The springs are extremely flexible and well built. On my CJ7 the advertised lift was more like 3.5" probably due to the AMC 401.

totally stopped my axel wrap problem
I bought these to control axle wrap with my 94 yj with spring over axle conversion with 8lug f250 rears with 40" tires. They really work great and I would recommend them to anyone, and the extra 1.5" of lift was perfect to stop my small tire rub,

Great spring, price is a draw back but after the sticker shock you'll love them. Getting another set for my new project.

exactly as stated
The title says w/ bushings, the description says w/out. They *do* come with bushings. Last owner of my Jeep used Rough country springs on this RE lift, the RC springs are shorter than these, so I have to notch out the aftermarket bumper a bit more for the extended shackle to swing back into.

New Life in my lift
The only complaint I have would be the paper labels all over the cheap black paint.
These went on without a hitch and actually moved my rear end about an inch further forward than the lift blocks had before. Because the centering pins are a little forward of center on the springs the angle is corrected to within tollerable limits and I have no vibration commonly associated with other springs and no degree shims were needed. I hadn't realized just how much my front springs had sagged prior to the installation of these rear leafs but that is an easy fix too.
The ride is only slightly stiffer than stock (which were totally wanked out (flat on driver side and S-shaped on passenger side)).

best for custom application
These springs gave me a measured 8 inches of lift. I had to take 2 leaves out to get 6.5 inches. The rear portion of the spring is way too long for stock applications. I had to hang the shackles off my rear bumper to make them be able to compress, even with booming shackles....

Fairly easy to install if you know how to use a jack and turn a wrench. Way more articulation over stock, smooth ride too. Not overly stiff, even in spring under configuration(by flipping the center bolt). This was helpful when working 'TOWARDS' SOA on my daily driver.
the picture shows the springs are military wrap. are they exactly like the picture and have the military wrap. thanks, Roger

Thanks for the inquiry Roger, the Rubicon Express Leaf Spring Standard Front/Rear 5-Leaf YJ 4.0" part # R/ERE1425 all YJ springs from RE are extreme duty.

I purchased these springs for 1992 Wrangler planning to use the bushings from the original springs. However, upon disassemble of the old I found that the bushing diameter from the originals are a smaller outside diameter than the eye in the R/ERE1430 springs.
I see that you offer a bushing set for 1 1/2" eye springs. Is that kit compatible with the R/ERE 1430 springs?

Thanks for the inquiry WlCruiser , part # Rubicon Express Leaf Spring Standard Front/Rear 5-Leaf YJ 2.5" part # R/ERE1430 what you need is part R/E1493 for 1 spring or R/ERE1492 for 4 leaf springs.
It says 5.5" lift but it requires shackles. So do you need the shackle required to equal to 5.5 or the springs itself are 5.5"?
Juls from Oakland,Ca on
The leaf spring itself is a 4.5" lift over the factory height. It requires the Rubicon Express Shackle Rear Boomerang Greaseable 6" XJ/Pair Part Number: R/ERE2705 to yield a 5.5" to 6" lift. Thank you.
