I know it's a long shot, but here goes nothing!

I'm hoping to find some decent 4.5" leafs to trade for my 6" leafs. South Jersey/Phila area. Must be in similar condition. Mine have not yet seen a winter or driven in salt - but they will! I am **** about washing off salt all winter. Obviously they are less than a year old & wheeled maybe 3 times. This lift is too high for my use with my 1" shackles so they gotta go.

Let me know what you have & we can work something out.

If your still looking for a trade come mid summer I'll trade you. I don't have an sye yet though. I've got a set of Rough Country springs that were installed in June.

I'll call later ... it's 5a.m. here! Can't sleep ...

I guess I might need to specify the brands I would consider trading for: Deaver, Big Offroad, Clayton Offroad's current 4.5" leafs, not their previous set, Rubicon Express (the newer leafs, not the stuff they had before the shut-down). Maybe Rusty's. Maybe ... but I think their spring rate is pretty soft so I might need some Rusty's higher than 4.5 leafs. I'll have to research that. Mine are Clayton Offroad.

It's early in the morning & my brain is not awake so I can't think of other brands right now ... but Rough Country is definitely out, sorry. I have never trusted them. No bastard packs. They need to be sturdy reputable leafs to support a real heavy pig of an XJ. Can't be prone to sagging quickly (altho I know this will be hard to determine). I guess it will depend on the brands being offered.
Thanks guys!

Alright, I love every set of springs I get from Rough Country though. Nice and stiff but still flex out well. My last set was run for over a year with 200lbs of tools in the back every day... not even a tiny bit of sag.

My rustys 4.5 inch lift has bigger shackles and it isn't just the reg 4.5 leaf. It's bigger than standard. I can't remember the term.
