I have my engine in but I think I mounted it too high, was working on my radiator mounting last night. I'm using spring over front leafs on a shorted J-20 D44 ... I shortened it a while back to about 62" and did something that I now realize was stupid. I shortened it to 32.12" on the long side (waggy length) and didn't mess with the short side other than turning the knuckle. Now I have a short side that has to use a custom length axle since it's an odd application.

I'm about to pull the trigger on the ultimate redneck suspension ... the one link ...

I just got in some yukon 4340 axle stubs ($99 for the pair) and a yukon long side axle for about $89 ... surprisingly it turned out to be the made in the usa stuff not the India imports. I've got some longfield joints I'm gonna use if I can even get the whole rig together ...

what's the difference between the XJ and TJ coils ?

hey slag, if you're looking for a project I need plenty of help !

I don't have the specs handy, but I believe the only diffrence is the spring rate.

well, let's put it this way....
you've seen the sticker that says "It's a jeep thing, you wouldn't understand".

the way it should read is, "It was a Jeep thing, but all that $#!+ broke".

I kinda thought that back in the 60s, when I took one for a test drive and did the sh!t Jeep did in the TV commercial. Good thing was I had a buddy in the neighborhood who gave me a ride back to the dealership. That salesman had to walk back, after he came to from fainting.
I think they banned me from ever again test driving a Jeep, and put my picture in the dealerships. Hell, they shoulda known not to go on a test drive with somebody who brought a brainbucket along for himself.

The FC170 wasn't a bad thing though, with a 283 Chevy squoze in.
