if the stock rear sammy springs are 42" long would it be possible to swap in toy springs or 44044s?? cause if they can fit the yj springs with the extension on the front of the frame couldnt you fit toys too??

I will try and dig up a picture of my "original" rear leaf swap. It was booty fabbed, but it did the trick, I smacked it around quite a bit and they never broke. It basically had a 1/4" plate welded onto the frame as the 2" extension with the shackle mount welded to that. Pretty basic to do, and rear leafs all around flexes awesome.

Currently I am doing YJ's in the rear and staying with rear samis up front. Gonna twist up gooder. The YJ's extend the rear out a good 5".

yeah i got rears up front right now but they look like they fit in the stock location??? and i thought you had to do a longer shackle and whatnot. either way i think once i get some debts payed off im going to get some of the drop links from breeze
