Default Wanted Leaf Springs for CJ

Looking for a set of leaf springs to go on my 81 CJ. I am doing a spring over conversion so hoping to find a set with not much arch, lots of full leafs and hope to have military wrap on ends.

Please PM or Email if you have some. Or where can a guy buy new????

i have a set that looked to be about 2in lift,

cant remember condition, but will try to dig-em out and get pics if your interested, (they might need new bushings)

depending on condition... 50$

... if your going spring over why not shackle reversal in the front, and switch to stock yj springs, there wider but your already welding new mounts on the axle.... and those are plentiful, flat and flex great.

I have three different sets. I think there is a 4, 5, and 6 leaf front. Also I think there was two six leaf rear and a five leaf rear. I'll double check for sure if you are interested. $50 for a set you can choose what you want.

Also I checked on the windshields and frames that I have. If you don't mind a decent one they would both work. One is starting to rust in the front and around the windshield, and the other has a dent on the passenger side. Both have good glass in them.

More interested in tires and rims. Just been too busy to get over to call. I will try to bring most of them into town on Sunday if you will be around. I still have your number, I'll call you.
