Hey guys its almost time to change out the springs on my cj they are old and sagging, I was wondering what size springs they are. I didn't put the lift on it I was the po but it is a rough country, and it appears to also have a 1in body lift here are some pics, im guessing the springs are 2 1/2in, this is how it sits with 33's and no tc drop kit also

isn't there a part# or anything on the springs for reference?

orange80cj7 04-27-2013 01:10 PM

Nope, all that's left is on one of them the word rough and the other country haha

If they are 2-1/2" wide, could be YJ springs.

Didn't think of that... How much lift does yj springs add into a cj?

orange80cj7 04-27-2013 04:31 PM

Just went out and measured and sure enough they are 2 1/2 inches

Front and rear are both 2.5". Stock CJ rears (76 an up) are 2.5" wide. Only the fronts are 2" wide.

orange80cj7 04-28-2013 02:37 PM

Checked again and only rears are 2.5 front is 2, so they are cj springs, if I wanted to stay away from doing a tc drop how much lift could I go from the springs?

I have no additional input. I just wanna say that it's cool seeing a neighbor on here.

But It also has a one in body lift, so should I find some 3 in springs or trash the bl and go all suspension?

RDH 04-28-2013 05:59 PM

One inch BL should be fine, nothing more than a heavier duty body bushing. You plan on trail riding this Jeep?

Yes nothing extreme just around Ocala and river ranch, but would 5in of total lift make my 33's look to small?
