what suspension is this?

Hey guys its almost time to change out the springs on my cj they are old and sagging, I was wondering what size springs they are. I didn't put the lift on it I was the po but it is a rough country, and it appears to also have a 1in body lift here are some pics, im guessing the springs are 2 1/2in, this is how it sits with 33's and no tc drop kit also

If they are 2-1/2" wide, could be YJ springs.

Front and rear are both 2.5". Stock CJ rears (76 an up) are 2.5" wide. Only the fronts are 2" wide.

Checked again and only rears are 2.5 front is 2, so they are cj springs, if I wanted to stay away from doing a tc drop how much lift could I go from the springs?

One inch BL should be fine, nothing more than a heavier duty body bushing. You plan on trail riding this Jeep?

Yes nothing extreme just around Ocala and river ranch, but would 5in of total lift make my 33's look to small?
