just replaced mine last week on my 98XJ 4.5 RC liftt. My springs were sagging and shot. I talked to another forum member and he recommended Old man emu 3.5 springs and 3/4 inch rusty's shackles. After it was all said and done my lift measured exactly 4.5 in the rear. Its a great setup and rides much better than my old add a leaf and stock springs. Feel free to IM me if you have any questions or problems.

Silly question: did you get the ADD-a-leaf RC kit, or their FULL leaf kit?
If you bought the add-a-leaf kit, then just buy any stock leaf spring...
And if the main leafs are worn out, you might as well presume the add-a-leafs are worn out too.
Otherwise (and preferably), get some actual 4.5" full leafs! RC's are probably the cheapest, but they are kinda stiff...
