Rubicon Express vs Old Man Emu

I have a 1982 CJ7 with the stock suspension and a body lift that allows me to run 31's. I want to upgrade to 33's and am in the market for a 2.5" lift that will accomidate the new tires. Ride quality is an important factor to me and the Old Man Emu converts both front and rear leafs springs to a YJ spring. However the Rubicon only converts the front to YJ springs.

Old Man Emu is much more expensive and the kit is not as complete however the reviews are good for the ride quality.

Rubicon Express is a very complete kit however I don't know about the ride quality.

I realize the CJ7 will alway be a bumpy ride however I am looking for some middle ground on performace vs ride quality.

Thanks for the help
