New to jeep building, advice needed

Bought an 89 yj 2.5 with 75000 original miles a few months ago. Only problem is, the steering seems loose when driving down the road. Any suggestions?
Also, I was thinking about buying a 4 inch suspension. Is it better to buy one or piece it together with springs from the junk yard?

Welcome to JF!

It would be a big help to our online diagnostic team if you were to fill out your forums profile for your jeep. It just gives us a reference point from which to start. If you are unsure what you actually have, post up pics of the axles, engine bay, and all around the Jeep and post them in this forum: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/n...ofile-1512909/ Someone will contact you in those forums to help filling out your profile.

As for the 4 inches of lift and such, there's a sort of a lot of opinions and ways to figure out what you really need vs. what you may think you want. Try searching the YJ forums for LIFT threads and read up on them.
