XJ Springs For YJ SOA

I had a quick question about using XJ spring in the SOA set up for a YJ.
I hear I can gain a few inches of wheel base in the rear with them, but how much?
Also approx how high will the lift be with the XJ springs? D30/8.8 axles.

6'' wheelbase and about the same lift as a 1.5'' lift spring SOA. Unless you add some leafs to the mix you can get more height.

Most, if not all, XJ springs I see that are STOCK negatively arch within a few months of wheelin' under YJ's that have used them in the rear.

I would recommend putting another mainleaf from an XJ pack to stiffen it up and give it a little more "life" before it starts to sag a little. That or a Old Man Emu AAL.
