soa lift

i bought an soa 5.5" lift with a drop pitman arm i understand that i my still have to look at some relocating brackets for the rest of the steering components and thats fine im trying to keep my cost as low as possibly. i also know a cv shaft is recommended but not a must if u have the right angles worse case i have to shim the rear perches no big deal.MY QUESTION IS CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT ANGLE I NEED TO HAVE TO KEEP VIBRATION FROM OCCURRING? Im only driving my rig to and from work and around the mountain roads some times i live fairly close to work.

From just the questions you ask I would say a SOA is not for you.
You will need a SYE and CV driveshaft
You will need to upgrade the rear axle unless you running 30" tires
You will need a High steer knuckle kit for the steering.
You will need a bunch of other things extended like brake lines.
So I say if you can send it back, do it....

So if keeping cost down is what you shot for, you got it wrong.
Get a regular 4 inch lift and enjoy the cost savings..

You chose the wrong lift.

There is no general answer to this question. Edit: The actual answer to this question is SYE.


You're going to be really tempted to try to make this thing work, and that will likely be a huge mistake.
Please read this thread: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/w...-cheap-480663/
Then hit that search field in the top left and type "cheap SOA" or "Bad SOA" and enjoy the horror stories.

Since money is an issue, then yup, you got the wrong thing. Either swap it out or buy a lot more stuff to make it right. Also, why do you need SOA for 'riding to work and a few mtn roads'?
