Leaf Sprung Jeep Yj Wheeling

We slam spring-over suspensions because of their many shortcomings. Axlewrap is a big one. But the fact of the matter is that the nice, flat YJ Wrangler springs lend themselves well to a spring-over setup. With a slip yoke eliminator, steering corrections, and longer driveshafts, shocks and brake lines, a sprung-over YJ can be a great off-road machine. It will fit 35s with no fender trimming or 37s with fender trimming and still ride like stock. Of course, if you wheel it you’ll be replacing those supple springs because you’ll bend and/or break them fairly often.
