I have a set of stock springs that aren't sagging too badly. I pulled 'em off when I did my lift. If you're interested, let me know and we can work something out. They are off my '94 - here are a couple pics of my YJ when it still had these springs on it (taken at Holcomb Valley up in Big Bear, CA, ~1 month before I did my spring lift):




Let me know if you're interested - my dad would LOVE for me to get rid of these old springs... I also have two track bars and the front sway bars if you want those, too.

CHECK THE LOCAL OFFROAD SHOP. ALOT OF THEM KEEP THE STOCK JEEP SPRINGS THEY TAKE OFF WHEN THEY INSTALL LIFTS. YOU COULD ALSO PUT IN ADD A LEAF FROM RANCHO OR BDS.

Allright, you wanna do it for next to nothing??? this is what I did on my YJ and it started out as 2 1/2" of vert, and settled to a even 1 1/2"....here's my secret.

I went to the scrap yard and bought some leafs out of a 1/2 ford, old, early 80's...and i seperated the pack, and selected some prime candidates <the approx right length> and just loosened my axles, removed the centering pin, and spread my leafs with a pry bar and hammered in the leaf from the ford....afterwards, I got it all lined up again, and re-assembled....i get a better ride in the front, but it feels stiffer in the rear, I ramped better than a stock YJ.....it's just time consuming, I suggest a couple friends to help.....discluding my time, I got a 1 1/2" left for 28 bucks......I'm happy with it....
