    Default CJ5/CJ7 leaf spring configuration

    Hi All,

    I have the original late CJ5/CJ7 7 pack leaf springs (7 pattay) on my CJ5... the ride height is ideal.. but its a bit stiff on road... a little too bumpy.

    i want to make the ride a bit smooth but not compromising the ride height.

    i think placing 5 pattay in front and 6 in rear will make it better... what do u guys say?

    any experience?? i dont want to disturb the ride height

    akif,
    Reducing leaf spring will be a temporary solutiion.Two suggestions from my side.Either use Dihutsu Rocky Leaf spring (front & rear) it will improve the bump on the ride & it will cost u abt Rs:14000/- (front & rear both).
    1st try to rduce the cj5 original leaf spring & check the result.If it wont work than go for Rocky or like Hamza Jeep...It was very smooth & comfertable isnt it?

    @shani

    thanx bhai jaan... the suspension looks awesome... but with a lot of $$$$

    @offroad

    fahd bhai i hav researched a bit... CJ7 springs came in 5 front and 6 rear configuration... and then there is a heavy duty version with 6 front and 7 rear.

    Got similar comments on offroadpakistan.

    i am thinking abt removing the lowest of the spring.. it will decrease the height a bit.. so im still thinking

    how much would it cost to remove the lowest springs? can do an experiment if its not that costly labor wise.

    @ akifjanjua

    bhai yeh 500 wala sasta lag raha hai to aap aesa karo 1000 tip day dena

    akif bhai for more precise handling and firmer control on ur jeep, installing polyurethane bushings can make an enormous difference because they help to maintain the right alignment of caster, camber and toe, even on rough or uneven pavement. another advantage of polyurethane bushings is that they r virtually impervious to oil and other road contaminants . i think u can get these from ur Diahatsu dealer

    Greasable shackles are basically shackle bolts with a hole drill down the center and a grease fitting on the bolt head. half way down the shaft of the bolt, a small hole comes out the side, allowing pressed in grease to come out of the bolt into the tube. the tube should have a small hole in it allowing grease to come out of the tube, and behind the polyurethane bushings. the grease will improve ride on and off road .

    Update...

    not satisfied with the 7 spring configuration... i took out the 2nd spring from the pack this weekend

    and the ride is much comfortable.. less bumpy and there was no noticeable change in ride height.
