Quality, I suppose. I've seen stock replacements for around $75 each new at the cheapest. I got my OMEs for ~$90ea...

You could get a full RC lift for the price of a few OEM/OME springs but you'll probably wish you hadn't... IMO

I see used stock springs on CL every now and then , usually less than $200 . The CJ guys love them for SUA . Probably doesn't help you tho . I know where there is a set in a JY around here for $75 a pack off a 94 . There is also 2 front and 1 rear Military wrap about 3" lift for same price . They also have spring plates that cover the u bolt nuts I think R/E makes them . If anyone is interested .

I use my YJ for a daily driver, so not really interested in a lift kit if it's going to make the ride rougher
If that's possible...lol

No. I was at a restaurant and it was parked outside the window of the booth in which I was dining. I couldn't stop staring at it.

Haha I hate when that happens. My gf got mad at me once because I was paying more attention to the front suspension of an xj sitting outside than I was to her.
