    More than likely the 927 fronts, not the 790s

    They are the heavy duty option, I told them what bumper was going on it with a winch. I also told them I was planning on getting a roof top tent and they said go with the medium springs in the rear.

    They consider the 927s as heavy duty , 790s are for the CRDs and we have found for bumper / winch set ups
    For the rear you only have light and medium duty
    Where did you buy them from ?
    I personally have been installing them on KJs for almost 13 years now and I find that we ( on here ) know way more than most places that sell springs and shocks . Unless you are talking JBA or ALLJs . Any place else is laughable :happy175:

    If only going 33s why would you go SFA ? Steel front diff with 4.88s front and rear, 6 inch lift and done
    Actually could of done 33s with my 4.5 inch lift really if I had the steel front diff
    When I was going to go SFA on the 04 I was looking at 37s at least

    I mainly want the SFA so I can put a locker in the front end and not blow up cv's every time I use it. Not a fan of the rack and pinion ifs set up. Although I am considering putting the bumper and winch on and just using it as a cool looking daily and getting another TJ for a trail rig.

    I will admit, there's a ORV park called Evans Creek here in Western Washington and I would love to see the look on people's faces when I pop out at the top in a liberty, nobody gives them any credit.lol

    I've replaced 3 busted front diffs for other people
    all was caused by not paying attention and being stupid basically
    Install " good " lockers front and rear and have fun
