I believe the width is 2.5" and I dont know the length but i guess it would depend on rather its a stock spring or lift spring

My guess is they'll be stiff as hell even if they do fit. They were made for a much heavier vehicle

second that.

do not buy em. those springs ride stiff as hell on a FORD, much less a jeep that weighs much much much less.

^plus, no way in hell will those leaf springs fit, yj springs are 2 1/2in Wide and 22 11/16in x 22 11/16in on center so....45 3/8in eye to eye. (so says thesuspensionking.com) from what i have seen so far, jeep springs are generally smaller than pretty much everything else. Ive done a lot of looking into this sort of thing for an axle swap that is planned this year.

even if you bought thos springs you would have to relocate hangers, and as mentioned above, it would ride stiff as rigor-mortis

Yj- when the speed limit is no longer a restriction, but rather a challenge ready to be conquered every time.
