Front leaf springs

I am running a set of Procomp 4" lift springs for a 79-85 toyota on the front of my CJ crawler. But I broke a main. Drivetrain is SBC406/465/205 on tons. The Procomps lasted for a few yrs and I actually bought them for cheap used. But what is the goto Yota spring?
Thanks

Screw that I run YJ's on the rear for now. I like a short approach and departure angle. The rear will get linked sometime. I thought about linking the front. But it would be a massive undertaking. So it will stay leafs.
But I'm interested in what brands you yota guys are using and the results.

Yeah I was thinking that and had YJs front and rear on my last CJ. I said screw it and ordered up 2 of the 31211L Procomp springs. The main that broke was the 31211R that is the shorter spring. Figured I'd get rid of the spacer I have under the spring pack to level it,and gain a little up a touch of up travel. Figured they have been working fine for the few yrs since I installed them. They are cheap and no changes needed.
Thanks

Looks like it broke to protest all the rock stacking that we just saw.

Most Yota guys are running some flavor of 4wd Yota pickup rear leaf springs built into bastard packs. Or just off the shelf Trail Gear/All Pro/Sky/etc front packs if the dimensions work for your hangers.

I know my buddy is a rock staking fool. He's not really a crawler. SxS guy. What's funny is I didn't even go over the rocks he stacked. After the break we they all looked and didn't see anything. I drove up the next ledge and parked got out and went and spotted the other 2 rigs. My son notice the leaf was broken when he went to turn down the fans adjustable switch.
