If under 6 degrees positive you can get some steel shims - I have 2 degree shims on my CJ7 - and bolt them to the spring pack using new bolts.

When all that is worked out, you can start spending REAL money on that 5. Fun stuff!
this made me feel so excited, you made my day buddy

Research "high steer" before you go that route. It's not quite that simple. Very do-able, but a little cost to SOA to do it right.

I am thinking, based on the pix. that going SUA again would likly be cheaper/easier than fixin the SOA set up to be correct.
I think that the old owner just welded block on top, got longer shocks and drive shafts, added a drop pitman arm, and just left the rest.

scary stuff for sure.

If it were mine I'd take it back to SUA. and run 3-4" lift and 33's 35's are taxing on the stock axles, and a little out of proportion on a CJ5.

We DO need more pictures to really tell. We have to see how things are attached, what is still left to work with ect.
