Those will only lower your jeep. Unless your springs sit on top of your axle.

A stock YJ is called spring under axle. (SUA). lift blocks are only designed to work with SOA (spring over axle) suspensions. And you should NEVER put any kind of lift block on a front axle.

So, even though you can get it cheap, it wont work for you.
