Used springs

Here in Provo, there's a local guy that parts out Jeeps. I bought a few things and got to talkin' to him, and he's got a whole cache of 2.5" lift springs he'd be willing to sell for cheap, which is the lift I want (for now, at least).
Should I chance it, when the time comes, or pay a little more for a brand new kit?

My preferred leaf spring is a worn and saggy 2.5". You dont need a kit.

If the price is right, and that's what you want, then absolutely. Save a lot of money buying someone elses "not big enough" equipment.

When I talked to him, he was selling then for about 100 each. In suppose I'm just worried about initial quality and longevity.

Then he is high. My brand new BDS springs were a little more than $100 each. I wouldn't pay more than $50 each if they are used but high quality.

Yeah, that's a little much for used. Even 2.5" lift. Most people selling stock size, no sag here want 25 bucks each. My brand new, custom made to original specs were 120 each (Canadian prices, always cost more than my southern neighbours). I would be looking at about 160 for the lifted ones at that shop that made mine. And that's new prices. He is trying to rip you off for sure. Talk him down.

Maybe I have a worse memory than I thought.
I'll have to talk to him again.

I must be misremembering what he quoted me, then.

After I get the springs, what else would I need. Shocks, I'm sure. Brake lines? Anything else?
