Questions: How do I know if my suspension is sagging? What can I measure? Even if it’s not sagging, is there a spring that will get me maybe an inch or so lift beyond factory height? I can send a pic.
Question By: William on Aug 24 2019 12:20 AM
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and I can see what you have going on and send you pics of my CJ-2A as well to compare.

Questions: I have a 1948 CJ2A with a small block Chevy. Question 1 Will the 10 leaf front in your restoration kit keep the Shackle perpendicular to the frame ... don't want to loose any height?? Question 2 Will the shocks in your restoration kit keep up with the extra weight of the small block Chevy? Thanks for your help!
Question By: kevin on May 31 2016 3:10 AM
Yes, the 10 leaf set up and the shocks will be more than adequate for your Jeep.

Questions: What is the number of leaf springs for the front and the rear? My CJ3a has 10 in the front and 8 in the rear. Will they be the same number of leafs?
Question By: Hibaldone on Mar 30 2015 12:00 AM
We typically do 8 in the front and 9 in rear for the best ride. If you like we can do 10 in the front at no extra cost too.

Questions: I have a 49 CJ3A and need to replace suspension. I see you sell the whole suspension kit, do you have something to give a lift. I would to give it a little lift say 2/2.5.
Question By: Kevin on Dec 10 2012 12:00 AM
You will probably get about 1 to 1.5 lift on this kit because your old leaf springs have most likely lost their arch thru the years and are now flat. This kit is the way to go.
Answer By: Willys Tech on Dec 10 2012 12:00 AM
Questions: I noticed there are two different spring options for the front of a 1947 CJ2A. Is the 10 leaf option used for after market engines? If I use the 10 leaf option on the original motor, will it make a rougher ride? Also, are the quality of the leaf springs in the overhaul kits the same quality if ordered individually?
Question By: Darren on Jul 20 2012 12:00 AM
You can use either the 10 or 8 leaf set up. I typically go with the 8 leaf.

Questions: I bought this Suspension kit from you. How do I remove the bushing on the leaf springs to install the new Shackle kit ? thanks.
Question By: Bob on May 4 2011 12:00 AM
The easiest way is to take a socket that is the size of the bushing on one end of the leaf spring. Take a larger socket on the other side that is the size of the leaf spring. Put into a vise and squeeze alittle. The smaller socket will push the bushing into the larger socket. It will just fall in with little effort.
