Get a set of rear, rear spring brackets and replace the front, front spring brackets with them. You have to replace the front spring u-bolt plates because of the wider springs.

There's a link that's been posted here several times to a write-up on earlycj5.com (you can try going over there and looking for the write-up). It's not as simple as krazy makes it sound...the info he gave you applies to '76 and up. You have to change all of your spring & shackle hangers and figure out the correct spacing for them when positioning them on the frame.
