Not many companies make them that way. I think one makes "military wrap" style springs for FSJ's. The second spring wraps around the first ones eyelets in case it breaks.

Although they are nice, they are not a must. Not everyone wheels hard enough to break them.

The add a leafs are from rustys... This isn't gonna b a hardcore wheeler by no means. I'm not at the house this morning to do the measuring. But it doesn't make sense to me why it still sits un level. I've got everything correct according to the instructions. Could the springs just be wore out that much? And as far as the body bushings, there all dry rotted but not too bad. Pretty equal all the way around. Once I get off work this evening ill measure and post what I find out. Until then keep the recommendation coming!!

After measuring from the axle to the frame on each corner, these are the numbers I come up with.
Left front 12 3/4
Right front 13 3/4

Left rear 15
Right rear 15 3/4

Doesn't sound like much but it definitely has a lean.. And when I get it of course it's way worse. I DO NOT have shocks mounted right now but this shouldn't make that much of a difference should it? When I sit in the passenger side it looks a ton better...

Is that about the same as before you swapped sides with the springs.
I loosen all shackle bolts a bit, maybe you have one binding.

I didn't measure it but appearance wise it seems to be the same if not worse...

Shocks shouldn't make a difference. If your confident in the geometry of the modification, nothing as far as shackles or spring mounts are over torqued and binding. Well, how was it's stance before sf/soa (I'm assuming same springs). Eliminate the possibilities till your down to new springs.
Ya didn't forget to move a jack stand did ya jk

Seems like it had a little lean but nothing like now...and I wish the problem was just a jack stand, removing that is a lot cheaper than springs. Lol

disconnect the track bars and see what happens. My 90 has front and rear t bars and it causes a left lean unless you lengthened them or customized brackets for it.
