Probably not. I'll give you some ideas, but do a search as there are tons of write ups about this. In your build, plan on all new suspension, and don't go cheap. Chances are your spring bushings are rusted to your shackle bolts keeping things bound up. Ditch your track bar front and rear as they too get tight and even if they aren't, they do nothing but bind your suspension.
So.... New springs, RE Extreme, BDS, OME preferred, good shocks, Bilstien or Fox, new bushings and hardware, and follow the advice you'll get in your search about installation.

The good news is if you don't go cheap and follow the advice you'll find on this site, you'll have a good riding jeep that will go wherever you have the nerve to take it.

I do not think you need to do a coil conversion to get flex and articulation. It would give you a better ride but seems if you spent the money on a nice yj and then a coil conversion you probably could have bought a tj.

That was barely trying

Try removing the front and rear trac bars. That won't make it ride like a passenger car but it is much nicer. Might want to also check and make sure the the spring bushings and shackles are not seized and move freely.

What is your tire pressure at? This can make a huge difference. I have mine at 26psi and it rides pretty good now.
