Been awhile, but this is what I've been up too on the XJ. I completely redid the rear suspension using s10 leaf spring but Instead of cutting the eyes off, I used the whole thing including adding 1 of the XJ middle springs. Took them all apart wire wheeled and painted with gloss black tractor paint Rides so much better! I lost about a 1/4" of lift but that's ok seeing how it was raked pretty good. Shackle angle is much better! Here's the kicker. The s10 leaf pack moved the axle backwards almost 3"s!! Now normally this would not be good unless planed for. But my tom woods double Cardone driveshaft came in too long to start with, it would bottom out if I dropped down hard on the rear. So it worked out good. I'm going to leave it stretch and just open up the wheel well but I don't really want to do a compcut. Before and after.
