What’s been increasing in popularity for straight-axle/factory-leaf-spring vehicles, such as Jeeps and Land Cruisers, is a spring-over axle mod. Essentially, it requires moving the leaf springs from below the axles to above them. It’s not really expensive or tough, and typically the stock springs work fine. You’ll need to have tubing bent for the drag link. With this switch, you’ll gain more articulation and clearance simply by having the leaf springs up and out of the way.
