Bds,RE,OME yj Sua on my CJ?
I am getting ready to build a new frame, a copy of the one out of Jp. I should not have that much build time into it and since my old springs are getting pretty bad, I am going to replace them. At first I thought I would do a coil over until I realized that I don't want to run bigger than 35 inch tires so I do not really need it. I don't want SOA because I heard the ride quality is a lot worse than SUA so I decided to go with a good set of springs SUA for a YJ. Now I just don't know which would fit my needs best? I will be driving on the road about 45% of the time and probably 20% of that will be highway because top speed is only about 55. The rest will be very difficult trails lots of mud tree roots and slick rock, some snow wheeling and also some cruises up and down two lane roads. Basically I would prefer the best YJ springs for off-road durability and flex that still offer a safe ride down the highway. Price is always taken into consideration but I understand that I will get what I pay for. I am not going to run sway bars and will probably run bilstien shocks after I get my measurements when finished.
I currently run waggy axles shortened to 62 inches wms
I do have lockers front and rear so going around corners in the winter might be questionable
Do I want to buy the YJ lift kit If not is there a specific year for springs? and do I still want to run a shackle reversal?
Not looking for the magic answer but some advice from people who have done this swap or know somebody that has.
