I would think that would help, those teraflex ones r pretty beefy. I haven't heard of ne issues with running the revolvers up front. I run waggy springs which stretched my rear 2" and I run a set of 1 inch booms, mine look like they would work perfectly on ur setup.

Good stuff. How much difference is there between the waggy and xj springs?

I was thinking the same thing his look like waggy length. I run waggys all around and love them.

IIRC XJ springs provide a 6" stretch, Also to run XJ springs properly you should have one of these cross members :

The BTF Jeep YJ/TJ Rear Axle Stretch Kit is a simple way to relocate your rear axle back about 6 inches to clear larger tires and add much needed wheelbase. Cutting the rear fenders is required for the install of this kit. Included in the kit is a rear bumper, shackle mounts, and two frame side caps. The kit is very simple to install. The kit is designed to work with Jeep XJ rear leaf springs. The stock gas tank needs to be replaced with fuel cell in a new location. Rear Fenders will need to be cut out to allow room for tire in new location. Rear corner body mounts must be removed to allow room for the tire during suspension articulation. Rear drive shaft will need to lengthened. Brake line must be relocated. Must fabricate new lower shock mounts. Uses a Rancho RS9000 shock. (Part # RS9010) Rear Traction Link HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. *No parts are supplied to make these modifications.* Please call if you have any questions. INCLUDED WITH THE BTF TJ/YJ Rear Stretch Kit: One Rear Bumper Assembly with D-Ring Mounts Included and Two Side Frame Plates
