leaf sping replacement question

I heard a strange clunking sound from the rear end while driving home. Looked at it this morning and found that the lower leaf on the passenger side rear is broken. Need to replace of course. Should i replace both rear leaf spings, and shackles. How much should I expect to pay. This is a stock 1995 YJ, all original , 150k+ on the motor. Thanks for any help.

Plan on around $100 per spring. Also want to have a cut-saw, die grinder or saw-zaw w/a metal blade to cut through the bolts in case they are stuck in the sleeves.

I just did mine over the last few days only I went w/a 4" lifted leaf spring on each one.

Check it out, (I took lots of photos to...)

If it fits your budget, I would recommend new springs all the way around. Maybe even a lift. Lift springs are pretty much the same cost as new replacement ones. Your stock shackles should be fine unless they are showing a lot of rust.
