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.

Smoke em if you got em!

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.
Slow ride, take it easy

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.

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
