I know I have to replace the shocks in the rear, but I was also thinking about the sagging leaf springs. What years would fit? My dad has a salvage yard and I could probably find some there..I just want to know what other vehicles would have springs that would work. Now the front of the Jeep has coil springs and a shock behind the spring. Now whenever the time comes that I go to change the front shocks will I have to secure the coil spring? Just curious. I'm off Thursday and Friday and plan on checking the yard..also I have to look for a fan clutch.

I noticed that there is no bend in the rear leaf springs. Are are flat so hat means that they are weak right? I would like to replace them. What leaf springs will fit. I don't want to lift it more than what it should be. Help.

From 84 to 01 they were all the same, front and rear. So there should be plenty available to choose from in the bone yard. But you will still have old springs that may not be any better than what you allready have.

Other options for you would be aftermarket which can be pricey, or if you can track down a spring company locally they may be able to set you up with a pair of main leafs brand new at a resonable cost. Or they may be able to re-arch used leafs for even cheaper money.

Check out this link at Quadretec. You can get brand new OEM replacements for $51.95 for complete leaf pack. So for $104+tax you can have brandy new springs under your ride.

Thanks for the link. I think I'll be better just to order new ones. The front coil springs are just fine. But eventually I will replace front and rear shocks.
