    Default YJ SOA Flat Spring

    To more quickly get my new to me D44 under the YJ, I was thinking about just getting a new set of rear springs. Front has SUA RE 4, anY idea what SOA I could use in the rear to keep it even with the front? I need something nearly flat. A flexy, flat spring should give me about the same lift as the front, SUA vs SOA.

    If the front is a 4" lift spring under, stock springs should be dang close, maybe an inch higher.

    Just remember, spring over is going to give you some 'axle wrap' under torque.

    Did a spring over on my CJ, and hated it.

    Swapped it back to spring under, with 3" lift springs from Black Diamond, and much better.
