The new front pivot brackets are fully welded, painted, and ready to bolt into existing holes in your CJ frame. Spacers (plastic) are provided for the purpose of different winch mounting possibilities, and/or if you want to use our frame plates. The shackles provided in this system are 3/8 inch thick steel, zinc plated gold. The mounting method for the shackles is unique with this system. You must drill a hole in each frame rail, then weld in 2 inch wide steel tubes. Polyurethane bushings insert into the tubes which support the shackle plates. The shackles hang from each side of the frame rails. This method of attachment keeps the drive shaft and caster angles as close to stock as possible, and gives ample clearance for off road obstacles. This system will work with stock springs and after market 'lift' springs, however, it will not provide any lift in itself. It will work with springs under the axle (stock set-up) or if you have installed the springs over the axles (custom).

This system is upgraded with wider (2.5") tubes to insert in the frame so you can install the wider Jeep YJ Wrangler springs. Why you ask? The Wrangler springs typically have a softer spring rate then CJ's adding flexibility and ride quality. This system comes with the pivot brackets fully welded and painted, all hardware and instructions included.
