Default Ranger SAS Question

What springs are you guys running? I've got a set of superflex bronco springs and they are stiff as fawk. Xj coils work well? Looking for ~6" lift springs. Or, what spring rate works well. I would much rather have too soft than too firm.

I used xj 6.5 super flex coils on mine. They dont fit the ranger upper buckets though so you have to modify them. Just got done with a ranger SAS.

The little tabs that go into the ranger coil don't fit into the xj coils. I beat them flat and welded a .25 thick circle on the bucket then a 4" piece of 2.5"od tube to go into coil.
