Talking XJ Bastard leaf springs

I built some bastard packs today and what great fix and the price was right. I had $100 dollars invested total between the junkyard leafs $80 and new U-bolts $20. I used the 2 main leafs from a 4x4 S10 blazer and my main leafs and my overloads. I had 3" lift packs that are 3 years old and I over flexed @ twisted trails and flattened my leafs out the rest of the way. My cherokee was setting aprox. 2" low and now I'm back to normal and it rides better.

Cool. I made a em using my complete stock packs then I took the main leaf from a junk yard set and cut the eyes of each end and added it. Rides nice and added 1 1/2" or more .
