Where did you get the springs?? I'd assume somewhere local? Also are the dual shocks up front stock or something you added? Mine has a single shock up front. I'd prefer to replace the springs as well and won't be doing any lift kit either... I don't think it needs it really. Only have 48k on it but they are old springs.I have heat in the barn. View attachment 821551 Today was my goal to go get the 4 new leaf springs. Goal met. I was able to work a full day and get to the spring shop before 4PM.

View attachment 821554 The front actually have an arch verses the reversed arch of the old ones. View attachment 821555I know as a proven fact that replacing the OEM springs with new stock springs makes a huge difference in any vehicle. The CUCV sits higher and looks better with new springs at all 4 corners. No more sagging to the side or to the rear like most I see are doing. And no lift kit springs needed. I will be getting these springs installed over the next few days as time allows. Having some heat will make a huge difference after 30 years of no heat. WOW I even have a dusk to dawn light outside. I hired an electrician to do some upgrades to my barn electric. So much nicer than an electrical cord. Happy Holidays to all.
