Same problem different jeep. I have a 1954 M38A1. The springs in the 923418 kit are too long. I had to use my one good spring and replace my broken spring by cutting the 923418 spring with a Dremel.

Questions: I have an early CJ-2A, I bought this drag link repair kit. I can't fit the parts in the link. 1) The springs bottom out before I could put a cutter pin in. 2) On the back side, I put two little plates in the bottom, even with that, the steering arm interferes with the drag link side. It is as if I should put the spring in the bottom but is not what is recommended.

Questions: I purchased the drag link repair kit for my 49 cj3a and installed it. on the end that attaches to steering box when i tighten the screw in order to get it in far enough to insert the cotter pin the knuckle is really tight, is this correct or have I overtighten it?
Question By: kevin on Mar 13 2013 12:00 AM
It should be really tight but not enough to grind and cause wear on your ball.
Answer By: Willys Tech on Mar 13 2013 12:00 AM
The kits come with extra hardware. Make sure each end has at least 1 spring and a cupped surface against ball. Tighten but make sure not grinding.
