I am actually running a pair of QA1 150lb/ft springs up front.
They work well on rocks or low speed trails, but on mud trails with logs or in Dunes, they are too soft.
I calculated the spring rate of my previous setup, rear spring without overweight leaf, and got 200lb/in.
I am thinking to use this 5"/13" 200-450 springs but would like to know if someone try with something similar before. (150-350 on 13" was not available)

Are you running the adapter spacers for tire rub ?

I'm running 36x12.50s, a little smaller than your IROKs but on YJ springs I get no rub.
Yep, but mine rubs on the lower links, not on the chasis.
