width axle assemblies underneath '76 to '86 Jeep CJ's (CJ-5, CJ-7 & CJ-8). The kit is designed to fit axles with leaf spring perches that measure 31-1/4" center-to-center. This includes most Chevy, Ford, full-size Jeep and Scout front axles.
The bolt-on front outboard bracket locates the front spring perches outboard by the correct amount, while also providing for the shackle reversal. The kit is designed to be used with 2-1/2" wide leaf springs, but narrower springs can be used with spacers (not provided). The front bracket also moves the front axle 1" forward of the stock position to assist in tire clearance as the axle rotates rearward under compression.
The rear weld-on bracket locates the rear shackle hangers outboard and allows for 10 different shackle hanger mounting positions. This flexibility allows for a the use of a variety of spring lengths, from stock up to 5" longer than stock. The kit incorporates a shackle reversal (shackles not included) for extra lift, and the multiple mounting points allow adjustment for longer shackles.
