Okay I have mono leafs in my rear end and was wondering if putting a block kit in it would damage it? I know they aren't steel and are made from like fiberglass or something along those lines. I have the block kit but I don't want to put it on if its going to mess up my leafs

What is a mono leaf? Would never consider blocks unless they were solid steel

What year jeep? And where are you located in PA?
Do those monoleafs sit flat? Looking at them mounted- if the mounting bolts were in a straight line- how much arch is there in the spring?
Those fiberglass monoleafs are usually from older Chevy AstroVan. If you get a set of RC rear leafs, I might take those monoleafs.

It's a 96 sport. I live in SW Pa like by Pittsburgh. I'm not sure what you mean by the mounting bolts but it doesn't sit flat the have a arch but nothing significant

If you were to try and measure the height of the arch what would it be?
They look like Flex-Form springs.
