Ok I have some info for u: cj5 wheelbase 1954-1971 81" from 1972-1983 83.5" CJ7 All 93.4" I tryed to read all the coments to asertain what springs you have but honestly got confused.. From the looks of it you have stock cj5 front and eather cj7 or yj or 1/2 ton rears. Stock arch. In any event All can be corected with the proper lift. I am sure some people will disagree with me but I feel the need to help.... Let me quallify myself . I own a jeep shop and have ben building jeeps for 30 years LOTS A JEEPS.... In my opinion you are runnin way to much tire but if that's what u are into here goes. Loose it all back to the stock frame. Clean your axals back to the tubes or better yet get a good set of 44s fom a full size wag.Or better better yet get a pair of 60s and narrow them, LOTSA TIRE. Use a yj 6" all spring lift and perches. I like skyjacker soft rides, but choose what you like. You can buy an soa kit from quadratech but I wouldn't . An soa is basicly perches and and U bolts.Buy the parts from any supplyer . This will gain you 5 1/2" . Now pay attension an SOA is not an easy system to set up .Done right it requires that you reclock the axal tubes to correct your steering angle . Unless you like bump steer. You must drill out the plug welds that secure the tubes to the center section of the axal housing and then reclock your tubes back to the origanal steering angle. Go find a stock jeep and coppy the angle. Your center section or pinion angle must be adjusted to match your lift. All this info can be found in a simple serch on the web or this site in much more detail. Now get a shackal reverce kit from Quadratech or 4wd hardware or wherever. This will gain you an inch in the front. With a 1 " shackal in the back you will now have 12&1/2" of lift with no body lift........... Don't forget the touque rods ya gotta have em, or you will dust your new drive lines. Now to the steering . if you arn't lucky to have perchased a high steer front axal , convert the one you have to a high steer drill out your steering arms to axcept a good 3/4" hyme joint convert your tye rod to sed hyme joint ends this will allow you to install them on top of the arms. Get a 6"drop pitman. and 2 steering stabalizers. Now don't go cheap on the shocks RS 9000s are your best bang for the buck on a monster like this. And last but not least I would reserch a torsionall disconect swaybar With hub disconect you'r gonna need it. When you install your NEW REAR SPRING PERCHES slide them back to the desired location and WELD THEM ON do not bolt them on. This will require a new crossmember in the rear 2x4" x .025 tubing is your best bet, add a reciever hitch to the cross member at this time. Tie your steering box down with a cross frame tie bar kit. Or build your own . A high pinion set of axals would be great if you can find them. now if your drive train is up to the task you will have a fairly safe MONSTER JEEP. If this all sounds expensive thats because altitude costs large......I Know that I have missed at least a dozzen thing that you need but i'm tired and it's getting late and by the way you may have noticed I cant spell worth beans sory old guy handycap. I wish you well and good luck with the build .......Boxcar :Owner Resurection Iron Works , We Build Nothing But Jeeps...........
