Questions: My '52 M38 has 11 leaves on the rear. It served as a radio Jeep at some point in time and the radio was mounted on the left side which of course makes it lean that way.. Anyway I plan on replacing them sometime before spring '13. Can I replace the center bolt and add the two extra leaves from my old springs? Or would it even be necessary? Thanks

Im sure you could and it may help the lean. I always recomment replacing springs in pairs. These will give you plenty of support.

Questions: my 1947 cj2a has a slight lean to the left 9 leaf w/still arch to them,I read one time early jeeps have a natural lean to one side in the rear springs,is that true? how and why? thanks.
Question By: Anonymous on May 27 2012 12:00 AM
Yes all old Willys lean to the drivers side alittle. But it should be too much. Typically any leaf springs still on the vehicle that are that old are not going to be good any more.

Questions: How can I tell or measure if my springs have lost some arch on a 3B. The only thing I can find in manuals is that I should have 8 of ground clearance
Question By: Dave on May 24 2012 12:00 AM
They should have an arch to them. If they look flat then they are worn out. Please call us toll free. We can figure out what you have together. Thanks!
