Bastard Pack Question??

First of all I would like to say Hello, I am new to this forum and really appreciate all the info the site/members have to offer!

Iv been stalking CL for S10 springs to make a bastard pack for my yj for a while now with no luck... But I did come across a set of yj springs for a good price. I was wondering if I could combine them with my sad saggy springs to get some lift. Let me Know!-Chris

Are they stock YJ springs or lift springs? It's useless if they are stock. You won't gain much. If they are lift springs you might as well just install them instead.

You can buy individual springs for around $100 each. Give or take of course. From there you can get the hardware you need and shocks after therefore saving you a lot of money.

I paid $35 a pair for S10 rear springs at a junkyard - that even included them torching them off rather than me trying to break old spring bolts free. Worked great for two years of abuse until I broke a spring. I recently got new lift springs up front and the ride is so much better (and my Jeep is a trail only Jeep) in the front than the back that I am going to be buying the same springs for the rear now.

The springs are the 3.5" Fabtech springs from Amazon - only $65 each, but they do not come with bushings so about $100 a corner.
