Reviews for Old Man Emu CS036R 2.5" Rear Medium Load Leaf Spring for 87-95 Jeep Wrangler YJ
I used these all the way around and they worked great! Just be sure if you use them on the front to flip around the wedge so it fixes your caster angle.
Really nice 5-leaf rear spring. I'd say about 1/2 the weight of some other sets I've wrestled with. Caveats: No included instruction sheet. There is a red rust inhibitor goo inside of the spring eyes. That should be removed and the bushings installed dry, then lubed at metal contact points. The eyes are different dimensions, main being 1 1/2 ID and shackle being 1 1/4 ID. Order bushings accordingly. ARB recommends Moly based lube for the contact points with EMU bushings. DO NOT use moly if you choose another brand of bushing. Use what the maker stipulates. Choosing the 'right' EMU parts would have been much simpler if I had found the Master Catalog first, so DO go there before you decide what to order!
I'll keep this review short. This is my first set of Old Man Emu springs and they are by far the best springs I have ever used. These are soft and flexible and give a great ride. They don't sag, warp, or move around. I have owned many other brands of leaf springs and also owned many jeeps. I wish I would have bought these long ago! I used 4 of these springs for all 4 corners. CJ7 with rag top, V8, and winch. I got about 2 inches of lift from these so plan accordingly. You will also need to change your brake hoses to longer ones since these will give you some incredible articulation movement. My jeeps rides so much better and does not kill my back anymore.
These are awesome, improved my ride a lot and provided about 2 1/2" of lift after break in.
