New build, need spring advice....

Hi all, I bought a 92 YJ recently and am in the process of pulling the locked up 4 cyl and installing a 396 Chevy and TH400. Machine work was done years ago for a boat I sold and parts have been greased and bagged for years, so am using what I have. Bought a Novak adapter and and 3 core radiator off an Ebay store. Wiring doesnt bother me, what Im wondering is what springs to use to replace the light ones in the front. Any advice? Donor vehicle swap? Aftermarket recommendations? Add leafs?

Thanks for any advice....Phil.


PS, will be street driven mainly, if this helps.

It already has a 3" BL, am mainly concerned on carrying the big block weight without sagging.

These guys have built a few sets of custom leafs for us, and they always work well. Usually cheaper than most of the brand names too. They're in Grand Rapids, Mi. but might be worth a call
