'82 Wagoneer questions...

I'm fixing up my '82 wagoneer and need a few answers.
First, where can I find out what emission equipment I can pull and how to do it?

Second, what are some great shocks I can put on to give me a nice small lift? I have Waggy sag...

Shocks dont "lift" only the springs do that. Shocks control the movement of the axle movement up and down and dampen it. To address the "Wag sag" there are 2 ways I can think of, an add-a-leaf to the the driver side spring pack, or lift springs. The lift springs are the better choice IMHO. Now for the smog, if its working properly by law it needs to stay on there. But since we all like more power, the air pump I believe is below the powerstearing pump. I cant help you with how to remove it, so sorry. Hope this helps a bit.

Regarding the wag sag I just put spring overload shocks made by Gabriel on my 89 and it fixed the sag. I needed new shocks anyway so I killed 2 birds with one stone

I successfully removed all smog stuff from my '82 Waggie. Do you have the 360 V8? If so I would be glad to share what I did and what vacuum lines need to stay. There is one that is real important. If left off you will get 5 mpg guaranteed. Otherwise mine has been doing great and the engine compartment sure looks a lot better. Let me know if you want my input.

The spring overload shocks brought it back to it's original stance . That being said I probably only had about 2" of sag. It is a firmer ride than Jeep intended it to be but still floats down the road pretty nicely with no sag!

I would live to hear and find out what you did...I do have the 360 V8. I don't even know where to start!
I checked out those shocks and I think I'm going to order them...I need new ones and want to boost the sag.

I've gone to the spring shop and they re arched my original ones about 20 years ago and they are still up.

Do you need to smog check in your area?
