rear leaf conversion

Ive decided to convert the rear suspension of my tj to leaf springs. Does anyone have any pics of this swap being done? Or no of any good write ups?

He does but is converting it to a 4-link like the front.

In all seriousness a leaf-spring stretch is the easy way out. Just be sure to do it right, and once.

Find any pics of Mr. Clifford's rig. He did that previously on his TJ and is now in the process of putting together a 4 link for it.
