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?
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")
