Please Help !!!

Anyone have a Stock FRONT YJ spring handy? I need to know the thickness of the spring pack. Meaning what will the distance be from the top of the perch to the spring plates that hold the U-bolts. I made a VERY cheesy Diagram at:
Anyone have one handy to check? I am going to get custom u-bolts in a few hours and they said they need this measurement

Each leaf is 1/4". Stock front set-up is 4 leaves. Might I suggest getting them longer than necessary. I've been experimenting with different set-ups from 3-8 leaves until I get the spring rate I want. You can always cut them down after, but is sure is hard to add on.
