SWB jeeper needs fjs suspension advice

As the title indicates, I need some advice from experienced FSJ owners. I own a 93 Wrangler and had a nice 97 Grand Cherokee. The question relates to using wagoneer front leafs to lift the jeep and increase wheelbase. I'm looking to get 4" springs to get approx 6" of lift, which brands are good, I've seen BJs offroad has some 4 leaf springs. Secondly, I currently have a 4" RC lift with 5/8" lift boomerang shackles and all greasable poly bushings, I would like to keep a set up with greasable poly bushings, but I can't find ones for Wagoneers, does someone make them?

P.S. My first ride in a Jeep was my grandparents '77 Wagoneer, back in'84, wasn't their first or last. Drove them till 1990 when they got their 1st XJ.

Just for clarification, you're looking to install FSJ fronts on your YJ for the wheelbase stretch, right?
