CJ or YJ spring measurements?

I built a trailer the other day using some old dodge caravan springs and axle, but they are too soft, but the hangers are already welded. They are like 2.5" wide and 47" eye to eye. Anyone know if CJ or YJ springs are about the same? I can't find any here at the local junk yard so I was thinking of ordering some from JC whitney, but I need to know if they will fit first. Thanks.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing when I saw how many of those things are at the PNP yards, they are crazy soft though, you'd probably need two or three sets to make a decent pair. Still not a bad idea.

IIRC waggy front springs are also 47" with about an inch offset center pin.

Why not a pair from an old pickup? A trailer doesn't need flex

I've been hunting at the old pick and save, but nothing from a pickup seems to fit the bill. Either 3" wide or too long. I already welded the hangers and don't want to have to cut them off and re-do them and the springs are staying 2.5" wide, so says the axle (it has 4 bolt holes where the U bolts mount through a flange) and I don't want to have to modify it that much. I am still looking, but around here it is hard to find a pair of springs, usually one is missin.
