Where can I find just 4in lift leaf springs?

So i have a 95 YJ, and it currently has Procomp 4inch lift springs and shocks. And it's closely related to a vacum, it sucks lol. So where can i find just springs, without having to buy a whole new lift kit?

Did you already try to make the Pro-Comp work better? Did you check the bolt torque and grease the bushings, etc.? Any of your local 4x4 shops will be able to get you just the springs, same with many of the vendors in magazines and maybe even vendors here. Do some research and read some customer reviews of different kits before you buy, so you don't end up with the same situation. Some of the kits may have been designed to work with the shocks in their "kit". It may be worth buying another complete kit and then selling yours. Boomerang shackles may help soften the ride a little too. I'm sure some people on here can give you opinions of what they like, I prefer Rubicon Express, but it may be tough to find some springs right now as they are going through a bankruptcy. They are supposed to be opening again in a month or two I believe, maybe partnered up with another company.
Edit: 4" springs are naturally going to be a little stiffer due to their arch, and they to take a little time break in and soften up. Maybe go jump it a couple times.

i haven't loosened everything up and then tightened it back down yet. but i did take off the front sway bar, it seemed to help with bumps a lot! so i'll go to some 4x4 shops to see what they can do. but yeah, im from florida but im in hawaii. i just set up my profile for florida because i don't trust the 4x4 guys here lol

Pull your track bars as well. If you look at how the suspension works, you can see that the leaf springs want to move pretty much straight up and down, with a little twist of course. Now look at the angle of your track bar, when the suspension tries to go up on the passenger side, the track bar will try to go up as well, in turn it pushes the axle to the passenger side away from the frame in a way that the leafs are not supposed to flex, causing it to bind up. Patience Grasshopper, I think you may be much happier tweaking your current suspension and saving the money up for other upgrades. It's good that you are doing one thing at a time and then driving it so you can feel the effects of the changes you made.
Edit: It looks like your front shocks are on correctly, but check the back as well. I believe the shock body (white part) should be down. I had my rears in upside down for a bit, and it was much stiffer.
