RC vs BDS
Well on my BDS springs I have the military wrap on both ends.
OK just went out and looked at my springs, like I said both seem to be full wrap where the end is about 1/4 to 1/2 inch away from touching the first leaf.
Don't know if that helps but that is how mine is.

Reason: added some more info
The 1/2" bolts wallowed out the holes in the frame on one side. I drilled the holes out to 13/16" and turned some bushing to bring the hole size back to 9/16". Hopefully the holes on the front frame are OK.
Went back and measured. The holes in the frame are 9/16 but the spring eye bushings and bolts are 1/2". Somebody screwed up. I'll have to find 9/16" bushings and greasable bolts.
The 9/16 bushings could have been reused from the original springs and the poly ones drilled to size. And in my opinion, greasable bolts are overrated.
Its an old post being quoted and I know you've gone in a different direction but hindsight is 20/20 but forums help the next guy. Nice to have options for the next time it happens because let's face it: YJ's will be around forever.
