Yup.. They are at the shop .. I will try to remember to bring them home..
THey are ZJ up country springs.. That will raise your front about 2.5 inches. Maybe 3 since they are designed to hold up a V8..
I also have some leaf springs at my house we could probobly do an add a leaf to your rear.. To even you out..

Carl

wooo hoo!! that would be sweet dude. Smile
i will catch you back on it of course. I know i havent been able to make many of the 2bb functions, but i hope ya'll still have a good opinion of me

regarding your coil conversion>
i guess that would be up to what kind of ride you want. given the solid axels the articulation should be about the same, but coils are more "accurate" so to speak.. which gives them the smoother ride. Also, leaves act on a load linearly as opposed to a coils logarithmic type of reaction to load.. ie.. as a coil compresses it gets "softer." A leaf on the other hand tends to keep a steady resistance to load regardless of compression.

then again.. i could be wrong.
im just a guitar player. Mr. Green

just my opinion, but id never give up coils for leafs! i dont think many would either. thats why there are so many aftermarket leaf to coil conversions for the yj. you dont see any coil to leaf conversion for the zj or tj!! hope this helps.

I was just blowing off some steam.. A buddy of mine.. (Locked Up) is converting his XJ front to leafs and I have been having death wobble that I cant seem to beat.. SO I get mad and say I am going to get rid of them..

Just talking out the rectum.. You know..
