Out back we located M.O.R.E. CJ spring hangers and new Eaton factory-replacement '73 J-2000 springs under the frame. This helps in three ways: It gives the axle more leverage on the spring for more flex, it provides more lift than typical outboard-mounted spring brackets, and it places the springs closer together making more room for the tires and wheels. The trade-off is that a vehicle set up like this will sway more than one with outboard-mounted leaf springs.
