Anybody have any stock YJ leafs sitting around in decent shape? I'd like to use some for a trailer.

you do realize you can go buy trailer springs for 30 bucks

Yeah, I do. But I want something longer than the normal trailer spring to give it a better ride.

The trailer I'll be building is a teardrop that will get pulled down trails from time to time. I figure the longer YJ springs will give it a decent ride to keep it from bouncing. I'm also thinking about running a torsion axle, but from what I can tell I'd be looking at around $400. You can get them cheaper, but I want 3500 lb spindles with roughly a 2000 lb capacity, which is a "custom" axle.

YJ spring packs are too flat for what you are trying to do. I would look for CJ front springs, possibly with a 1.5 inch lift. The YJ springs are 2.5 inches wide, and standard trailer perches are 1.5 inches wide. CJ front springs are 2 inches wide, easier to work with, and have more arch right out of the box.
