2wd S-10 leaf springs on an xj

I saw this recently somewhere on one of the forums, but cant find it now. Anyone know how much lift this will give??? How far back they move the axle?? If the stock driveshaft will work. thanks

You thinking about adding the S10 main leaf, or using the whole S10 pack?

I took a set of 2wd s10 springs off of a '92 s10. I took apart my xj spring packs leaving only my XJ's main leaf in place. I then cut the eyes off of the s10 springs and seperated the s10 leaf packs. I re-assembled the S10 leaf pack under my XJ attaching them to my remaining XJ main leafs. The result was a cheap 4.5 inch rear lift with full spring packs.

I used 2wd S-10 springs, but I cut the eyes off and added them to the XJ main leaf. I got around 5" lift.

As far as I'm aware, 2wd S-10 leaf springs packs are the same as 4wd S-10 leaf springs.

probably are the same just asking about the 2wd ones cause i have a set laying here. This project is going to be on the cheap, I will have less than 900 bucks in the whole deal, with all the parts I mentioned above
