Hey guys. Couple of questions. 1) My 89 Wrangler still has the original factory leaf springs. I play in the mud sometimes, but it's mostly my weekend road ride. I think my leaf springs are sagging some. How can I tell for sure? 2) I'm thinking of getting a 1-1/2" to 2" "add-a-leaf" kit. Will this take care of any sag, or do I need to replace the entire leaf spring assembly? 3) Can I install the "add-a-leaf" kit on front and rear? and finally 4) Can I add a 1" shackle lift to the "add-a-leaf" kit, for a total of 3-4 inches of lift?
Thanks guys. I really like this forum... lot's of knowledgeable Jeepsters here.
You can find 2.5" old man emu springs on quadratec for a very good price, and they will give you a very comfortable ride, might not be bad to replace the shocks as well with cheap skyjacker hydros or if you have the money old man emu again
I just installed a Zone 2" lift last month for the same reason. Very easy to install and recommended. You will also want to purchase (and install) a shackle bushing kit - that's the only thing not included with the Zone kit.

I would stay away from a shackle lift as well as an add a leaf to sagging leafs,, 2.5 old man emu is how I went with their greaseable shackles, love the set up,, not the cheapest but I collected everything over a few months time to lessen the hit on the wallet
