Re: whats wrong with 2in spring pads on 2.5in springs?
I don't see why you would have a problem. You are only talking a 1/4 of an inch overhang on each side. I ran wrangler springs on the front of my CJ for 2 years, and that was a 2 1/2" spring on a 2" pearch. No problems.
Strength wise, your u-bolt plates will be fine to reuse. You may want to check the width of the bolt holes. Of course now would be the time to upgrade to some high clearance JKS skid/u-bolt plates. Oh, look, I have a used set right here! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] If interested let me know.
