  2. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    Has anyone for any reason seen XJ leaf springs where one side was over axle and the other was under axle? I am looking for an XJ replacement since I sold my last one, and I agreed to meet with the owner of a '97 on Craigslist. After looking at the pictures more it looks like they have the...

    I'm replacing the worn out rubber bushings on my CJ7 with some new prothane bushings from energy suspension. In the instructions, it says that the old metal shell from the rubber bushings must be removed but it doesn't say anything about replacing it with a new one. Do the bushings go straight...

    So, I'm upgrading my leaf springs and have a silly question... which end goes to the frame and which goes to the shackles? A: second leaf / double loop goes all the way around the bushing. B: second leaf only goes 1/4 way around. Does A or B go to the shackle? My current springs look the...

    I've searched all over, but can't find the answer. Might not know how to ask correctly...but: I'd like to add a leaf to this leaf pack from Crown: http://www.crownautomotive.net/Cherokee-Suspension-Parts/4886186AA.html The clips aren't like the ones that were on my stock pack, so I'm not sure...

    so i found a set of 2.5" front springs for my 01 for $75 a set of 2" spring isolators for $28 of those two above (this is not long term, just testing a small lift first, then ill go 6"+ down the line) but which would be better. im on a budget but i know cheap can also mean gonna break in a...

    I have a tie rod that just barely rubs on the leaf spring. The tie rod is new but the old one had the same issue. This is on my 85 CJ7. Any suggestions on how to create some space between the spring and the tie rod? I got the CJ7 a few months ago and do not know any history on the vehicle.

    So I began to disassemble my 1980 CJ7 this weekend, and for the life of me I cannot get the bolt out of the front spring rear mount. I am thinking its just rusted to the sleeve in the bushing, though half a can of liquid wrench had no effect. I am worried about "nudging" it too hard and bending...
  11. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    About 3-4 months ago I swapped out the POS stock leafs on my 99 XJ Sport. I bought the Old Man Emu "Heavy Duty" ones that (according to the specs) add 2" lift over stock. Which, if you look at the thing when it's sitting on level ground it definitely looks like it's doing a stoppy. So that...
  12. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    okay, so I decided I want to get rid of the dang shackles and get a new set of leaf springs. The shackles give me close to if not more than three inches of lift, so I assumed that everything would still work the way It does now with these springs. I spent yesterday taking off the front drivers...
  13. Jeep CJ Forum
    For all of you have messed with your suspension i have a question. my leaf to frame bushings seem to not have full contact. the mount looks like its bending in to touch the bushing as well. just wondering if i should throw a washer in between there. take a look for your self...

    I just installed a bds 4" lift on my 1979 cj7. I have 33" tires and when I turn to the left my tire rubs on the front right leaf spring. No problems turning to the right. And ideas would really help. Thank you.

    A set of stock replacements from quadratec if you don't intend to lift it.
  16. Jeep CJ Forum
    So i'm looking at putting some bigger tires on my 1969 cj5. i was wondering what options i had to put 33" or possibly 35" tires on. i have read that a 4" lift will allow for both and that a 3" leaf spring lift will allow for 33". what is the a budget friendly way to get the lift i need to allow...
  17. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I just read in a magazine about a cheap junkyard build where you use leaf springs from other vehicles (not always jeeps) to add to flat ones on your vehicle for cheap lift. Has anyone ever done this or have any thoughts on it? I am contemplating giving it a shot
  18. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    The nut welded on the inside of the frame broke free. The bolt is free floating in the hole. What have others done in this situation? Here's my plan: Cut a rectangle on the bottom of the frame rail, but leave the black lines intact. Cut in the middle of the rectangle, and fold the two flaps...
  19. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I need to stop looking under my XJ. :brickwall Went to use a wire wheel under it today and its worse than I thought. The rust has spread from the rockers, to the underside paneling and onto the rear leaf shackles. The frame rails are all good so I think I'll need to cut out the shackles and...
  20. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I just bought this YJ and I've been wondering what exactly is the yellow thing attached the the rear leaf springs. It's on both sides. I've heard two things so far. 1) That they're towing brackets so the suspension doesn't get damaged by big loads (even though the yellow things are not connected...
