Cj to Wrangler spring question, I am curious...

To start I have an 85 CJ7 with stock springs all around that sits very ass high. I have a rear set of Wrangler springs out of a 93 or 94YJ. Question is, if I were to stick these in the front of my CJ (and do the necessary wrangler spring swap mods) what kind of height difference can I expect? The front end of my cj is very stiff and I would like to soften it up and add some greasable shackles then eventually some 2.5" wrangler lift springs. I would be leaving the rear CJ springs in for now and just adding the greasble shackles all the way around but i don't want it any lower in the front than it is now...

I think the wrangler springs are considered to be softer (therefore the popularity in swapping for SOA), so I would be worried that it may make your problem worse, unless your stock springs are very worn out. If you think you are going to do a lift soon I would just wait myself.
