Remove the leaf springs and replace them with coils or coil-overs.

Do you need more flex or more traction? Lockers solve a lot of issues.

SOA. the flex is in the springs. stiff springs = no flex. I like the Rubicon express 1.5 for a SOA. don't like using more than a 1" shackle lift. causes sway with the large shackle lift as well as throwing off the front caster angle.

you can get "bomberang shackles" which will give you a little more flex over regular ones. some companies may callthem somthing different just remember there curved like a bomberang... just look at some different ones and read there reveiws...

Go wheel it, if they are new springs, they will take a few times off road to setup. I had the same issue with mine, to the point people were telling me something is wrong. After about 5 trips the flex showed up.
