Front springs?

The front springs on my 95 are shot ( I have bout 2in from the bump stop), I'm looking to replace them but all I can find in my area are SD springs Will these work, and will they throw my ttb way out of wack?

As as a related question, would having worn out shackle bushings be enough to throw the whole spring arch off? I figure its a stretch, but If a can save a $100 bucks its definitely worth looking into.

They will not work with your ttb. They are too long.

And worn bushings do no good for your geometry, but they won't make your spring sag more.
