Default Jeep cherokee coils and leaf packs with slight lift?

I have a 1998 jeep cherokee 4.0 ax15 and currently have a 2 inch spacer and shackle lift on with 30-9.50s. The stocks suspension is shot and sagging horribly and the tires are shot as well. I just want to freshen everything up and gain a little extra height at the same time without buying a (lift kit). I dont know if they made overland type coils and leaf packs for the cherokees but if so they are what i would want to purchase. Does anyone know of they make slightly taller/ stiffer coils and springs for my jeep and if so what are the best ones to buy?

This is suppose to duplicate the "Up Country" optional suspension that was offered for the XJ which is 1" over the std suspension. I'm planning on substituting Dorman leaf springs instead of the Crown.

I have the same year Jeep with same size tires and did the same thing you did and have the same problem. I ordered the Rancho RS44148 leaf springs and the OME930 coil springs. Should put me somewhere between 1.5"-2". It's being installed today and I'll know more later.

I'm interested in how this turns out for you all. I think Stock height XJ's are plenty for what I need + I live in flat land so I only need for light park trails but like you all my stock suspension is shot.

What I like about the DOORMAN LEAF SPRINGS is they seem to come with the Bushings already. I don't think those Crown ones did.

Ive found hd leaf packs on quadratec that claim to give you 2 inches of lift as well. Im very interested to see how the ranchos and ome springs are on yours though.

The dorman leafs aren't the up country style. I just used them this summer. Call them as well. They give about an inch at first but soon settle.

This is mine. I had to take the pic off of a different phone so the quality isnt the best. The rear looks stock or even lower haha.

I went back and forth with what I wanted to do. For what I do with mine, it just didn't make sense to go big. This setup is perfect for me. I'll take it out this weekend and play around a little.

Yea I know. The Crown are. I was going to use the Dormans because they have the bushings already installed. THANKS for letting me know about the settling.
