When do I need to replace my stock leaf springs? They are certainly level, but dont appear to be bowed down. Its about time for new parts all over, almost to the big 250k. Trying to determine how intensive of suspension replacement I need.

Where is the best place to get some?

Hell it's always time to replace for beefyer stuff lok. Go with a 2.5 inch lift from rough country. Or if you wanna spend some more money go with the 4 inch. Or do you wanna keep it stock???

I like it stock height. I know, I know its a Jeep. Just the way I like it. I dont need the clearance, and dont want the cost or drivetrain issues that come with lifts and big tires. That said, I wouldnt mind it being a little higher, but I think it should be higher with good springs.

I do have to get to work on top of a mountain rain or shine, snow or sleet. I like to camp and ride out old fire roads, and drive a bit on gravel/dirt/no road, so I gotta have a Jeep, RIGHT!

And I just bought new tires. I beleive yall would call em 29s.

Thanks.

Im thinking new springs and struts, new bushings everywhere, quick discos on the sway bar, new ball joints. I guess I want to maximize capability while maintaining stock appearance. Its a 94 4.0 5spd that never got lifted or used, it just drove around. Now it needs a good bit of love, but is a champ. So here I go.

Quadratec has everything you need basically. Not really sure about stock springs though. I would call them though. They may have them
