    We are getting started on the 72 Commando. Other than Alcan, is there any other sources for other springs for these? Pros and Cons vs the Alcans? We are looking at a 3" lift spring.

    Thanks

    Check Espo spring. I am not sure if they have any lift springs. The only downside I have heard of Alcan is price. All the people that I have seen with them have been very happy with them.

    I've heard here on the board that Bob Supplee in OKC is a good source for springs. I called him once, and he told me he could provide me with springs that I could buy from him and pick up locally here in Denver, that would save a bundle on shipping. Don't know about Jeepster springs though.

    I bought some brake parts from a guy here that had some used Jeepster springs, I believe. Don't remember what they were though, might not have been stockers. Want me to check?

    Na - thanks though - he wants to put new ones on (I tend to agree with new on suspension parts). We want to get enough lift so he can run 33's eventually with it.

    Bob only had cj5 springs last I checked with him, I'll give him a call though. The local guy who custom make springs doesn't have enough of a call to fire the forge up right now. Costs a fortune in fuel to run that thing so will probably end up with the Alcan's as they are the closest to Holbrooks (and I love them Holbrooks).

    From what I have heard you will not be disappointed with the Alcan's. They last a long time and perform very well.

    I didn't go with a radical lift on my Jeepster, just 1 1/2" to take the sag out of the rear end, but I had mine made at a heavy truck repair shop. They had spring material that matched the width and thickness of the orginals. They used the old ones as patterns and kept the eye let centelines the same with the different arch. The new rear springs cost me $150 for the pair. It's just a thought but you might want to check in to this avenue.
