Default who makes a back half kit to run coilovers on a yj?

i want to put coilovers on the rear of my linked YJ. it already has coils but i would like more tuning on the suspension. i am currently stock tj coils and the jeep is pretty soft on the road. i would like to stiffen up the ride. here is a link that blue torch fab makes for a TJ. i was wondering if anyone knew a place that makes something like this for a YJ?

here is my jeep in its current state. it has a 5.9L EFI out of a dodge. any feed back is greatly appreciated

Do it yourself.

Here's what I did on my TJ. 1 piece of 2x3x0.125 for frame and a 2x4x0.25 for the rear bumper.

But I thought BTF did offer a YJ version. Or for less tunability, look for a set of XJ front springs. They are a bit stiffer than TJs.
