I think stock wagoneers are around 3" lift, but would depend on their condition.

Most people either add to them, or use the rancho 2.5" lift wagoneer springs..

Any pics of what you have? Or details? What size tires are you running?

Have you considered rear toyota springs?

Are you running Hi steer? How about the front spring hanger.. stock?

Default toy rear springs

i've been thinking about this. how long are they? is the center pin offset? how much lift does it give a stock toy? with waggy springs i could easly clear 35's. i really don't want to be any higher than that. that was stock waggy's soa. do you think toy rears would be better than yj springs. that is the other spring i was considering. thanks for the help.

There are a few different toy rear springs..

Most are 48" long, the 2nd gen (84+) are 20.5" to the pin from one side.

They'd probably clear your 35s just fine. Youd'want to get them, remove the two bottom overload leaves, and add in some of your wagoneer leaves until they are the right height.

I could get you a set, but I'm an hour+ away..

The IFS springs would be just fine. The pin is offset ~3.5" forward from center.

Here's my truck, its got a worn out 1983 rear springs for the front axle.

Originally they were here:




They've flattened a little with age, wear, and the weight of a winch + bumper..



I don't have any flex pictures, but they felx very well, lots of droop. I have bumpstops up front to prevent too much compression.
