help needed for sourcing cj-5 aprings!

i have a friend that is rebuilding a cj-5, he is having trouble finding stock no lift springs. where would be a good place to start looking?

also if anyone has a set/pair i'm sure he would like to buy them if shipping is reasonable.

JC Whipme used to carry stock replacement CJ springs. 4WD Hardware and Quadratech probably do too. Find a local spring shop (think big trucks) and they can probably get them too.

Don't expect USA made though.

It seemed to me that the only people making and marketing stock springs was crown. I've read mixed reviews. Everyone I've talked to has said to talk to a spring shop and have them made.

It would help to know the year of the Jeep. 55-75 is different from 76-83. I bought a set of springs from General Spring in Kansas City and was impressed with the quality for the price. Their springs are made in South Africa, interestingly enough.

Triangle Spring in Pennsylvania made my stock replacements (made in USA)

X2 on local spring shop. They can rebuild the old springs, replace broken leaves, re-arch, etc. Lot of mixed reviews as to rebuild or replace springs. I 'spose it all depends what the use of the CJ will be. My son had the springs rebuilt for his '51 Chevy pickup restoration, everything was perfect. If I was building a crawler where I wanted to climb waterfalls, I would use new. God bless.

The recommendations would be the same regardless of what year it is. You're not posting this as a wanted ad, so it really doesn't matter.

Not all places offer springs for both early and late, hence the reason I asked for a year range.

"Any CJ5 or CJ7 fronts from 76-86".

these are exact words from they guy in need of said springs.

i think i may have misunderstood the guy when he said cj5 rebuild. i think he needs these springs for a sammy build. i'm not positive as to what they are being bolted to, however, i am positive as to the parts needed. 76-86 cj front springs.
