Front end is almost done now.
Picked up some Skyjacker Softride 6" coils for a Jeep XJ.
I had to get new Jeep spring isolator pads since the XJ coils are not wound as tight on the bottom as a RBV coil.
Then I had to use some 1 1/2" plumbing fittings to make a new spring seat.
Here is how the new seat works without the pad installed yet.
And with the pads.
I also had to take the bottom plate that holds the bottom of the coil in place and build up its O.D. a bit with a few passes of my welder since it would pull right thru the bottom coil.Now the bottom is retained like the factory setup. For the top I took a 5/8 cable clamp and cut it into a J hook and then drilled a hole in the coil bucket for a solid way the make sure the top of the coil doesnt pop out at full droop.
Since these were 6" springs I had to cut 2 coils off to get the ride heigth where I wanted it.Nice thing is they sell different size isolator pads that I can use to fine tune the ride heigth in the future if I wish.
Going to get it aligned in a few and I will have them install my 4" drop pitman arm since my puller doesnt fit up into the frame for some reason.
I drove it around the block and holy **** does it ride soft now! Most people prlly wouldnt like it but I do. Its going flex alot better now. Next I will have to get longer shocks because the Duffs are about 1.5" to short to get full droop.
