chevy 52" leaf springs

I posted this under the cj section too but yjs are basically the same so Ill post here too. Is anyone running Chevy 52s in the back of their yj to stretch it? Pictures would be great but they seem if bastardized they could be good springs for soa stretch. I am really trying to find the best fit for my ride.

Where do you have the shackle mounts? Hows the flex and the ride quality. Could bother you for some pictures of the setup. Are you soa or sua?

ride is way better. I think the rancho 44044 in front might be too stiff still. I got those new. The rear springs are very worn in. Haven't had a chance to flex it yet. I need to redo my brake lines and weld the bolted on CJ7 rear spring hangers to the frame. I used one of the tapped holes in the frame and I drilled a second hole if I remember. I'm SUA front and back. I want to get the rear springs closer to the frame and redo the rear shackle mounts. If it gets the rear too low I might go SOA but I'm not sure yet. I'm at work right now. I'll try to get some pics later.
