YJ leaf spring alternative

I have 4" Rough Country springs with SUA, I'm putting in Dana 44 axles and going SOA. With the 4" lift spring will make me too high and they ride like a lumber wagon. I'm looking for a softer ride without spending tons of $$.... Should I just look for stock replacement springs or are there other springs that will work too ?? I'm ok with a little extra lift... It also has a SBC, 700R4 and 208 case in it !!

People have run OME 36rs with success. Replacement heavy duty stock springs would work well.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

OME = Old Man Emu. The 36r's are the part number.

I'm pretty sure Morris is a sponsor, so hopefully ok to post the link. I got my top from them, pretty good customer service.

Those are the springs I'm saving for to replace my stock springs. Not too much lift, excellent ride. Another alternative I've heard lately is the Zone Offroad kits. Less pricey, but not OME.

Re 1.5" soa springs are sweet. I love mine. I have never seen a set that doesn't flex like crazy.

BDS 2" springs are favorites with SOA lifts and heavy duty drivetrain
