Help me with springs!

Well I am wanting to upgrade my lift on my cj. Looking at having alcan do me some lift springs for my cj. What do you guys think, I quoted cj stuff but how much if any would i benefit from the wider springs on front? Kinda been wanting to do this, and do a set of the yj conversion hangers that Jim makes. Any opinions on this matter? Thanks!

I'm doing the YJ spring conversion on my CJ also. Still waiting on the springs though. But wanted to give you a thumbs up on the spring hangers from Jim. I bought a set and have mounted them. You will not be disappointed.
