    Here is what you need to do.

    Take a bunch of pictures of your jeep.

    Go to craigslist.

    Write a really nice post about it and tell them everything you know about (even link in this thread).

    Set your price around $3k.

    Add in your photos.

    Publish that ad. You need to get away from this jeep, what you are about to do is goign to get you or someone else hurt.


    Sorry bud but you are barking up all the wrong trees and it is going to get MORE painful before it gets better simply because you wont listen to advice.

    Unless you have OME HD springs in the rear, they are probably just newer stock springs.

    Go get new stock springs and shocks for the front and quit F'N around with "the cheapest parts we can throw at it that maybe might not fix it because we can return them".

    YOU DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT NEED NEW OR USED OR ANY SPRINGS FOR THE REAR
    IT IS SITTING WHERE IT SHOULD BE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    GET AWAY FROM THE REAR OF THE JEEP, THERE IS NO ISSUE THERE, THERE IS NOT ANY OTHER KIND OF SPRING IN THE REAR
    IT IS SITTING RIGHT WHERE IT SHOULD BE LEAVE IT THE "H" ALONE
    THERE IS NOTHING AT ALL WRONG WITH THE REAR HOW MANY TIMES CAN I SAY THAT
    I HAVE PERSONALLY WORKED ON WELL OVER 100 KJS, LIFTED OVER 60 AND MEASURED BEFORE AND AFTER
    DANG WHY ARE YOU SO DETERMINED TO SCREW UP THE REAR WHEN THE FRONT IS THE REAL PROBLEM

    I was thinking his rear springs were something taller than stock, if that's not the case you're absolutely right. I know better than to argue suspension on these Jeeps with you, Tom. I doubt there is a soul alive that knows these Jeeps better than you on the subject of suspension.

    But lots of people who hate hearing what Tom has to say, sadly. I’d rather listen to Tom and have my Jeep riding properly than throw money at a problem with no clear direction.

    He seems to think they are too tall, some special springs for towing which is wrong as well
    Not sure how to get through to some LOL
