Hi everyone. New Jeep owner as of a couple weeks ago. Bought an '88 YJ that needs a bit of TLC. My first big project will be to replace all the springs, shocks, steering stabilizer, and all the bushings. I'll probably wind up replacing the bearings and ball joints too, but haven't decided that yet.
I intend to use my Jeep, but not abuse it. Nothing truly outrageous, the occasional 4-wheeling when opportunity knocks.
With that said, I'm looking to replace the springs and wondered if it would be a good thing to put "5-leaf regular" leaves all around, or stick with the 4 in front and 5 in back. It seems like the front would be heavier normally so I'm not sure why they would be lighter.
And just to verify, the front and back are the same size, correct?
Thanks in advance!
