"Ghetto" coil spring boosters...

As long as you stay on flat pavement and don't do any flexing, strictly for posing. You'll want to buy extras, these sometimes pop out when you hit a pothole. When they come out it's only a problem for the person behind you.

Put on really small tires you'll look lifted from far away.

You can also fill tires with helium and it will look bigger.

I'm confused....

1) You said "coil" when it's a YJ and 2) Even with coils, how the hell do those things work?

they screw in between two of the coils on the spring and make the space larger, like wedging something in there and spreading them apart.

You are right, YJ's don't have coils. I didn't think to look at what type of jeep the OP had.
As for how they work, the previous post is correct they twist in and gap a section of the spring further apart. These things are typically meant to be used for weak or failing spings to give you a little extra life out of the springs. I was simply attempting to have a little fun with this.

Cut 4 pieces of 2*4 into desired length and install between axle and frame with a sledge hammer.
