JKS Rear Spring Retainers

JKS Rear Spring Retainers

Part #: PN1600

I have seen enough springs come loose on trails to think about some added protection of keeping the springs in place. The JK's don't have much for a spring pad in the back on either the upper or lower position. I do have the proper length shocks that shouldn't really make the spring coming out an issue, but a little extra precaution is sometimes worth it.

Additional Parts:

Tools Needed:
1/4" Allen Wrench
5/8" Combo Wrench
Tape

 

They come neatly packaged, not much really there, a big aluminum washer (machined spring retainer), a allen head bolt, washer and nut make up each side.
Seperate out each side. You should have a bolt, washer, and nut along with the large spring retainer.
Slide the spring retainer into the spring and position it over the hole in the center of the spring pad. Insert the bolt through the center of the retainer and the spring pad
Tape the washer and nut to the 5/8 inch combo wrench and slide it up into bottom of the spring pad. This can be very frustrating to do. Patients is required in figureing out exactly what angle you need to get everything started.
Using a 1/4 inch allen wrench tighten down the allen head bolt.
Finished.

Common Sense and Safety should always be observed when working on your vehicle or doing modifications. Jackstands, wheel blocks, disconnecting the battery are a few of the basic safety precautions that should be used and may not be mentioned in the write ups on this site. You are responsible for your own installation, these write ups are a helpful guideline and should not be taken as an official installation instruction. My write up may be different from the kits currently out there, so alwasy double check the manufacturers installation instructions when installing anything. I try to keep the site up to date with changes that have occured as I discover them, but may not have the latest unless someone lets me know. If you feel that an install is above your capabilities after reading my write ups, I recommend getting together with a club and getting some help. Only a few times have I needed to employe some actual help from a shop to get something done. Usually welding or A/C work.
