leaf spings

I have an 91 yj 2.5l 4"sus.lift 2"body lift 27" tires soon to be 33, with an homemade air intake. I hate leaf spings, I find they take off clearance, so i would like to do one of 2 things
1- make the leaf spings go over the axel instead of under
2- Buy and install a full coil conversion

or just to get more wheel travel would it just be better to buy extendable leaf sping shacles by terraflex

I guess it comes down to how much money you want to spend. Neither a Spring-over-Axle (SoA) nor coil conversion is exactly a cheap proposition. Longer-than-stock shackles will give you a small lift on the cheap.

However, if you're only going with 33's, you probably have all the lift you need already. You shouldn't have any major clearance or articulation issues with the lift setup you already have. That, of course, is just my humble opinion. Now, if you have the money to do an SoA or coil conversion, I'll be the LAST person to try to persuade you differently...
