Leaf springs for my 71

Leaf springs for my 71 I have a lean to driver side :mshmmm:, What’s a better option reset old leaf springs or buy new ones, and if to buy new which ones, looking at CJ website there are that many, so many options.

Hak i'd pull yours out and get them re-set by Carrolls Springs  41/43 Sturt St, Smithfield NSW 2164 02) 9681 1355
I've used them before and i'll be using again in the new year

Yeah good idea birdman as the cars right side sits at the perfect height and i don't want that to change so perhaps they can match the sagged side to the good side  :thumb:

Or you could just swap them over L to R and R to L. Lol and wait another 20 odd years for the left to sag again lol

Not as silly as it sounds.  Unfortunately most places charge as much as a new set of springs to reset your old ones.
Cheers,
