Leaf Spring Question

Hi everyone,

How concerned should I be about the broken leaf spring shown in the picture?

Getting around to some maintenance on the Jeep, so any opinions are very much appreciated.

The jeep runs and drives perfectly, it is a 94 YJ 4.0 Sahara.

In another thread, I just completed a clutch master and slave cylinder replacement, and as far as I can tell, except for a few spots of rust, the leaf spring is the only other thing "wrong" with the vehicle.

Thanks!

Tim

Looks like your due for some new springs.. Good news is leaf springs don't cost that much.

For sure, you need new packs man. A bastard pack is a waste of money IMO

Who is the OEM for leaf springs?

I like to keep everything stock.

Also, I'm pretty sure this can be done as a DIY, which I will research, but does anybody have any input on that?

Of course I'll have to replace them all!

It's just confusing finding the stock parts; there are so many lift options and everything.

I'll do my research. Thanks guys for pointing me in a good direction.

It's one leaf. It's called an Add A Leaf (AAL) it's a single leaf, you take the spring pack apart, add the leaf, then put the pack together

I have shocks that are longer. I'm fairly new to the jeep world but from all I've read normally with a 2-2.5" lift you just need shocks an maybe shims for the rear to set pinion angle. 4" you get into dropping transfer case an a drop pitman arm.
