Thanks for the reply Jim. I just took a look everything that you mentioned and did not find any problems. The springs look ok, but there is no arc to them at all, they just lay flat. I don't know if that is the way that they are supposed to look. The oned on th back of my old TJ had some arc to them. Anyway, I looked at the bump stops and there is plenty of room between them and the springs. I even got on the bumper and jumped up and down to see if I could get them to touch. I could not get them to come even close, the springs are way too stiff and while I am not a really heavy guy, I do weigh about 175 lbs and should be able to bounce that thing up and down pretty easy.
At this point, I have to think that it is the springs that are causing the rough ride and I will replace them soon. The reason I wanted to get a small lift for it is just to make it look better. Even though she does not take it offroad, it will look a lot better. And who knows, maybe someday when she is not looking, I will take it out in the mountains LOL.
