What I didn't do to my Jeep today:
Those Explorer springs won't work on the front. The center pin offset is around 25"/30" which the 25 is still too long for my frame. They would work in the rear though. I will look into Durango, S10 and Trooper springpacks at 22/32, 21/27 and 21/26. Not sure of the rate and lift on them. Kind of limited with my 81" WB.
I set my air-down gadgets down to 7psi - done. Go slow everywhere but anywhere.  :hahaha:

There's a link on Pirate with leaf spring lengths, widths, pin offsets etc.  I don't know that I have it saved anymore, maybe Sean has it.

I was at PnP today with my son and looked at Rodeo leaf springs (same as Honda Pilot) and the 21/26" are plentiful. Guessing I could remove the overload leaf as it would catch on everything. Only checked one Durango and it didn't have that fantastic 22/32" pin offset. I ordered 2.5" spring and shackle hangers plus spring pads from Barnes 4wd. I couldn't find the spring chart on Pirate for spring rates.

Here's a thread with a bunch of info on spring rates, I didn't actually read it though.....  https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/jeep-willys/2283090-leaf-spring-suspension-geometry.html

Here's a chart with lengths, offsets etc (it's not the one I was talking about but I can't find that one)....  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1In5Mz6hklQ89TcGDU2OTJkTK2w8DN_aPwV6qQf1-45U/edit#gid=0

Good thing is you can save that one somewhere.

Thanks Tim. The spreadsheet gave me more choices than I previously had. I'm going to start with the rear as 3/4" wider springs will just fit next to my offset pumpkin. The longer frame length in the rear gives me more choices as well.
