Add a Leaf

Okay, I'm about to pull a trigger on fix my hot rod stance on my YJ. I have what I think is a 4" RC spring lift. I run stock shackles. I was wondering if I can run an add a leaf to boost me back up? I'm sagging close to two inches up front with no noticeable sag in the rear. I mean none. I'm not sure if a 2" add a leaf would level me out, or if it is doable. I searched for a very long time and I haven't seen any thread on using an aal on an already lifted vehicle except for SOA. I want to get new springs, but they are pricey and I won't have the money to get new springs for a while. But the add a leaf seems more realistic if it is doable. I'm trying to stay away from lift shackles. I hear that longer shackles will flatten my springs out prematurely and really mess with steering. Well, thanks for the read, maybe one of the gurus here can point me in the right direction.

Not much motion in the ocean, but I'm the captain.

Im not a fan of the add a leaf technique. Not many around here do them...

Superlift 3.5" springs run $60 each. And if those don't get you back up to level, a pair of 1/2" lift shackles will finish it off.

I run Superlift springs all around and I'm happy with the ride and flex.

Best option is to replace the problem, not patch it. Most lift estimates tend to be higher than reported, thus you might end up nose high. I would keep away from anything stamped rough country. Also not fond of 4+ lift kits.
