Yj lift

I'm looking to soa my 95 yj wrangler but I'm not sure what I'd need to get for all this. Also my jeep is lifted already 2.5" rough country . So my question is would I be able to use the 2.5 leaf springs for the soa if so how much of a lift would I have or should I look for stock leaf springs

You would be able to use them, but would have around 7 inches of overall lift depending on spring condition. This has been done many times, and you could use the search function and find all the answers. Good luck!

Give the Rough Country springs some time, they will be negative arched before you know it.

Joey, have you searched the SOA threads in the FAQ in the YJ section? Because there is a lot more (especially $$) that goes into a viable and more importantly, SAFE SOA lift. It is more than simply moving the springs. I do have a Rubicon Express SOA kit that is NIB I bought a few years ago before I decided to go LCOG instead of SOA.

LCOG= low center of gravity

Like being able to use 36" tires with a 2" suspension lift (no body lift at all) and SUA (spring under axle)
