Xj leff springs

I Have a poroblum with my rear end, when i fill my jeep up wth people it sags and when i hit a bump or go on trails it rubs on my tires.

I think it might be my leaf springs but i want be 100% sure befor i throwe down 300 bucks.

When the jeep is unloded the leafs a still saging i dont think thats how it should be i have looked it up but stiil not sure so if some one can help me out that would be grate

No doubt, its your leaf springs.

You can get very good leaf springs that are better than stock for a little less than the $300 figure you mention. If you are comfortable turning a wrench and not afraid of a bit of a challenge, you can pretty easily change them out yourself as well. The job has its known issues and ways to solve them so search around this forum and google if you want to do it yourself. Not sure what a shop would charge for the job, I'd guess at least another $200-$300 but I really have no idea.

Stock XJ leafs are very weak and will eventually become totally flat and useless from normal road use. Add to that any kind of load/stress of of road driving of any type and the things are useless. Shame on Jeep for sending vehicles out the door with such weak rear ends if you want my opinion.

Wow, reading this made my brain hurt trying to figure out what in the hell you were trying to say !


Buy some new leaf springs, and U bolts. Install them yourself it should run right around $300-$350

When the Jeep is unloaded the leafs are still sagging I don't think that's how it should be I have looked it up but stillnot sure so if some one can help me out that would be great
You should consider "throwing down" 300 bucks for basic high school level English lessons.

Also, yes, it's your leaf springs that need replacement.
