The note above says this is for For late (non-greasable pivot eye) closed end style shackle suspension. My 56 CJ5 are the grease type. What are my options?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:

Does the kit include the angled wedges that fit between the spring and axle mount pad?

Those are not reproduced. A lot of vehicles don't even have them.

Would it be possible to get this kit with out the shock absorbers?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Absolutely. Give us a call toll free and we can go over it with you. Thanks

Does this come with new nuts to secure the shocks?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
No, this does not. That is a local hardware store item.

I have a '58 CJ5. I don't know if my shackles are non-greasable. I looked at them and there are not a zerk fittings on them. Does it make a difference? Is the eye bolt a different diameter? The only thing that does not get replaced is the leaf spring to to frame pivot eye bracket.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
A 1958 would have non-greasable shackles looking like part number: 916646

Does this suspension kit fit my 67 Jeepster V6 convertible

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
No, this is not for a Jeepster Commando. Please email mike@kaiserwillys.com or call us toll free and we can work it up. Ask for Mike M.

Which company manufacturers these overhaul kits?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
We use a number of different supplier to make up this kit. Please email mike@kaiserwillys.com and we can help answer any questions.

I understand that (2) of the Pivot Eye bolts have RH threads and (2) have LH thread. Which goes where?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
The shackle with the reverse threads goes in the front drivers side and the rear passenger side of the WIllys.

What do you mean by open end and closed end?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Its referring to the shackles. They are non-greasable with a plate on either side.

Can you configure this item with 38" front leaf springs and 44.5" rear leaf springs (999528 and 999529)?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Please call us toll free. Ask for Mike M. We will ID your vehicle and the leaf spring count you need. Thanks!

Are the springs and other components in this kit painted black?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, the leaf springs are painted black. The kit comes as shown in the photos. We recommend repainting after install.

What is the cost difference to upgrade to greaseable HD shackles and greaseable pivot bolts with the rest of this kit? Thanks

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
The CJ-5 didn't use greaseable style. I don't think it is really possible unless you are willing to drill out your hangers.

will this work in 55 cj5 with grease fittings pivot eye

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Please call us toll free and we can work you up a kit.

I have a 67 jeepster 4wd base model. Will this kit work for my car?

Willys Tech:
The Jeepster C101 Commando is different. Please call us toll free and we can work it up for you.

What is the deminsion of the springs from eye to eye. Also can you get this kit with heavy duty shackles.

Willys Tech:
39 eye to eye in the front and 46-1/8 eye to eye in the rear like original.

Do I need rubber busing with your shackle kits?

Willys Tech:
No, the shackles come complete.

I have a 1965 CJ6 longer wheel base will this set work

Willys Tech:
The CJ-6 used the same suspension as the CJ-5. The leaf springs and all the hardware is the same.

i am restoring a 1960 cj5 the existing shackles are not open ended like the ones pictured and one of my U bolts is wider than the rest due to the front axle being wider on drivers side. will this kit work for my jeep?

Willys Tech:
The CJ-5 used closed end shackles and that is what is provided in the kits. This will be correct for all the years 1955-65.

I am looking for the rubber bushings that go between the body and the frame, but cannot find them in the online parts catalogue. Where should I look. Thanks.

Willys Tech:
We sell indivial pads or do have complete body mounting kits available.

We're can I download or view the complete installation schematic

:
I just installed one of these kits on my 1956 Jeep Willy CJ5. The parts are of good quality, easy to install (about 5 hrs for me and I'm no mechanic). Jeep drives like new and added bonus of a little lift due to brand new leafsprings. One note...this kit did not come with the four cotter pins needed and original holes for bolts were 1/2" and new kit (looks like an upgrade) but requires a 5/8" hole so some minor drilling needed. Great kit.
Willys Tech:
I would check out our 'shop by diagram' section on the left hand side of our site. You can view complete schematics there. We also sell mechanics manuals.

You say this should cover 66 cj5. Is there the bigger u bolts to go over the axle outer pigs.

Willys Tech:
Yes, it will fit all the way thur 1971

this kit fits for cj5 1971?

Willys Tech:
Yes it will work perfectly for you.

Will this kit work for a 68 cj5?

Willys Tech:
Yes it will work perfect.

Is there a benifit between the 9 and 10 leaf and the 5 and 7 leaf. Does it raise up the vehicle or stiffer ride?

Willys Tech:
It really just depends if you want to do towing. They give the same height.

How much is shipping for this complete suspension overhaul kit for the 59-65 CJ 5

Willys Tech:
If you are in the 48 states it is free shipping.

How much does this pasts weigh?

Willys Tech:
The leaf springs are approx 35 pounds each and then there is another box with the hard parts that weights approx 30 pounds.

will this kit cover the 1966 cj-5 with the buick v-6 in it ,also ? thanks, jeff

Willys Tech:
Yes this should work just fine.

This kit comes with the 9 and 10 leaf springs. Mine only has the 5 & 7. What is the benefit of the larger spring packs? Is this kit offered with the smaller packs also?

Willys Tech:
We can do it with that leaf count if you like. Please call us toll free.
