best spring to use on dana 60 swap

Alright, the time has come. Stuffing a set of one tons under my scrambler. Wanna keep it low low. This is going to be a budget build, and looking for leaf spring ideas that are easy to find. want it soft and flexy. And havent decided whether or not to do a shackle reversal at the same time. I have heard yj rears in the front and waggy fronts in the rear?
Looking for your two cents.

well, SUA would be nice to keep it really low, just not sure if I've got the balls to cut the housing of my 60! so i am thinking soa front, and could consider sua out back.

I'm running BDS 2.5" YJ springs SOA w/ D60's - been working great - need some type of anti-wrap in the rear or you'll twist them up quickly.
