Thank you! I wasn't sure what stock springs looked like on a YJ since these springs were already on when I bought this one. My previous jeep was a tj so I had no prior knowledge about the mechanics of leaf springs. And didn't get much info from my mechanic since he was thinking about a body lift i guess when he told me it wasnt lifted.

It looked lifted to me though in comparison to other yjs on the road, but wasn't sure if it was taller due to the rims and tires.

With 2" lift as it is obvious to most YJ owners, I would say go with Boomerang shackles for a bit more lift and then at most a 1" body lift (is my preference)
that should fit 33's just fine. With mine I had Inverted springs and wayyy too long shackles to get the 33's to fit.
Body lift or suspension lift are to clear tires to get ground clearance. If you are not afraid I ran into a guy that was running 35" tires on a stock TJ with only body mods like
high line fenders and completely stock suspension.
Center of gravity is always on my mind when lifting due to the different natures of the Ohio Terrain.

Measure to the bottom of the rocker panels to estimate the actual lift height. I will help with the tire math.
