Recomendations/Opinions on New Springs

I have an 88 YJ with an AMC 360. Lift is SOA with stock Shackles. I have no idea what springs are on her now. 7 leafs in the front and 6 in the back. There is almost no flex in these springs. Less than 2 ins of drop when we lifted the frame. I measure out at 28" at the rockers with 35" tires. Tires measure 33". I want to put new Springs and Perches all the way around. I have been told the ones on there are fairly thin. Ideally I would like the lift to come down a couple of inches. The recommended springs are the Rubicon 1.5" lift SOA springs which will give me 7" of lift. If I did my math right I have 8" now. SO my question is what is the difference in 5 pack vs 6 pack on the RE springs and are these the best bang for the buck???? Or should I go with 4in lift springs and put it back SUA.... Will the High Steer be a problem?

I installed those leafs on my SOA YJ ~13 years ago with no complaints. I ended up taking the bottom leaf out of the rear six pack to lower it some and to slightly soften the ride. I needed to redial the rear pinion angle when I removed the leaf.

Are the tracbars and swaybar still installed?

Swaybar is back on with disconnects. Trackbar is gone, and it has a High Steer kit on it.
