For one - running a suspension built for a full size truck on a light little Jeep wont do anything. The springs are waayyy too stiff for them to flex under a Jeep.

You may be able to remove a leaf from the packs. As AZTJ mentioned, you are running springs designed for a much heavier vehicle.

lol...that step is soo f'n gay. Def. not my style but if it works, great.

As for flex...Have you removed the front and rear track bars? How about the discos? What kind of shocks are you running? Did you just pull them off a truck or did you buy from a company. Do you know the stroke?
