Rough Country Lift Questions

I have this lift kit for my yj. http://www.roughcountry.com/jeep_yj_4.html
It comes with some metal sleeves and i was just wondering where all of these went. I have four left over and i dont know where they could go. I put one in the bottom of every shock where the bolt goes in. Ive put one on the rear track bar. I think thats all ive used. Any ideas of where they go? Thanks!

If I'm thinking about the same sleeves they should go inside the spring bushings. They're meant as a buffer between the spring bolt and the bushings

Thanks so much! schaef98, do the sleeves go in where the spring meets the shackles or where the spring meets the frame mount?

(I'm not the one you asked but have the same lift) both the shackle to spring and spring to frame will require that sleeve. The idea is the you torque it down so much the the bushing rubs against the sleeve rather than screw to hanger or shackle.

In their absence you would tear through the bushing with the screw. Proper torque would damage the hanger and possibly the shackle too.

Why did my kit have so many sleeves? I have four left over when the instructions say i only need 2 for the sway bars. Oh and by the way, why dont the instructions say that i need sleeves in the springs, or do they even need them??

I do not believe that a screw should contact rubber in any part of your suspension or kit. They should be separated by those sleeves. This includes shocks, track bars, spring hangers, steering dampeners, shackles, body mounts and so on.

True. My RC lift had sleeves for every bolt--both ends of the springs, which are two different sizes, and frame mounts on both ends. For the springs you have to size them with the bolt for each end. If you have poly or rubber bushings with no metal sleeves in them, more than one thing will go wrong. Soon.
