SOA spring help

I have a 95 yj. I need to replace the springs. The springs are factory. Don't want a lot of lift. Just need to replace the springs. Can i swap them out with any other manufacturers springs?

if you do a soa with stock springs you will get 5.4" of lift .
and yes you can use any brand aftermarket springs that are made for your yj, but if you buy a 4" lift spring and install them as a soa then you would get 9.4" of lift and that is a lot of lift that would require custom drive shafts, brake lines, longer shocks,transfer case drop, and the list keeps going

Is there anything I can get from a junk yard that would help me get about 1 more inch and be more flexable than stock?

Add a leaf to the spring pack perhaps might give a bit more lift, but not sure how it would work with more flex.
