I'm looking for Springs for my Samurai. Mine are pretty much sagged out and just about toast. Looking for at least 2 rears, possibly 4 if I could find some. Also if anyone know of another spring that works good, or if someone has some decent used spring with some lift that they wanna sell I'd be interested also.

More flex, but extending the frame = YJ springs...:) Very good...
But the rears are flexy themselves:)

No frame extension Russ. Your truck works just perfect the way it is. Get the ranch rears add one leaf out of your factory pack to the front's ( for winch added wheight. n Get Dave to arch mach them. You will never need on other set of springs.

Who's Dave??? I need my springs done in the front...they are bagged..
Are you talking about T&S suspension dave?;)
I have talked to him about the springs as well, found him alot more expensive than the local coast spring shop...but then again, he's a specialty 4x4 shop:D

Yes Dave a T&S. He is 65 $ per hr so his prices are comparable to other's. NOW IF YOU WANT THE JOB DONE RIGHT BY A PERSON THAN KNOW AND UNDERSTANDS WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO DO TO THE SPRINGS THEN YOU MAY PAY A LITTLE MORE IN THE LONG RUN. ( sorryjust looked up,hit cap's lock and am not typing over :) Not saying someone else cannot do the same work, just i have delt with many of them and had my best results with his product. 2 years ago i spent 1200$ on a set of 4 springs 7 leafs in each pack. Flex just fine, cary a load? How about 2 boats 5 coolers to motors gas and all the other stuff for a good weekend out without bending over backwords. All i am saying is you get what you pay for. Do your research, know what you are going to use your truck for. now and in the future. I do not plan on having to get another set of springs as long as i own the truck, but yes they did cost alot. I will be a stave on sun for some piggy if you would like to take a look.

You might be able to get a good price over the border if ya know what i mean. If all else fails i can get a good cut out of north shore or lordco.

Yeah, The spring shop in Langley is called Coast spring and Axle.
Behind Gemini, off the Bypass....Alot cheaper than most places I found..
They charge $65 per leaf spring (pack)to re-arc and add a leaf. I am bringing mine there within a few days....these rear Sammy leafs are very bagged and worn out, I'm afraid they will snap[aahh]....
