Decided to take the links off of the rear and go with leafs. Had a set of 3/4 ton dodge rear springs that are 52" long. Used those because of the offset of the tie bolt. Added 4" of arch and an extra leaf. Have to move the rear hanger to the rear of the frame where the bumper bolts on because of the extra length.

Started fabbing the hangers today.

Well did away with the radius arms on the front. Copied a design that seemed to work great on another yj I looked at.

I know the links look small, but it is in the preliminary stages to make sure everything works. They are gonna be 1 3/4 tubing when I get it all figured out. I know that it is not your typical setup, but it worked extremely well on the other rig.

Haven't had much time to tinker with it lately, but I have the front spring situation under control now. These are 6" springs for a Ford.
