Re: SOA with rear XJ springs = how much lift?
I'm guessing the xj springs will be flat in the rear, they usually sit about flat on an xj. In the front of my buggy i have a set of 4 leaf yj front springs that had a short add a leaf in them when i got them. I took out the add a leaf and added the longest leaf besides the main leaf and 1 of the shorter leaf from a pair of early 80's 1/2 ton chevy rear springs. The springs sit perfectly flat, flex decent and ride good. I'm a big fan of "making" my own spring packs to get the rates right. My rear springs need just a little more work and i'll call them good. S10 rear leafs have probably 1-2" of arch spring over and work pretty decent, offset center pins, if you need some measurments i can grab some.
