I came in here to say "I swear to god, if you go with a Rough Country lift...". But since that's already taken care of, what he said above. Alcan Springs also makes custom leafs for you, I've been reading a lot of reviews on here and other sites about their springs. Haven't seen a bad one yet.
1992 YJ - 5.2L V8
2003 WJ Limited - 4.7L H.O. V8

Still not enough power.

I run the 1454 extreme duty springs up frot and the combination of spring, shock and proper bushing alignment/shackle torque make them good riding springs. There's always an easy way to screw up a spring install.

Why not just open up the spring bands. They are WAY tight when the lift is new. They do wear in over time, but but can remedy it by opening the bands, drilling holes in them and then putting a bolt with sleeve. Then this gives the springs more room to move.

Don't forget to properly torque the spring eye and shackle bolts.

Don't soft springs usually end up sagging? From what I've been reading and hearing, OME springs ride soft.

I also just had to replace my 4" leaf springs on my 94 YJ when one broke (they've been on there since I bought it). I went with the Rubicon Express. However at the time I didn't have all the cash to plunk down for the shocks too, but I'm ready to buy some now. I don't have experience shopping for shocks for this jeep. The quick response seems to always be Bilsteins on here but I'm trying not to break the bank(just had to buy a new engine for my bike) and maintaining decent street performance is a priority (as much as would be possible with a 4" lift anyway).

Any suggestion (for 4" lifted YJ other than Bilstein), or advice on the max optimal uncompressed/compressed specs I should be looking for?
