rodeo SAS SOA leaf spring options?

other than the rancho 44044's what are some good factory options out of mabye jeeps or other trucks/suvs that would have a good spring rate and length for rodeos? i really dont want to add a leaf or any of that, and im seeing if its possible to save money over buying new stuff.. ive read alot about using YJ jeep springs in the front.. any ideas?

I'm running BDS YJ springs in my front SOA. I think they are 3" lift, and are full mill wrap. I've been very happy with them, and they are cheaper than the 44044's. About $150 for the pair IIRC.

anything <~50" long would work

toy or isuzu rear springs work well, oem with added leaves, or aftermarket.

I'm sure they are a bit stiffer. They would probably sit pretty flat. It's a good way to gauge how much lift you want from there. The main thing I was looking for was the mill wrap.

Sorry I should have been more clear:

Isuzu and Toyota OEM rears are good SAS front springs.

Or in the aftermarket world you could get aftermarket toyota front springs. (which are about as long as OEM rears)

So my point was ANY springs that are shorter than 50" are good candidates, which opens up a ton of options.
