New, some questions..

For starters, Im picking up my new to me YJ tomorrow. Its an 89 4.2 5spd. Im going to do a fews maint. things to it, but Im getting some 4 inch springs from a friend. I searched and I know I dont need the track bars, front or rear? and Im going to be ordering a drop pitman (is this needed?) new shocks and a t-case drop for now. Is there something Im missing? The kit would come with extended sway bar links, are those needed? Thanks, and I cant friggin wait to join the club!

I never even thought about brake lines! Thanks. I read everywhere that track bars are useless, but wasnt sure about the track bar and sway bars.

S.y.e.

When I bought my 1990 it already had a lift and they used spacers to drop transfercase. I removed the spacers and added a slip yoke eliminator. Made a difference with mine but not all lifts need it for some reason. I do have a dropped pitman arm but never had problems with brake lines, but mine is not a 4 inch lift.
