Default Waggy springs( DONT NEED ANYMORE)

Looking for a set of waggy spring to strech my wheel base on the jeep. Havent had any luck finding someone that sells, or even makes for that matter a new set, so if I can find some good used ones, I guess thats gonna have to work. Let me know what you have. Not really sure what year, but I think mid to late 70's if it helps.

That board is pretty much the world-wide authority on FSJ's. They'll tell you exactly where to buy new or new lifted springs if that's what you decide on.

Default springs

I've got a 75 waggy that is going to be parted out / taken in for scrap. Make an offer if interested. It has a strong running 360 that you can hear run as well.

$50 for a set of fronts if they're in decent condition. JC Whitney carries good aftermarket replacement ones for around $125 each, IIRC.

Alright I've been everywhere, (just like Johnny frickin Cash). JC Whitney seems to have had a giant increase in there parts inventory, cause they now want $195.00, Yea thats right $195.00 for one springs plus $18.00 to ship one spring. Local spring shop wants $189.00, but cant get them for 6 weeks. Somebody has to have something out there!

Already told you where to go. If you don't take advantage of the lead and the IFSJA vendors, it'll be your own fault and we'll just laugh when you get raped on them

Well at least your 700 richer now to buy some new ones

Didnt think about when you were over ( to busy blowing up tires )but i have some stock toyota rear springs wich move the axle bout 1.5in forward maybe more, dont remember well at least on a toyota. Think it would do the same for you. Measure yours from the eye to the center pin, from both ends. Ill measure the ones i have. Could make a custom spring pack with whats left from your fronts. Thats what i did on my truck with a stock set of rear toyota springs and my 7in skyjacker springs. Moved forward alot and tons of travel.

If you want to try that one weekend let me know

Sound good. The stock springs are 44" long, w/ the center pin in the middle. The waggy spring is 47" overall, w/ the center pin at 24.5" from one end. I'll take a look at yours if you dont mind and see if I can make something work.

OH and I know, I'm a forgetful idot Pavement Pounder, I'm checking right now! Thanks.

Yea the toyota ones are either 47 or 48 long, with a offset pin. Could just use the main toyota leaf then your old ones that arent bent and see were it sits. Not hard at all to do with the springs out.

Heres what i did

I dont know your work schedule, so give me a call tommorow, let me know what you want for the springs. I think those might work, I'm not scared too make a spring pack, just gonna bust em any how.
