You are currently running 4" springs SOA plus a body lift and a shackle lift? Shocked



Anyway, I would guess that the lift will be about the same between the YJ springs and the XJ springs. You will have to move your shackle mount back to fit the XJ spring.

What I am saying is that a 4" YJ spring is gonig to give you about the same lift as a 4" XJ spring, whether it is SOA or SUA. Either way, if you are using a 4" lift spring in the stock type mounts, it is going to be very tall.

but, stock xj springs seem very weak. have a tendency to arc the wrong way after awhile, or just flatten out.

if your planning an aftermarket spring, then that would likely be fine.
