Great thread I ate this info up gonna redo my suspension too but SOA with Dana 44s front and rear, ARB Lockers, Bilstein Shocks for sure, BigDaddy Tie Rod and drag link, and from all this info OME springs heavy all around like you did. I want the lift to be as small as possible so not sure of the shackles but I wll be lucky to keep the lift at 5" or less which is gonna require steering, brake lines, etc extra work to do this right from my research. I have my hands out to buy a Dana 44 from a 1976 CJ-7 still looking for a Waggy Dana 44. Once I get these I can start collecting all the other parts no kits for me all parts. I am mechanically inclined but I have never fabed before I wanna learn now is the time. This is my first Jeep a 1980 CJ-7 and I wanna do it right. Thanks again for all the info I have learned a ton from this thread.
