reverse arch YJ rears in D44 front

Okay, so I may get flamed, but I'm in need of help. I have a nissan pathfinder with a D44 from a wagoneer in front and I originally was told that YJ rear springs would hold up the front no problem, well that guy screwed up and there's some major reverse arch in the springs and it's hitting my centerlink. We threw some 2" softride springs on there, and it has about an inch of positive arch and the truck is way up there! About 9.5" over stock (SOA).

So, I'm wondering if anyone can suggest a CJ or YJ spring that maybe wouldn't put the truck up so high as the 2" lift springs (I want it as low as possible for now, I'm running into problems liftin the rear that much). I'm trying to find a set of front YJ springs to see if the extra leaf will help much, so if anyone has a set i'd be interested. Or, can anyone recomend a spring that would sit near perfectly flat, or a spring that I can get away with some slight negative arch and not risk breaking the spring when flexing. Maybe 1.5" lift springs? It's a 3.0L V-6 so it's not going to be as heavy as your guys' 4.0L engines. You all know more than I do so englisten me, please! thanks for all advice.

If worse comes to worse, does anyone have any 2" lift springs (leafs) they could sell me?
