add a leafs

i have a 95 jeep yj with a 4 inch rough country lift. after putting big bumpers, spare tire, winch, and doing quite a bit of wheeling my suspension has sagged allot. i want to add another leaf to each spring pack. i was looking at rustys add a leafs. dont have a bunch of money. anyone have good idea's on what to do? im not interested in doing an soa. rather do a coil conversion in a couple years. just interested in perking up my jeep for the time being.

I had a leaf added to my 92 and it's been great. Raised it 2 1/2 inches. Cheap way to lift and still rides well enough. Hasn't sagged any in 3 years.

Just took it to an auto spring shop and they added the leaf. It's thicker than the stock leafs.

I've heard of using a spring from chevy S-10s as an add a leaf. This was done w/ the stock spring packs though, not sure if it would yield any results w/ the RC springs you have since it's already arched more than stock.
