toyota springs?

Most of my searches brought up soa or sami stuff... Anybody running toyota springs on their yj? looking for a few inches of lift since i need to replace the stock springs anyway... What would 5" lift toy springs do to a yj height wise?

toyota full size or compact or old FJ? aside from old FJs toyota's are IFS, so would you be running the rear springs up front too?

older toyota's are leaf sprung... the only real issue i'm coming across is if i'm right the front springs are an almost perfect match for yj springs... but the rear's aren't centered, and length on the rears varies between years

i've come across a dirt cheap set of 5" toy springs in a package deal cheaper than a set of 4" yj springs i was considering picking up... so i'm doing some digging to find out if they'll work

5" lift toy fronts are 46" 23"/23" 2 3/8" wide
5" lift toy rears are 2 3/8" wide but slightly different depending on year but are a bit longer than the fronts... and the pin is off center, which i'm not that worried about, as long as the overall length isn't to much i could just redrill for the pin

i'm waiting for him to get back to me with the length of the rear springs...

a stretch on a yj wouldnt be a new thing, i'd go for it. You could move the front spring perch forward a bit on the yj frame depending on where the pins are at.
