Who Makes the Best Lift Springs?

I want to give my 87 GW a small (2") lift. I'm looking for the best (and softest) set of springs available and don't want to sacrifice ride quality. I understand that Rusty, Superlift and Rough Country all make lift kits for GWs but I am looking for advice other than the store or the manufacturer. Do any of the aftermarket companies put anti-friction pads between the leaves like the stock springs? Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

You might want to try Old Man Emu, everything I've read says they are soft and a quality unit. I just am not sure if they make Waggy springs, but it's a place to try for a nice ride.

Re: Who Makes the Best Lift Springs?

Thanks for the suggestions. I checked OME. Unfortunately, they don't make springs for GWs. BJs doesn't have 2" lift springs other than add-a-leafs. I've also talked to National Spring in San Diego and will probably end up going that way. They quoted me $650/pair including bushings and U bolts for 12 leaf custom springs. It's not cheap but they can make a really soft spring rate which should work out equal to or better than the original springs.
