Critique my lift plan

My plan is to use BDS 4" lift front leaf springs designed for a Wagoneer in the front and rear of my YJ. This will give me the stretch I'm looking for. In addition, I'll do a 1" body lift and add boomerang shackles. I want enough clearance to run 35 x 12.50 tires. If that's not quite enough, I can get boom shackles made a little longer.
Has anyone here ever used lift springs for a Wagoneer on their YJ? I've heard of others using the stock front springs, but not lift springs. I also wonder if I'll get more than 4" of lift.
Before anyone suggests it, I'm not interested in doing a SOA.

I'm not to sure about the lift, but I would make plans for the steering, brakes, and axles while you're at it
