To spring over, Or to not?On YJ

I'm in the process of building a shackle reverse kit for my '88 YJ and was thinkin I should do a spring over at the same time.Any input on the pros and cons would be appreciated.Thanks-Tom. P.S. I'm mainly concerned about serious bump steer and how to avoid it.And if you have a spring over how well do you like it.Does it flex well?How about the ride quality?Street manners?

You shouldn't need the shackle reversal if you do the spring over with flat springs. There was a link posted here a year or so ago that showed the suspension geometry differences between stock, stock with shackle reversal, spring under lifted without shackle reversal and spring under lifted with shackle reversal.
