Calling McDonald & McDonald in Newburgh tomorrow. They are a spring specialist.I bought the U bolts for the Jeep from them and they make them while you wait. For less then half the price of mail order, Four wheel drive hardware wants 90 per spring. Im sure M & M can beat that!
I have seen on rockkrawler.com, they sell the mounting pad kits that have some of the longest spring mounts in the industry to help minimize spring wrap. They look like they are almost twice as long as the ones I usually see, and have adjustable cross pins on each end of the mounts as well. Wondering if anyone has tried these, and how they work. From looking at them, they look like they might work well. But of course I have not tried them.
so why why why, i must ask why you titled this "axle wrap, something I thought the 2.5 couldnt do" since it dont have much to do with the engine? Running SOA with no track, anti-wrap bar this will happen on any type suspension!

not really. this is internet paranoia. without an anti-wrap i have bent spring packs but never broke any. the ones i have now (pre anti-wrap) are bent as well but still function fine. and as we all know the track bars have nothing to do with wrap.
Agreed a bunch. It's all in the springs chosen. Stock YJ 2.5L springs, like those in the OPs photo appear to be, have near zero ability to deal with wrap. Other springs, like my 1.5" RubiExp SOA design springs have shown no bends at all after a few years of V6 power, 35's, and no AW-bar.
