Right-rear spring sag is common due to the way the engine's torque gets transmitted to that back corner over the years. You can either install a new replacment spring or a 1" spring spacer on top of it.

Look in any of the various Jeep catalogs like Quadratec, they sell them. Any 4x4 shop that caters to Jeeps should carry them as well.

When I had coils, I used a 3/4in spacer to cure the saggy butt. Cheap, easy, works just fine.

Got mine from an ebay store... "motomomentum" or something like that. They sell them in pairs as leveling kits.
