4 inch standard lift spring for YJ Wranglers. Contains 5 leafs. You may run these leaf packs front or rear.
Had lifted my '00 XJ with bolcks on stock springs. Both springs broke so I replaced them with the Rubicon Express 3.5" springs and ditched the blocks. The ride is a little more firm then stock but not uncomfortable. The rear sits about and inch higher than it did with the 3.5" blocks.
If your bump stops are wrong or your shackles invert i.e. your shackle stops are off you will break these. I run these on all 4 corners of a v8 powered cj7 on 37's with some mild trimming at 100 WB they flex as well as my wife's TJ and are more stable over all. I cycle a 14" shock up front and 12" inboard shocks in the rear with these and have a limiting strap on my rear diff i have found an addaleaf sometimes becomes necessary as these springs age. overall i use these in MOAB utah on all trails including prichett canyon, rubicon trail in CA, Fordyce, Barrett lake. there isn't a place i haven't been where these springs haven't been tested, they have proved very versatile. set your shackle angle between 55-60 degrees. which may require moving of the hanger. this will aid the off road performance a lot. 5" shackles eye to eye. good luck make sure to check bumpstops or you will break a spring like any leaf spring rig
I installed these on my 87 YJ it has the 4.2 liter with an automatic, if I could do it over I would have got the 4 1/2 springs for the front and the 4 inch for the rear, do to the front sags alot more than the rear so now it looks like its leaning forward, the front is probably an inch lower than the rear now that there broke in. Other than that there great springs.
Overall good springs. No complaints. Definitely an improvement over the ones i had on there. Important! These are not the springs for the RE 5.5 lift kit. That comes with4.5" springs and the 5" straight shackle. For install on an xj the 6" boomerang shackle is required due to the longer spring length. Trust me, i foung out the hard way. None of the info here or on the RE website reflects that. My only big complaint.
I use this product for a daily driver and rock crawling. Would have rather done a coil suspension instead of waste my money.
I have a 1979 CJ7 with SOA, these should work along with RE1444 correct?
Asked by 1080 from on
1080, the Rubicon Express Leaf Spring Extreme-Duty Rear YJ 1.5" will work for you, but the RE1444 will require a YJ spring conversion if you haven't already. Hope this helps!
