YJ suspension

I have a 93 wrangler with a 4 in suspension lift that the previous owner put on it and 33's. A problem I encounter while wheeling is that there is little to no articulation with the suspension. My next upgrade will me quick disconect swaybar links which should help a little, does anyone else have some tips that will help me with this problem?

Pull off the sway bar and the track bars, they aren't needed on a leaf spring suspension. Then torque the shackles to around 45 ft/lbs (they don't need to be as tight as you may think).

Should help some. You may just have a cheaper set of springs that are stiff.

Once you get your swaybar/tracbar removed. Check you shock and brake line lengths. Also read up on bump stops. Use the search feature, there is alot of good info here on both
