At last, Im getting rid of the dangerous shackles. And the leaf springs too, you can see the width of the leaf springs are almost 1 - 1.5inch!
Ive broken these springs 2 times before
So I ordered 4" lift kit with nitro shocks, and stock height shackles.
So it started off like this, but the intoxicating feeling of "add to cart" button struck me, I dont remember the next steps!!.
....... then I added :
1.Skyjacker steering stabilizer
2.Dana-Spicer CV shaft
3.1" Daystar body lift
4.Replacement sway bar and mounts (mine didnt have a sway bar!!)
5.WarriorProducts sway bar link quick disconnects
6.MSD OffRoad Ignition system
7.Team Rush upgrade components (dist cap, rotor, wirings, adapter)
8.MSD 2F blaster Ignition coil
9.Bestop rotary latch paddle handle
10.Door strike pin set
As you can see, Ive terrorized my wallet....strangely I dont feel any guilt. Wait after the wife sees the credit card statement!
My jeep is a big mixture of jeeps from YJ to preCJ, you can read this if you're interested .Thread about my CJ of unknown origin
And my current shackle and spring setup.
Today, Ive taken the car to the mechanics, and Day1 comes with Problem No1, the spring brackets, plates and hangers arent wide enough!! That might be the preCJ part of the car. The springs I ordered are stock width 2" fronts and 2.5" rear. New brackets plates and hangers are on the way. Now we'll need to do some welding!
So here are the parts that arrived
Other parts are shipped from the US, yesterday.
Hopefully this is the last problem Ill encounter.... progress photos will come soon!
Id love to hear your thoughts, about the car, the parts and new ideas of its origin.
