If you're running 33's you have a lift of some kind. I prefer Bilstein, they aren't cheap but I have always been happy with them.
Those tires look wider than 10.5, it's a small photo so I may be wrong, but they look more like 11.5 or 12.5

are there any markings on your springs? can you get better pics of them, shackles, and suspension?
or you can take out the shocks you have, and measure them. extended, and compressed.

Yes they are 12 1/2 sorry but here's wat I did I went on quadratic and put 2 1/2 inch lift and bought the sky jacket hydro shocks so I hope they will work I'm not sure if it is a 2 1/2 inch lift but I measured the shocks while they were on the jeep from eye to eye and measured 22 inches they measurement on my shocks were 22" so I figure these will fit because 22" is in the middle of the new shocks. New shocks
measurements were 16.56 to 28.75

Look around on www.Morris4x4.com
I love this website and buy everyting I want and need there. You said you're new to the YJ, you might already know but before you go dump a lot of money into the rig know that the rough ride is just part of it. Idk if there is a real sure way to get rid of it haha. Have a great time bother!

True. If you have a SOA itll ride smoother, but its just a fact that most YJs ride rough
