I have ZJ lift springs. And I know all to well about spring rates.
Of course the ride will differ and that is the just of what I was stating. I know several ppl who run the ZJ springs. Nothing wrong with it at all. The jeeps that rode like crap were 4cyl TJ's with V8 zj springs with no added weight. Very stiff ride. Also most people who do a ZJ spring swap do it because they are on a little or no budget. Just like alot of us. But most all reviews are bias, If all someone knows is stock or modded with ZJ spring how can they truly give a accurate review of it compared to other lifts?
Junkyard springs are going to be broken in whether you get them from the 6cyl or 8cyl will be determine the spring rate...also there was the factory upcountry ZJ spring with an even stiffer coil rate and net almost 1'' more lift.
I don't know what is on your jeep I was simple letting you know a few facts. To help you out. Not steer you away from doing the swap.
Anything else bud let us know.
