Questions & Answers
Questions: The 10 leaf spring I received today comes with a bushing in the front eye that doesn't appear to come out. This bushing makes the eye way too small to accept the shackle. Is this bushing meant to be knocked out or did I receive the wrong part? If it's meant to be removed, please give me some guidance on how to do that.

They just press out in a vice. use a socket the size of the bushing and a larger socket for the other size for the bushing to drop down into when you use the vise.

Anytime you replace the original, worn out springs with new ones, they will give you about an 1" - 1-1/2" lift. Thanks!

Questions: I have a 1953 CJ3A with 10 leaf front springs that need replacing. Does the 8 leaf have a smoother ride than the 10 leaf? What is the advantage on one over the other?
Question By: Anonymous on Feb 15 2013 12:00 AM
Really either is pretty good. If you are towing go with 10 leaf. If not I usually stick with 8 leaf. They both sit at the same ride height.

Questions: What is the part number for leaf spring tie bolts? Are they the same for front and back?
Question By: Danny on Dec 18 2012 12:00 AM
I think you are referring to the bolt that goes thru the center of the packs to hold the assembly together. That is just a local hardware store item. Make sure to get hardened.

Questions: I have a 42MB need new springs all the way around but would like to get two more inches of clearness for a little taller tire any suggestions?
Question By: JD Witzel on Jan 3 2012 12:00 AM
You should get appox 1-2 inches of extra height from these from where you are sitting now. Your old leaf springs loose their arch so these set you back up to stock height.
