    Any one found a set of junk yard springs that can be used on the front for lift?
    I was wondering about full size jeep front springs as they are SUA so they have a + arch to them. But I don't know about the length, and my local yard has none for me to mesure :crazy:

    Just read the "52" front spring swap" and it sounds VERY dooable, but how much lift is it good for? would it mach a shackle flip in the back?

    Shackle flip and maybe some zero rates depending on how much lift you get.
