Looking for recommendations on shocks? Also how do I judge leaf spring replacement? How do I figure out what leaf springs I have now, if they are lift springs etc? The more spring and shock threads I read the more confused I get. Drove my new to 57 CJ5 to the vin inspection station today for its first long test drive during which I determined even on paved roads it beat the daylights out of me. it will be a street Jeep with only very occasional farm road use. It does not have a lift. The current front springs are old 7 leaf and sit slightly arched, the rear are 9 leaf and sit flat with an empty Jeep, the front shocks are ancient, the rear look old they might be OMIX. it currently has 31x10.5 tires.
