You can go with 4" spring and Put spring over axle kit and will give you approx. 7"-71/2" of lift or you can have custom springs made . I've seen national springs 10" of lift spring under axle .
Good luck

How much lift are you looking for? You can combine a 4" lift with a mild shackle lift, shackle reversal w/ or w/o buggy springs (for the front).

You could also have springs made to your specs by a good spring shop, as Jim stated. These are not always so expensive.

There are so many custom suspensions out there, one will likely fit your bill, but these may be more expensive.

I may be wrong, but I think, that in addition to much better articulation, that Revolver shackles also give you some baseline lift.

If you want more than 4"s of lift do an SOA. That'll give you 5"s and add 2 1/2" springs if you want more. Just remember the higher you go the more it'll cost. You'll need an SOA if you want to run larger than 36" tires.

Doesn't a SOA with stock springs give you 5-6 inches of lift?
Found a 85 CJ7 tub in good shape with
minimal rust. The resto continues....
