stretch

Thats unfortunate the project got put on hold. I actually used RE 3.5" springs in SUA set up. Might have to pull a leaf out to soften it up. Was just curious what people that did the stretch did for rear driveshaft..Heard of people using front cherokee in the rear, but figured someone might have discovered a junk yard rear driveshaft that works.

thanks

Just curious.. Why would you spend the money on Alcans when you could go coil over for not much more if any...

This is a smart move, why waste all the tabs on axle's that from sounds of it your going to remove for bigger one's.
I was close to a 3 link front and for my case it came down to money for the link ends. You it sounds like the right axle's.

When your ready with the right axle's then do it right, once.

This is what your shackle hangers should look like for an XJ spring stretch on a YJ, front and rear. If you use the ruff stuff perches you will have problems with the shackle hitting the frame at full droop.

I was worried about the ruff stuff hangers causing the shackles to hit, they just don't look like they belong on the back of the frame but underneath instead. Thanks for making that set for me! I can't wait to get them welded on and get the new springs under her.
