I just put a 1 1/4" shackle lift on my 92 yj which was fairly simple. The only thing you may have trouble with is lining up the shackles. I ended up using an old axle shaft to get them in place. Plus I found out the hard way that the gas tank has to be dropped down or moved forwards in order to get the bolts on the rear shackles. However you shouldn't have any othr problems-driveline, brakes etc. Other than that I haven't noticed much difference in the way it drives or handles. Plus every inch counts!
Hope this helps you.

I installed 2in shackles on the front of my 94yj which was very easy. The rear I had someone do for me cuz of the bolts. I later learned you should be able to remove the outside half of the bushing allowing you to pull them out at a angle.
does this change your steering geometry at all?does it need to be re-alligned after you put longer shackles on?i'm wanting to get rid of the cheesy stamped steel crap that comes on a stock jeep.just wanting 1 1/2 to 2 inch lift(for now)
who ever said putting a spool in a daily driver was a bad idea was just jealous he had not tried it first...

I'm running the greaseable ProComp 'boomerangs' front and rear. http://home.thezone.net/~95jeepyj They are a rear only application according to ProComp, but I flipped them to use as an anti-kickback (same as the M.O.R.E. boomerang shackles) and they are working well. Went with these as I saw several rigs, that had extended shackles, push the shackle up to the frame and bend/break lift springs. HTH
No officer, that wasn't an accident. I did that on purpose...
