Does anyone sell stock height SOA springs...

I want stock height springs but something of a little better quality I don't want to have to replace springs once a year. I searched last night and couldn't find any...I want stock height I already don't like the idea of being at 5.5 inches of lift with the 1" body lift and tube fenders I already think its going to look to tall but function wise this seems the better way to go....So does anyone sell stock height springs and is it possible to get them with the military wrap spring?

Full Traction sells zero lift leafs (they are not milwrap).

You can also have a leaf spring builder (Alcan, Deaver, National etc etc etc) make you some however you wish.

I use to make leaf springs in our shop for customers however they wished.

5.5 plus 1" BL sounds huge but it all relates to your tire size, honestly. I am SOA on stock XJ springs on all corners with a main leaf added to each pack. I think from STOCK I am a little over 5" of lift. But thats from STOCK height with STOCK wheels. Im running 37s and consider myself somewhat of a LCOG, considering the lift and tires.

Stock Height springs....all of the above Joe listed.

My next major major mod is purchasing new springs from Alcan, but at $220 each I have to wait a bit.

okay well I can get stock height springs for free but they are used....And I have heard if you use stock height springs SOA you have to replace them like every year or so and I will be doing a lot of wheeling so I'm guessing every year...which sounds like a drag...In your guys opinion would it be worth it just to buy some Rubicon express 1.5" springs? and then instead of a body lift just go stock height? that just seems super high that would put me at 7.5 inches and I have tube fenders so it just seems like there will be huge gaps in the fenderwells

Mine are wrapped. Unless they changed that in the last couple years.

I rarely drive my Jeep on the road but they do OK I guess. It's still a jeep after all. Offroad they have been great. No breaks so far (about 3-4 years now) and they flex very well. FYI, they might actually be a little lower than a stock YJ pack. Mine have been sitting with just the slightest negative arch pretty much since new. I've also heard the same from z-man about his FT springs back in the day IIRC.
