Ever looked underneath your Jeep CJ and wondered how your front leaf spring is still mounted to your frame with all the rot and rust in that area? Well, you're not alone. This is where the Rust Buster Spring Mount Section steps in to become your Jeep's new best friend.
Picture this: with the EZ Slip design, it's like sliding a new piece into a puzzle, perfectly fitting onto your frame. And yes, it has all the factory holes and mounting locations you'd expect, ensuring that tight, just-right fit.
But here's where things get a bit technical and truly impressive. Behind the scenes, modern CAD tools are hard at work, ensuring that each repair section is precisely modeled. The outcome? A piece that's laser-cut, molded, and welded to perfection. It’s all tailored to ensure your beloved Jeep CJ stays on the road, year after year.
Now, a heads up for the CJ7 owners: the front leaf spring mounting point might be looking a little worse for wear. It's a common issue, with that factory rubber body mount right above it. Moisture and debris, those pesky invaders, often wreak havoc, leading to rust and wear. But there's a silver lining: no need for an expensive full frame replacement. Just cut out that old mount, address the rust, and fit the Rust Buster Frame Section in its place. A simple weld, and voila, you're back on track. Oh, and for an optimal fit, consider getting new leaf spring mount bushings.
Lastly, for peace of mind, know that this product comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty. It's a nod to its quality and your Jeep's enduring spirit.
