Cause they are going on my cj and I'd rather not pay new price for a set.

OME YJ springs are not "zero" lift. ARB doesn't market them as a "lift", rather as a replacement suspension, but they do actually provide a lift. They're rated at 2" of lift, sold as a 2.5" lift, but can actually provide up to ~3" or so of lift.

Alexx77cj7 - You are aware that any used YJ springs you come across are most likely going to be worn out factory original springs, and pretty much flat under load, right?

I thought that yj's had a lower stance than a cj from the factory

It blows my mind that the stock springs are more expensive than the OME springs.

Imagine what a dealer would charge you...
