1972 cj5 soa w 36's

just finished her yesterday. stock springs, soa both rear and front, extended brake lines, new spring perches, cv style rear driveshaft, new longer shackles up front to balance it out. she is defintley squirlley but to be expected with stock everything. She isnt that bad but I only drive her 30-40 mph on the street. Would not go on the freeway.

It shouldn't be squirrely at all, regardless of stock or not. It won't be as stable going around a corner at higher speeds, but it shouldn't be squirrely, unless your steering is still stock. Done correctly you shouldn't have any problem at freeway speeds.

I think the key phrase here is "Longer front shackles up front to balance it out" combined with who knows what angle the spring perches were welded on at. Get out a angle finder and find out what your castor angle is. I am willing to bet it is less than 4.

I have a feeling, this is going to be one for the scary steering site. WWW.scarysteering.com
