If you are running stock xj springs in the rear which i assume you are based on what you are describing I would recommend the following.

With a 38" tire I would recommend running a 1.5" Rubicon Express spring if you are going spring over. Given that you are running 38's you can also get away with a stock YJ spring with a spring over. There are some other things left open here. What are you doing to mount the springs? The suggestions I gave are based on running our full width kit.

If you have any questions feel free to PM me. I can not always catch these posts.

Better pay attention to the steering if you are moving the front forward

Can someone tell me why the bolts don't line up for me? It looks like they're offset a little bit but they won't match up at all. Any info will help Thanks
