Lift Kit Education.

Hi guys - I am new to lifting anything and seemingly to a lot of suspension components. Anyone know of any videos where I can learn suspension components. I am soon to be lifting and XJ a little and see so many "kits" but there must me more than one way to "skin a cat" because they don't always look the same, some come with Shocks, some Springs, Some Leafs... thus my confusion. Thanks for any help Trying to learn how it all works so I can make an informed purchase in the future!

See lots of thread but so far (other than dead links) just more : This is the lift kit I used this is what I did ...
for Example - http://liftyourxj.com/
He got a 3″ kit that included:

Quote:
replacement front coil springs (JC30F)
replacement rear leaf spring packs (JC25RS)
replacement lower front axle control arms
track bar relocation bracket
Skyjacker Hydro shocks (H7016 front/H7018 rear; not shown)
Now see this Kit - http://www.jeep4x4center.com/rancho-...j84943kls.html
Seems to have a hell of a lot more parts.

What I am trying to learn is the difference in the two - like:
1) Whats optional on the kit from Rancho? compared tot he other.
2) What could I keep stock and what won't work.
3) In general how all these components work and what other options are there to achieve the individual goals.

I know I am asking a lot but only to be pointed to some material I know this kind of info comes with time.
Thanks

And this one on why you disconnect your sway bars (but I don't understand) -

(I had to "CODE" the links cause it was breaking things..)
