Opinions on these springs

I need to replace the damaged front springs on my '92. Since I want to lift the rig it would be stupid to replace with stock ones. This is my daily driver I put 150-200 miles or less on a week usually. Rig would see light off road use, occasional mudding & access road use for hunting. I occasionally tow a 14' aluminum fishing/hunting boat or a small utility trailer for house /yard maint. I plan to put 31x10.5 Kenda Kleevers on 15x8 rims.

These are the springs I am leaning towards. I would use 1/2" shackles with these ones.

rear http://www.quadratec.com/products/16203_021.htm
Opinions on ride, propensity to sag, overall quality?

My budget for springs/tires/rims is $1000 so by buying used rims & these springs I should get it done and have enough left over for a tank of gas and dinner with the wife.
Thanks for the input.

Forgot to add it's a '92 with a 4.0 and 5speed hardtop & full doors and otherwise bone stock for now.

If that is all the lift you want, I would pony up a couple extra bucks and go for the Old Man Emu, only twenty bucks more....I run RE 4", but have heard nothing but good about OME. I would also replace all the bushings and get the Bilstein 5100s, I do run them and highly recommend them.

I have the ome. Found them used from a cj guy who had done a yj conversion and then decided he wanted 4" instead of 2.5". Got springs and shocks for 500. Check all the forums and you can probably get some like I did.

Or check craigslist, just make sure to inspect everything. I bought used springs and broke one of the rears the first time I went wheeling.

BDS has a lifetime warranty if you're the original purchaser, not sure about OME.

Say someone gets the 2.5 OME, what other modifications would have to be done to make eveything right? Like steering wise..

Each jeep is different. I ran with my worn out(already taking a dump) tierod and draglink for a year before I got fed up with it, just get a sye, and the free brake line extension is always good
