What\'s the ultimate spring combo?

I want to hear from those of you who love their leaf spring setup they're running - wouldn't change it unless it broke. I'm looking for springs to extend the wheelbase yet will hold up to a SOA and be road worthy, trying to stay away from aftermarket lift springs. I've got some springs I've cut to make a 1/4 elliptical but I really don't want to go to all that work of figureing out the linkage. I've read posts that have mentioned S10 and Cherokee springs but nothing with exact details. Any one?


(Winter's getting closer, I'd rather gather up my junkyard parts now instead of in snow in a couple months)

Save the time and agravation and go with something like the BDS setup. You won't regret the move. Time/research/headache vs. $$$$

Time/research/headache - it comes with the Jeep.

I'd actually like the 1/4 setup but I'm not sure how I'd like it on the highway. Plus with the springs I already have cut I can move the rear axle back up to 8". Just a lot of linkage design.
