    I wish I had more news on it. The frame is getting the new spring hangers installed tomorrow! Some progress but a ways off of driving it.

    They are the same width as a Samurai spring, that is what I used for mounts.

    There is a guy on teamroxor that makes bolt on brackets to use YJ springs. I know none of them are exactly the right length but arent too too far off.

    A offset flanged 44 that is converted to true 30 spline full floater on yj springs. It is mocked up with Re 1.5" but I think it will go to stock yj.

    The spindle has to be drilled a little different to match the flange on end of tubing.
