    What else will I need for a 2.5" lift?

    Hi all, I recently purchased a 2.5" Quadratec lift with the fox shocks and am planning to install it soon. I am aware that I will probably need an SYE and a CV rear driveshaft, but I am unsure of anything else I may need such as extended brake lines or new control arms. I currently have a 2"...

    '03 Wrangler Front End Re-Build Questions

    Hey Guys, I recently bought an '03 Wrangler SE. I've already tackled a handful of things that need attention (calipers, pads, rotors) but most important is Death Wobble (confirmed, definitely Death Wobble). I've dug around a bit here and already found a litany of information, much appreciated...

    Are these shocks going to be too long?

    I’m looking at the Rough Country 2.5” suspension coils and wanted to confirm they will also level. So the rep I spoke with said, yes, it levels the vehicle with a 1” rear and 2.5” front lift. Great. I want to add different shocks, so am going with a set of 4 Rancho RS5000 hydros which state...

    Do I really need a lift?

    Somewhat recently I acquired a set of metric equivalent 30×9's for my stock 03, and they rock but I want to go bigger, 32 or 33×10's. The kicker is, I very much dislike lifts as they make vehicles look like RC cars, and I'm not gonna daily an RC car, no offense... I've read in other threads one...

    Lift questions (please help me make up my mind)

    So I’m looking to lift my 2000 Sahara only looking for 2.5-3 of lift for my 32s. The most wheeling this Jeep will see is some light mountain trails that’s it.

    Questions about lifting and getting SYE and driveshaft

    I'm looking at getting the Zone 4.25" Combo lift for more clearance for my 33s, and the kit comes with a motor mount lift to avoid a transfer case drop. My question is, will I have problems/vibrations with the stock driveshaft while I save for an SYE and new driveshaft? Or should get everything...

    Educate me on shocks

    Currently I have a 2” OME lift, and if I wanted to get 3” springs, the shocks would over extend, right? I also have a 1.25” body lift so I don’t want to go any higher with that. If I can’t use the OME shocks with taller springs, what’s a good combo of springs and shocks for a 3 or 3.5” lift?

    Dilemma with Suspension Lift

    I've had my mind set for months now that I was going to get the Currie 4" Short Arm lift for my 1999 Jeep TJ Sahara. I already got and installed a 1.25 Savvy Body Lift and 1" MML. However, the guy I had do a custom roof rack (not on in the pictures) for my Jeep is a vendor for Metalcloak and...

    Necessary Suspension Component Upgrades for Lift Kits

    I have a 2002 Jeep Wrangler Sport and installed a 2" Pro Comp suspension lift kit. The lift came with no additional control arms or suspensions components of that sort to accommodate the lift. I did not think that those parts would be necessary considering it is only a 2" lift, however, I have...

    Keeping the same shocks when lifting?

    This is probably a stupid question, but I am learning everyday with my jeep... I installed a set of Bilstein 5100s to replace my stock height ride a few months ago and I have no complaints so far. I have some spare quarantine time these days and I would really like to lift the jeep. The shocks I...

    Old Man Emu “A” and “B” Springs

    I recently put OME springs on my 2005 TJ and completed the 2” lift and got it aligned. I stumbled on a discussion on A and B side for the OME springs - of course after all done. No instructions in the box so I just did the swap. I crawled under and found the stickers and sure enough very small...
