Default Leaf springs

Been lurking for a while now and I have a question. First off I have an '01 Limited. I read somewhere that Limited's have softer leaf springs for a smoother ride? Is this true?

I have about 2000 miles on a 2" spacer/shackle lift and the rear springs are sagging bad. I'm looking at either the Crown 4886186AA "upcountry" leafs or the OME leafs and taking the 3rd leaf out and going back to my stock rear shackle. Hoping to get 2-2.5" lift in the back without an inverted leaf haha

I've never heard of the limited's having softer leaf packs. Maybe someone else with more experience can chime in on it though

I'm not aware of the limited having different leafs either.

The ome cs033rb with one leaf removed will give you about 2.5" over stock, the upcountry leafs will give you about 1.5". I am not sure if the stock shocks will be long enough for the OME leafs. I don't think they are just not certain. Maybe someone else will know.
