Default XJ leaf spring dimensions

Wondering if anyone has the detailed dimensions of an XJ leaf spring:

Total length:
Distance from Each Eye to the centering pin


Also, curious what the ride height in a SWB Jeep application is compared with other springs..

By this I mean if I use Xj springs instead of YJ springs, is the lift around the same?

Not positive as I am going from memory...
Pretty sure they are 52 1/2" long with 29 inches on the long side..

Not exactly sure on thoose dimmensions, but I know they are darn close.

Xj springs on my CJ vs stock CJ springs SOA they netted about an inch higher ride height... that was with with 5 leaf stock XJ springs but they are a quite a bit softer.

Like I said this is all going off of memory as I don't have the springs in front of me.

call a local spring shop, i've done it a few times myself, but can't think of the dimensions off the top of my head.
If you can wait a day or so i will be back home from school tomorrow and if i remember i can run out to my barn and take a measurement of stock XJ springs for you.
