Another Vote for Rough Country. I installed a RC 4" lift on my 1992 YJ and i'm really happy with it. Can't beat the price either. And as far as quality i got a decent ride On and Off road.

I have the Fabtech 3.5" which is tall enough for 33's. Previous owner installed it but from my research it looks to be affordable and is very complete when it comes to parts. It has military wrapped springs and everything is holding up well after more than 5 years. Not really impressed with the ride quality though its very stiff.

Also if you can weld or have a buddy that can it would be cheaper then any spring lift you can buy.
As far as "wasting money on a spring under" I did not even see a Jeep in your profile.

Define "cheap"

SYE + driveshaft
high steer set up
properly setting pinion angle

Properly done a spring over lift would be most peoples choice, but it is far from "cheap".

OLD MAN EMU........ its better ehn RC anyhow





Hangin Loose.....almost broke my brake line...








only OME 2.5" sprins on a SUA, and stay SUA if ya can its easier and cheaper, SOA is nice, I like since I did it, but its not easy or cheap to do correctly...

OME 4" springs would be sick flex, and these things ride like clouds compared to stock...

this setup is 2.5" springs shackles and OME shocks.... the flex is best I hav seen from 2.5" springs, bear in mind I have cut my fenders flat, and a 3" BL, and 2." springs and it still stuffed a 33 tire, on level fround there is easily about a 7-8" gap from top of tire to top of fender.... I ****ing love them

I had to move my brake lines with only a 2.5 caus they flex so good....

Started with some rust repairs ended in a SOA...

Yea I do have a jeep and bet its built better than yours so don't worry about what I have to say because this isn't your thread.

Project jack my jeep

Me and a buddy did this lift yesterday. It took us about 7 hours. would have taken a lot less time if we had a cutting torch. we had to grind off 4 bolts. the rest took an impact rench and some cheeter bars. My jeep came from Ohio so ther was a lot of rust.
If you know anyone that has done a lift before it would be great to have them around. But if you take directions well the instructions that you get it the lift will get the job done.
I gree with what was said before, soke those bolts in BP blaster for a few days.
I have some progress pics i will post but when I get my super swampers on i will have my final progress pics.
GOOD LUCK!
