I have a set of rear lift springs that are either 5.5" or 6" lift (don't remember) custom built springs. These springs were made by Natonal Spring Co. back in about 1993. They were only on the new (street driven) XJ Limited for about 3 weeks (500-600 miles) (along with his new A/T BFG 35's) when the owner decided his Jeep was too high and too hard for his wife to get in and out of. So we put some 4" springs on it and some 31's and he was happy. These springs have been stored on a shelf in my shop since they were removed.

You can have the leaf springs (both) for $250.00 + the ride.

Let me know if you are interested!

I know what you mean about the AAL's, they suck!! I had them on the back of my full size Cherokee for a while. Hated them!!

As I remember these springs were softer than the Rancho leaf packs that I currently have on the back of my 91 XJ. They have about twice as many leafs but they are thinner leafs than the Rancho springs. The guy we installed them for never complained about the springs being too stiff, only that the Jeep sat too high. I haven't delt with them for many years but Natonal Springs use to be known for making leaf springs with very good ride quality but were always kind of pricey. They use to make a lot of the springs for desert racers too.
