In need of SOA YJ knowledge!!!

So I am under the impression that any and all negative arch is bad for springs, is this true?

I recently went SOA with my YJ and I did a bastard pack spring job with stock springs and some unknown brand lift springs. It is completely disconnected and so far it doesnt seem bad at all, however after one quick drive in the sand a anti wrap bar is definitely necessary. So I am hoping to do that and a flat belly skid at the same time.

Also, I welcome any and all advice!

+1 for ruffstuff for the wrap bar. But remember, you'll need a new driveshaft if you do a flat belly skid.

Do you by chance remember how much it had to be lengthened? I think I would have to do a mml with the flat belly cause my driveshaft is at about 20 degrees already.

I don't know how much it has to be lengthened, I haven't done one. And yes to a motor mount lift, too. I also forgot, you will need at least a 1" body lift to tuck the tranny and t-case up in there enough to get it completely flat, maybe a 2".

I used a mega shorty SYE for max rear driveshaft length. I also bought custom made springs. The custom springs took many years of abuse before they needed to be replaced. The custom springs also came with an additional half wrap to help combat spring wrap.

I used the MORE rear anti wrap setup.

I should have went for the mega short sye but I didn't even know that it existed at the time I put my sye in lol.
