quick question i purchased a 94 wrangler which has a 4" suspension lift, 2" shackle lift, and 4" body lift and it currently has 35in tires...whenever i go wheeling the tires do rub a bit during extreme flex...my question is can i drop it down to a 2" body lift and still have enough tire clearance for my 35's? i'm hoping the 2in drop will help with my jeep being a bit top heavy and i want to tighten up my steering a bit....thanks in advance for any input.
ten inches of lift??? or 8? I have 5 inches and 33s and am installing TJ flares which should be more than enough room for decent flex. I'd say go to TJ flares if you don't already have them, and you should be able to get rid of the body lift, or drop it down to 1 or 2.
Holy cow! A 4 inch body lift?? I thought my 2 inch was bad! But to answer the question, if your tires are hitting with the way it is now, then they will hit even worse when you lose the 2 inches. I agree with Toms87. Get you some TJ flares or some other type and cut away the extra fender. That would be the best way I would think and help you get rid of that 4 inch body lift!
The kind of trouble you'd be in with 4" body lift and 2" shackle lift if you ever actually did something where you *needed* 35" tires.... is staggering.
I was going to say you should drop the shackle lift and get some sensible shackles... but if its really a 4" body lift (i've never even SEEN that) then that should go first. If you want the height a SOA + 2.5" lift will flex soo much better, ride, better, and won't KILL YOU on the road or trail

i could be wrong...looking closer at it, it doesn't really seem like 4", i could be wrong...anyone want to help out? thanks for all the input
Yeah i'm trying to get the handling a little bit better on the roads...she's not TOO bad right now...she wanders a bit on the freeway, but i figure that's normal for a yj?
if i wanted to get rid of the body lift or switch shackles do i have to modify drivelines or do any other suspension work? i'm trying to keep this as cheap as possible i currently have a transfer case drop.
