Question What springs for my S.O.A to run 37 boggs

Ok here is the deal I got to clear 37 boggers on my YJ, I have a 2-inch body lift already and flat fenders up front and Tj flares in the rear..If I use stock springs sprung over I wont have enough lift so If I combine Yj stock springs and some 2inch lift springs will I have enough lift? What should I do??The 2inch lift springs are pretty S shaped so I cant use them all together.. <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0">

I've got SOA,O.M.E 2.5" all around w/MORE SRS and Buggy kit and my 37's still hit, I also have flat top fenders but with SRS they flex toward the rear of the front fender and at full tilt they hit...I need to cut out or fab some kind of fender like I've been seeing on POR recently!
I also run a 1" BL

I"m gonna say something that seems like a bad word around here... lowered bumpstops <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> I know its a shocking idea <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> but its the only way to keep the tires out of the fenders, more lift won't do nothing to keep the tires from compressing so far.

Don't know how much this will help, but Im planning on running 37" SSRs in oct. when my SOA, and axle swap is done. Im going SOA on 2" springs, with my flatfender front, tj flares rear, and a 1.25" body lift, I don't forsee any problems.

I don't know if you will be able to clear with the combo you've described.
I have 4in springs with an additional main leaf(not the eye leaf) in the rear along with a 2 in body lift. I've trimmed the body as far as I can. I'd say either 4in springs OR trim the body as much as possible and go with 2in springs also adding leaves from stock packs or the main leaf from your sagged out 2inchers.

i am runnig the 37 bogger. i have 3.5 bds springs soa, no front fenders and tj flares in the back till i decide i wanna rip them off and cut out more sheetmetal. i can easily run a 39 - 40 inch tire. i ran the same tires when i did have front fenders. im guessing ya prolly only need a 2 inch lift spring, oh yeah i dont run bumpstops eaither <IMG SRC="smilies/flipoff.gif" border="0">

On my soa 72cj5 with 44 in front and Eb 9" in the rear and stock springs 1.5" body I can easily clear 37" boggers. I would imaging 2" springs would give u more than ample room.
