need help with bastard pack for SOA

so ill be starting my 8.8 SOA build soon and want some opinions. ive tried looking but nothing was specific to what i want to try

right now im running 4" pro comp springs with some beef 3/4" shackles.

i have some stock yj springs and some 1/2" booms that i plan on running.

what i am wondering is if i can make a bastard pack with my pro crap springs and stock to make the stock springs last a little longer. i dont want much height thats why im going with stock springs but i've heard sag REAL quick and dont last too long.

if i just used to main leaf from the pro comps would that help out? i know a lot of people are using s10 springs or XJ springs but those arent in the plans for right now, at least.



thanks in advance

That is what I would do.
The main leaf from the Pro Comp springs will have the open clamps.
It will help the leaves span out when flexing.

I'm running stock springs with an extra yj main in the rear for about a year and it's a little stiff. You could try running the procomp main with the rest of the yj pack, whats the worst that happens you take it back out. Are you planning on running a traction bar?

your going to have to set the two springs next to each other on the floor and look at them to see what u can/wanna use from the two to make 1... sounds like it should work fine.

on my last set up i had a stock YJ main spring, next was Rancho 2" add a leaf, and then a 3" 3 leaf toyota add a leaf. I got also 4" over a stock setup and it rode great. Flex like mad cause all the leafs are thin.
