Can you post a link to some pictures? Measuring is a good way but you have to take spring sag in to account, you might want to measure several to get an average. With pictures, we stand a better chance to get it right.

BTW, welcome to the forum........

Stock 77 springs would be a 2 stage design with a short thick tapered leaf acting as an overload. I believe total leaf count including the overload leaf is 7 leaves.

http://s220.photobucket.com/albums/d...nt=Jeep008.jpg Here is a link to a picture. The body is sitting on a 3' body lift and those are 33' tires. I want to replace the springs and shocks. I like how it sits but would rather it be a suspension lift not body.So i am trying to get an idea what size spring lift to get.

Thanks,
Paul
