Unhappy jeepdisease

I know all you tough guys are not interested in ‘comfort’ at all. Well, my wife does.
After a day of greenlaning and offroading she feels like shaken and rattled to pieces, and needs three days to recover. And frankly, so do I. So we consider to drive our Nissan pickup again, when the going gets tough.
Now, do I have your attention? This is to show you things are serieus, so you will have to help me solve this.
Someone suggested to remove the smallest leaf spring of each package. Does anyone know if this brings more comfort? Does this solve the problem, or will I start new problems?
Please let me know.

Yes, it should soften the ride... but it will probably lose some ride hieght. The springs will also tend to sag more quickly. Have you thought about a softer aftermarket suspention?

Jan, heb zelf achteraan de eerste twee veren van het pakket verwijderd en de CJ staat nu zachter dan een standaard pakket.Moet er wel bijzeggen dat de achterkant 3cm gezakt is, wat geen probleem is want die stond toch te hoog naar mijn zin.
Voor het zakken van de achterzijde tegen te gaan is het mogelijk om de achterste shackles te verlengen,komt de Jeep terug recht te staan en is toch zachter.
Vooraan niks uitdoen want dan zakt hij direct door met het gewicht van de motor.

vriendelijke groeten.
