Re: suspension springs

I would go 5 leaf rears and 4 upfront.
As far as YJ v CJ I know the YJ's have a better spring rate but the cj's flex just fine for me. A couple of differences would be CJ fronts are 2" wide vs. YJ 2.5
CJ fronts are 43" vs YJ 45". The main thing to remember when putting them on the front is axle placement you will still have to make some brackets for the spring hanger to move the mounting point packwards. The stock axle is limited to moving forward less then 2" without your stock steering binding,(x-over dont worry bout it) Also consider your drive shaft lengths and your tires size you will be wanting at least a 33 spoa with those springs, which leads to gearing which leads to stronger axles which leads to.....see where I'm going with this.......
