Sounds like you have a 4-5" lift plus extended shackles maybe. You need to measure your shackles eye to eye before deciding they are longer than stock.
Then get under there and have a good look at the leafs. How many are there? Are the ends wrapped in a C or an O? An O is a complete wrap and stronger.
Have you had it running? Is it overstiff?
Have you got a winch, hardtop?
