Default ruf kit

is there any downfalls to the ruf kit? and could i instead of replacing the rears just go the the junkyard and get another set of stock sammie rears and leave the back and just have the front a little higher? after the spoa kit it seems lower in the front anyways? and the little extra lift would help for the 33s? anyways any advice would be much appriciated

When putting the rears up front (RUF), it is best if you remove the overload spring leafs and add the second leaf (touches the main leaf) from the front packs to the rears. This smoothes out the ride a bit without compromising the ability of the spring packs.

If you just bolt on a set of rears you will have a rough ride and the overoads will hang down and grab debris as you go through the trails.

Actually, you use any CJ front spring packs because the rear CJ spring packs are too wide. They won't fit the hardware.

Samurai front and rear - 2" wide
CJ fronts - 2" wide
CJ rears - 2.5" wide

Yes, but I would bet your front end would be taller than you want...

And yes, when you swap rears to the front you can use a RUF kit OR Missing links. I actually installed front CJ's in the front of my zook by using both methods at once...

Going Long - CJ Spring Packs Up Front

Then I went to wranglers within 6 months.
