Hey Wazz, I looked too and couldn't find anything on cable replacement. Consider it an oportunity. It is a strait forward thing to do. Consider it a chance to contribute with a write up of your own!

That is mud on the Jeep. right?
Why would you even consider working on the Jeep with it like that?
I can imagine what the underside is like. Have fun getting mud on you while working

I just did a BDS lift about 2 months ago now. I did 2 inch springs and 1 inch(really really beefy) BDS shackles. Took about a month to start breaking the springs in and they are starting to ride nice now. With that three inch total I actually netted a little over 4 inches of lift over stock. I went BDS for the lifetime warranty and thier reputation. I also do not want to risk swapping out springs every year or so because of sagging. Next is SYE then 1 inch body lift. I gotta hand it to BDS so far it has been one top notch lift. Not a single complaint from me.

Two months ago, I had a 2.5 inch rough country lift installed on my 89. It was all I had the money for, and I didn't want to have to do sye, t case drop, breaklines or anything else like that. First off all, its not as bad of a lift as everyone says. Ya its a jeep, so its never going to ride very smooth, especially a yj, but even after the lift, the ride quality isn't that bad and It has a decent flex for light to moderate offroading. The bad thing, it lifted it more than 2.5 inches. I had to wind up getting new breaklines, t case srop, and at first the driveline angle was so bad that it binded up to the point where it wouldn't even move. I believe that the guy at the shop also said he had to install a wedge? Anyone have any idea what this would be, or was I just hearing things?

I think the wedge is for the axles perches to tilt the axle itself upwards towards the t-case, reducing the angle. If that makes sense.

This is correct. The shim should come with the RC lift kit.
