The leaf springs on our restomod ’56 CJ-5, Project Ground-Up, were originally designed as a front replacement for spring-over suspensions on YJs or Jeeps with YJ leaf springs.

These springs have performed pretty well over the past year or so both on- and off-road, but after we bent one in Moab last year, we started to wonder if we could hone our CJ-5’s somewhat dull suspension into a razor-sharp knife.
