Length of Stock YJ Springs

Does anyone know off the top of their head what the length of stock YJ springs are uncompressed and out of a Jeep? I'm looking for new springs and with an SOA I'd like a little stiffer spring to fight axle wrap some.


My Build Up

95 YJ, D30/8.8 w/ 4.88s, SOA, 35x14.50x16.5 Pit Bull Mud Dawgs, 101" Wheelbase, Custom Front Bumper, Winch, Custom Rear Tow Points, Traction Bar, Aussie Locker in front, 20 Gal. Gas Tank modification, Hurculiner Tub, Custom Rear Bumper, SYE and CV shaft, BTF Cross-over Steering, RCI 2191 fuel cell, BTF Rockers, RE 1.5" SOA springs up front and XJ springs in the rear

Down the line a bit...engine swap, the list goes on.

I think I saw a thread on here yesterday that stated that stock springs on a YJ are 45".

Thats what I thought, but I was wanting to double check. Anyone used springs other than the 45" without heavy modification?

Lots of guys in our club have different springs. Some have F-150's, some have XJ, but all required relocating spring hangers. All that I know of that have changed springs, do a shackle reversal. Mine is coming soon hopefully.

For my old 95 YJ I did a SOA lift and added a couple ply's from a set of rear half ton chevy springs in each of my YJ spring packs which stiffened the springs and gave me about 7 inches of lift.
