Best springs would be custom ones tailored to your rig: National, Alcan, Deaver
Top tier off-the-shelf: RE Extreme Duty, Old Man Emu (these are both YJ retro-fits), Holbrook (longer springs, so you have to do some extra work)

We use Google as the Forum's search engine right now. Try it again and skim over the page. You should see that all the topics are from Jeepforum covering whatever topic you punched in.. ie (CJ** lift kit).. etc. Any words that are shorter than 4 letters need to have ** added to make them 4 characters long.

We have a local company here called Emco, and I've considered checking with them, but I honestly don't know what to tell them or what specifically to ask them for.

For you cats that have gotten custom made springs, what info did you walk in with in order to get what you wanted when they were done?

Lastly, has anyone heard of Emco? http://www.emcospring.com/

Thanks,
-Kevin
