CJ-7 coil spring conversion

I got a question for you guys about a homade coil spring conversion or boughten kit. I have a 1980 CJ-7 jeep and as of right now it has stock leaf springs on it. What I am wanting to do, if its possible, is to get coil springs on the jeep. Really all I am wanting is to have mabe two foot or so of articulation up and down. If I can buy certain springs I will, but I dont know what to buy. I can fabricate the radius arms and I have some ideas how to connect the coil springs to the differencials. So all I really need to find and buy is the coil springs and shocks. I am trying to get by as cheep as I can but still do it the right way. I will appreciate any information you have for me. I don't want an extreme rock crawler, just a good trail jeep . Thanks again.

I dont know much about coverting to coils, but you should be able to accomplish what your looking to do w/ a 4"plus suspension lift and 4 long travel shocks. I could be wrong though Im not quite clear on what it it is you're looking to do.

A good place to look for a selection of coil springs (with many different spring rates) is a shop or vendor which deals in circle track racing......every area has several of these shops.

1979 CJ7 (YJ tub) full cage, Currie 9inch rear with Warn full float kit, detroit locker, 456 gears both ends, Lockrite in front, T 18 trans, 360, 040 over, Isky cam, 2 into 1 Flowmaster exhaust

I'm not as good as I once was....but I'm good once as I ever was.
