If I remember correctly they can be swapped into a Wagon to give it a bit of a lift right? Or you can take a leaf or two or and and it to your stock Eagle pack.

Can they be a direct swap on an SX/4? If not can you still do the adding a leaf thing?

The main leaf on cherokee springs is too long for an SX/4. But if you take the top leaf from an sx4 pack, and use the rest of the cherokee pack, I think it will work.

That's what we did with SOTE.

SX4: 23" x 27"
Wagon: 23" x 29"
Cherokee: 23" x 28-5/8"

This means the XJ leaf spring has the right space in front of the axle, but it is 1-5/8" too long for an SX4 and 3/8" too short for a wagon.

3/8" isn't much to overcome though. I made the mistake of putting wagon springs in SOTE when I first put it together. :oops: I'm adding another leaf to my wagon tomorrow along with the 8.25 diff.
