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.

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.
