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.

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.
