If it were easy to do than it wouldn't be all that interesting. And it really itsn't THAT hard to do just time consuming.

the 4wd has been in the back of my head. I have local upick with like 10 cherokees at any given time. But that's for later

I got the thunderbird springs and the spring isolator for it because these springs have a larger diameter. I have to drill a hole down the middle, as stated by other threads on this subject, to 2.1". How exactly do you do this, because I have hole saw, and on the rubber side, theres too much friction, and there's nothing to center the bit on the opposite side.

This is were it goes once i do the lift

im plasma cutting the holes tomorrow. Everything seems to be coming together. I plan to do the lift on Saturday. Hopefully it turns out well. I'm doing the sway bar pin eliminators, thanks for the suggestion. PB Blasted everything today. Hopefully the hardware cooperates. Seems like its in real good condition, and they soaked on wd40 for the past 2 weeks. I'll probably paint my calipers and my drums the same color when I have everything off

I'm lifting my MJ 3 inches on 98' cherokee suspension. You said above JK shoks will work, but the Monroe catalog shows these as the same length as stock MJ/XJ shocks? why change shocks if they are not any longer? I'm looking for 3" longer shocks for my 3" lift....

JK shocks, whether rubicon or base, are longer than xj stock shocks.
