Looking for a longer rear spring in the YJ

Well im looking for a longer rear spring for the back of the YJ to get some more flex out of her. I have done everything i can do to my setup that adds flex and keeps control. the lift YJ springs are just to short. I dont like coils so im not going there. I was thinking about maybe a MJ rear spring. Bt that may be to long. The thing is the axle can not move back anymore then it is now. so it would need to be something with a good offset like the MJ springs. Pics info of anytype would be nice. Thanks.


Note: I know flex is not everything... before someone tells me that.

Won't XJ leafs (run in stock XJ orientation) locate the axle in the same position as YJ leafs? And give you a longer spring? A plus is they DO flex...

I think the XJ springs are offset like 3 or 4" I know there very long. I want to keep my rear mount and just move my inside mounts. Hmm alot to think about at 12:30am After i get some sleep i will get back to it. thanks.
