Default Scout II Suspension

looking for me some suggestions:
I have a 77 SII, 196 1bbl, T-19, D20, D44 front and back. Basically a stock Scout. Looking for some suggestions re:

a spring lift 4", but with a "soft" ride. I am running 31's, and would like to make the ride a good street ride, but at the same time would be doing some off roading.

Rough Country?

Thanks in advance.

I'm running the Skyjacker 4" softrides and have no complaints other than the red polyurethane bushings they came with wearing out prematurely. I'd install the black Energy Suspension bushings unless you want to change them out in a couple of years. Might look kind of strange with that much lift and 31s.
1975 Scout II healthy 258, Wide T19 , 4:1 D300 3:54s,
1972 Real clean stock Scout II P/S, P/B, 345, T18, 3:73s
1969 Mach I. Balanced ported 351W, 650 double pumper, Super T10, Detroit locker with 4.11s. Lowered with racing springs, bars, Konis etc.
(Don't worry about getting arrested when I drive the Scouts).

You're 31s fit fine with no lift.

I did SOA with 1.5" body lift. And currently have 32s which are way too small.

4" spring under id go min 32s but likely 33's with a 1" body lift.
