Starting to get into doing some suspension maintenance/upgrades on my Jeep. I'm a novice, so bear with me...
93 YJ, 31x10.5 tires. There seems to be plenty of tire clearance so I would think there's some kind of lift going on here. It sags pretty badly in the rear drivers side due to a cracked leaf (see pic). Getting ready to replace all 4 leaves but not sure which way to go. Most replacements are 5 leaves, but the ones on here are 4. I'm thinking that maybe it's got one of those 1.5" or 2" leaf lifts going on? Also not sure if the shackles and u-bolts are factory or not (like I said, a novice).
Not sure if I need to install standard "replacement" springs (like these
)or some lift-type springs (such as these
). Not looking to lift it any more, just pick up the butt and stiffen up the ride a bit. I'd really appreciate any help you guys could offer.
