JEEP WRANGLER LEAF SPRING PROBLEM

1995 Jeep Wrangler • 147,000 miles

I just replaced the motor and transmission in my 95 wrangler and was thinking about replacing all four leaf springs because they are flattening out. Do you think that it is a good idea will replacing the leafsprings add any benifet to the car?

DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR

BENEFITS (A FEW)

YOUR RIG WON'T SQUAT WHILE JUST SITTING THERE

YOUR RIG WON'T SQUAT MORE, DURING TAKE-OFF

YOUR RIG WON'T REALLY SQUAT BIG-TIME WHILE TOWING SOMETHING

IT WON'T BE A BOUNCY

YOU CAN PURCHASE SPRINGS THAT NOT ONLY WILL GET YOU BACK TO NORMAL, BUT YOU CAN GET THEM THAT WILL ALSO "LIFT" YOUR JEEP (LET'S SAY MAYBE 1-3 INCHES. DOING THIS, IT'S GENERALLY CALLED A "SPRING LIFT")

THIS KINDA LIFT USUALLY DOES NOT INVOLVE CHANGING OTHER STUFF. LIKE STEERING COMPONENTS.I DID A 2 INCH SPRING LIFT ON MY '77 CJ 5. PRIOR TO DOING IT, MY ORIGINAL SPRINGS WERE BIG-TIME FLAT, ON THE VERGE OF BEING INVERTED

WHEN I INSTALLED THE NEW SPRINGS. IT REALLY WAS LIKE DOING A 4 INCH LIFT, FROM WHAT I WAS USED TO IT BEING. LIKE A NEGATIVE 2 INCH SAG!

PICS ARE OF MY '77 CJ 5 ("MR. JEEP") AND MY '46 WILLYS ("WILLY")

I LIKE IT!

YOUR TURN. WHATCHU THINKIN'?
