Re: YJ Springs
To answer your questions (I think) requires a little more info.
How much lift are you trying to get ?
How much weight will you be hauling ?
How much flex are you after ?
If you don't want much more than a 2" (like OME 2" Samurai spring would give) then you are looking at stock YJ's (or close to it).
The weight you hual will make a differance on weather you want 4,5,or 6 leaf's. I have fours, and think five's are the way to go. If you haul alot of extra weight you may want the 6 ers.
As far as flex goes, if you go with a lifted YJ you will reduce the stuff you will get. One of the nice thing's about the YJ is that it is a almost flat spring, great for stuff and drop. As far as springs go, I picked up a set of used ones from my local 4X4 shop (low miles, & good shape) for $25 (rears). They work great except they are only 4 leaf pack and can't handle a bunch of weight. But boy they stuff nice. I keep checking for a set of five's and I will probobly pay close to the same price. If I was going to by new springs (wich I don't plan on) I would by stock replacements, no lift.
