    Does anyone know how much difference there will be between stock HD (10 leaf) springs and a 2.5" Skyjacker spring? My stock springs aren't in bad shape but they do ride a bit stiff. I've got experience with Skyjacker springs in both Jeeps and Scouts so I'm confident they will improve the ride. I'm not really after any substantial lift and definitely not interested in having to drop my transfer case or mess with the steering. Is there a significant difference in ride height between stock HD and a 2.5" lift?

    This is for a '74 Jeep CJ5 / 304

    Thanks, any input on Skyjacker vs. BDS? I've heard good things about BDS but have no personal experience.
