with your build.

Ouch, my head hurts now... Abbott407 welcome to the forum. Please try to put some punctuation in your threads... a period or comma would break up the monotony...

Regarding your springs, it wouldnt hurt to sdd the leafs... but then if you dont really care about the ride whats the point. As you say, you "dont care bout the smoothness of the ride its a yj"...

ok thanks for the reply i may just leave them out. And let them wear out and put new ones under it.i do care bout the ride but either way i know it will still be bouncy. thats what i was refurring too. i have learned alot from these forums. dos and donts what would be some good recommendations for springs. it is my DD but i do take it off road some. nothing extreme though.

Simmer down dwarf... It was about punctuation not grammar, and I answered his question... A little constructive criticism never hurt anyone.

A YJ doesn't have to be a bucky horse of a ride.

Save up your money, let your existing springs die, then get a good set of RE, Zone, BDS or OME springs with quality shocks. When you're done, it'll feel like a completely different vehicle.
