    Curious to learn what all you purchased for your new suspension system. I am currently kicking around the idea of doing my suspension as well. I currently have stock springs with a shackle lift. I would love to get rid of the shackle lift and try to get a smoother ride, Any advice would be great.

      The wider YJ springs up front on a CJ make a world of difference.

        Parts to be installed on the CJ are:

        OME YJ front and rear springs
        Full Traction SRS kit
        OME greasable bushings
        OME Steering Stabilizer
        Big Daddy steering box mount and tie rod/drag link kit
        4wd steering box brace
        Flaming river column and shaft
        Complete new brake system from the soft hoses down front and rear
        Warn Front hub conversion with complete new internals.

        So basically when it's done and said the only stock items I'll have underneath are going to be the axles, the hard brake lines, and the steering gear box....I can't wait to get it all done...should drive soooooo sweetly...Did this very thing on my 79 and it drove like it was new ...I'm so excited...I feel like I'm 5 again and waiting for Christmas morning.

          Congrats, looks like you have some spare time to loose. Gonna have fun puttin on all of the mods. Sometimes I think that is almost as much fun as driving it.
