factory cj 4150 gvwr hd leaf springs

My 77 cj5 came with the hd 4150 gvwr springs that were apparently an option with the T18 4 speed. After reading a post yesterday about how to measure to figure out how much lift is on a cj it seems that my jeep with the factory hd springs came with 1"-1 1/2" of lift in stock form. They are military double wrap springs. Is this true? Thanks

I was thinking of going to a 2 1/2" lift but it seems that it wouldn't have given me as much as I thought. Does anyone know about these hd option springs?

My 80 CJ-5 came with the 4150 GVWR suspension. As I remember, it seemed to sit slightly higher that Jeeps with the 3750 GVWR suspension. I never took any measurements for comparison.
