Waggy Spring Lift Questions

I have a 2 sets of waggy springs to lift my 93 YJ. I have a couple questions before I undertake this lift. I will be using some 5/8 in boomerang shackles with these springs. For the bushings, do I need YJ specific bushings or just new bushings for the waggy springs? Also what type of bushing would best suit this lift? This will be an occasional street driver with mostly trail use.

Next question, one set of springs appears to be newer (they're clean), the other set has surface rust and looks older. What would be best way to paint these? I don't want to hassle with undoing the springs, I was thinking sand down what i could and rustoleum spray bomb it.

You will need bushings for the waggy spring eye size. Then the correct size sleeves to go inside them. If memory serves u need 1/2" sleeves for the shackle ends and 9/16" sleeves for the frame ends. Personally I run poly bushings. They might not be quite as soft as the stock rubber, but they last a heck of a lot longer. Just be sure to grease them when installing.

As for paint, yeah u could just clear the surface rust and spray bomb them. Though it's better to tear them down and do each leaf individually.

edit:
you do know also that the Waggy springs, in addition to providing lift, can be used for stretch purposes as well correct? if you install them for stretch you will need to do some driveshaft modifications and lengthen your brake lines at the minimum
