OME liftkit questions, what do I need?
This is my first post here, so take it easy on me :P
I bought my 2000 XJ about a month ago, and I'm thinking about having a lift kit installed, and the bushings replaced. When I had it inspected, the mechanic expressed concern about one of the sway bar bushings, which admittedly look a little rough. The leafs seem pretty beat, and I noticed the back sits lower than it should.
For the lift, I don't want to get crazy bc this Jeep is my DD. I'm looking to improve the suspension more than I am looking to raise the height. For this reason, I'm thinking about spending the money on an Old Man Emu kit. New leafs, coils, shocks, and the T-case kit.
I think i'm also going to replace the u bolts, they're pretty beat and rusted (upstate new york winter sucks)
I have a few questions, some of which may be silly.
for the OME kit, which do I want? (light, med, heavy?)
For bushings, should I go for Daystar polyurethane ones or simple rubber?
u bolts, I need 4 right? (that's what I saw under my Jeep...just want to be sure before I order too many/few)
Since I lack the tools/expertise to do this myself, I'm going to have it done professionally. Any ideas as to what it should cost?
Anything else i'm missing? Any suggestions/comments would be appreciated. Thank you!
