Yj leaf springs

My springs are tired and I'm looking for options to gain a little more lift. I already built longer shackles. Would it be worth my time to add a helper spring or should I bite the bullet and just order a lift kit? Thanks

If you're not doing anything major with it, go with a spring-over lift. They're cheap and easy. I ran 35s with my fenders stock and they were fine. I cut defenders and I fit 38s but I had to have wheelspacers

If you are going up with the shackle lift you add you are going to need that slip yoke eliminater kit and a cvc style drive staft . I found out the hard why that slip yoke no work with 4 inch left and 1 inch shackle ..
