Leaf springs to SOA?

is it possible to change the leaf spring suspension to a SOA suspension? They seem like a 10x better ride and have 10x more off road capabilites. Or am i mistaken.

If your gonna do SOA with 3.5 leafs.... you'll be sitting at a 8" lift, You'll need an SYE on top of that, more than likely steering upgrades....

Be prepared to dump some serious $$$$.

Anything is possible my friend. There are a few different places that have put kits together to do a Control Arm/Coil/Shock setup on YJ's and CJ's.

Check out http://www.rockkrawler.com, they do a link/coilover setup for YJ's.

Also companies like Gen Right (Among numerous others) have put together more simple link setups for buggies etc.....

Leafs are springs

But you want coil springs right? Like on a TJ?
