Nice. I'm getting my IRO cpla front at the end of the month. I'm still tied between the 5.5" or the 7". I'm working on an HP44 for the front but I think that will be a while. Ill probably just get the 7" and wheel it on 35's till it breaks then start working on the axles. I still have to keep up with the other members in the local Jeep club.

Not sure if anyone remembers when I came in this thread sayin I threw a rear spring and broke my rear swaybar in a taco bell drive through or not... But when I did, I posted pics of the after math and was told I DID NOT THROW THE SPRING IN THE DRIVE THROUGH! Well, I put the spring back the next day and haven't touched it since! I figured... It's been sitting for over a week... I'm gonna take it to 7-11!! Sure as ****... On my way home as I pull IN THE DRIVE WAY.... I hear BANG!!!! Guess what... Lost a rear spring while not wheeling!

Don't say it can't happen when not flexing! It just did to me a second time! Here's a pic...

I fail to see why you didn't go to the parts store to get some exhaust pipe and extend the spring post...Am I wrong for thinking that?

Lol your not wrong in thinking that at all! I didn't get around to it.

I'm just saying that it's not impossible to throw a spring when not flexed out on a trail like I was told.

It is impossible if your suspension is built correctly. If you have no post to hold the spring, it will fall out. If you have a post, it is impossible to get the spring past it driving through a drive through.

There is a post. The stock post. That I heard can hold the spring in place even with a BB spacer puck. But like I said originally, with no rear sway bar, you can throw a spring on the streets
