Stock springs or aftermarket?

279 8
So I was at the junk yard today looking for a couple trim pieces and I ran across a zj like mine and what caught my eye was the coils. So my question is how can I tell if the springs are OE or after market? I cleaned the shock off and it was an old man emu shock. Curious if they are worth pulling off. I’ll drop some pictures thanks for the info.

On my 3 ZJs all the coils were black, and the stock UC coils I bought later on were black.

Red not sure, I'd grab them. And the BB pucks too. Even if you don't want a BB, they can be cut laterally and used as levelers.

So I just got out the junk yard. Anyone know the stock coil length to compare. I grabbed the pucks too. Let’s say they are stick with what I got including mine in the Jeep how can we get little tire clearance? The previous owner put these tires and wheels and they rub bad

Ive never seen a red old man emu spring/shock, but if those are OME, they are the best you can get.

I'm about 100% sure coils and shocks are painted, brand unknown but could be OME if that's what the info was on the vehicle.
