Rear leafs are flat

I have a 90 xj that is currently stock and I want to do the s-10 bastard lift. I was looking at my rear leafs and they are flat. I was wondering if I can still do it if my xj leafs are flat. I thought leafs were supposed to have a curve in them.

Most stock XJ leaf packs are either flat or even a bit recurved. You can still do a bastard pack, they will get an arch back to them afterwards.

Doesn't really matter on the year for the springs. Your gonna be cutting the eyes off of them anyhow.

To get the most lift they should be off a 4wd but you can use 2wd springs too.
