If you have a reverse shackle, a winch and winch bumper and overall the Scout is still fully dressed out(not stripped down for weight reduction) then the ride should be ok. We feel if you still have a shackle forward design and no massive bumper, etc then more than likely it will be a bit stiff. Of course if you have the time we can special order springs for you tailored to your exact needs.

After six months of testing we are satisfied with the end result. To start with we have ordered in three sets of springs. For those interested in one of these first few please contact our sales department.

Reading the thread, you mentioned custom ordering springs for a truck w/an lt-1. Would you custom order for a truck that will be a pavement pounder only for a super plush ride?
Was thinking about a SOA just to go back to stock springs for a nice on road ride.
Would a 2" or 4" be necessary for 33's on 15x10 wheels (not sure of the offset)?
How long of a wait?
Thanks,

We could have a custom set made that was of a slightly lower spring rate in the front if you wanted. Wait time would probably be around a month or so. Compared to most other 4" lift springs these are much "softer" in the ride quality department as they have so many tapered leaves (10 for the front). The current setup leaves a slight rake in the Scout if you were completely empty as we are anticipating that there will be spare tools/parts in the back. With the lighter engine you would probably sit more level empty. After riding in the Scout with these springs I would have to say that it rides better than stock. We only offer these in a 4" currently and that is definitely needed for 33's. Hope this helps and I can't guarantee that any of my speculation is 100% accurate as we have not tested the springs in this scenario.

Thanks michael,
my truck actually has an sv (304) but I am looking to drink super hot mcdonald's coffee w/out a lid plushness is my top priority. I know it's not a cadi but the softer the better in my book and 4-6 weeks wouldn't be a problem. What shocks and bushings (rubber or poly) would you recommend for an on road only truck?
This would be a lot less hassle than a SOA conversion, would you agree?

Hey fellas !
A little bit of a random question but how thick is the spring pack at the center pin ?

Sorry about the late reply. For the bushings I would go with the graphite impregnated poly like we sell as they tend to last longer than the low quality rubber we get now a days. I haven't really detected much of a difference ride quality wise between the two. This would be definitely easier than a SOA but we would recommend installing a reverse shackle kit if you haven't already. Bilstein's would be my choice for a high quality shock. These springs are about as soft as you can get for the front concerning the amount of weight that is hanging over the front axle. I'm only guessing, but to make them softer you would have to add more arch to the pack to compensate for the lower spring rate. I would be worried about sagging over time if we went to far with lowering the spring rate. The spring packs are 2 5/8"s thick for the front and 3 1/4"s for the rear.

Thank you for the reply michael !
Im looking to replace my old rancho lift

this kit is on my list probably this fall when summer is over.

I did get your poly bushing kit last winter and yes they are holding up good, I also got your CPT spring under high ground clearance u bolts and plates, those are great also.

Only roughly 3 inches of spring hanging down below the axel that is great.

Thank you again

Thanks michael,
so these leaf springs in a 4" lift w/a reverse shackle (which I have already) would produce a better ride than going SOA w/stock 35+ year old springs.

If the stock springs aren't all sagged out then yes I would say that these springs ride better. All the teflon pads between the leaves allow then to flex very well. Flat/wore out stock springs are very soft so that would be a tough one to say which rides better going straight down the highway with the same spring mounting setup.

Default Re: Coming Soon - CPT Scout II Leaf Springs

Jeff or michael - I want to replace all 4 leaf springs on my '77 Scout II 345/727 with original spec sets. Fronts are 433523c91 heavy duty w/axle 0465633c91; rears are hd progressives 391547c91 w/axle 0465639c94. Info I've found or been given seems to be all over the place, but I think I have the 1400# fronts and 1100# rears. I already have new bushings, u-bolts, etc, just need the 4 sets of assembled springs. Do you carry or can you get? Cost? Shipping to 92392? Thanks!

Sorry but we do not have new stock leafsprings. Although we can contact our leafspring manufacturer for pricing I have a suspicion that the cost will be quite high since we are only ordering one set. I suggest contacting a leafspring manufacturer in your area with those part numbers as they will be able to quote you out. Also you should double check your parts numbers as the front left is a different part number than the front right.
