If the front axle is already set up for SOA you will need to SOA or lift your rear to match. You'll also need new shocks, brake lines, SYE, and steering. Consider also adding a leaf to your springs to prevent them from getting ruined. Really depends on how much you get from the donor Jeep. SOA conversions are not cheap.

If I were you I would read some posts here before asking something like that.

This has been covered way too many times for anyone to try and explain it to you.

I suggest searching for "SOA" in the technical forums. This should yield plenty of useful information.

you will need to SOA your rear axle and depending on what is done to the front axle steering might need to be dealt with it depends on how they did it. Will need a SYE and CV rear driveshaft. Shocks will be needed.
