Zone 2" lift and 3/4 boomerang shackles

Hey everyone just did a zone lift this weekend. Hard part was the old bushings on the leaf springs. Man what a beast.

Did you take this picture in China?......rubber side up is not good advertisement....... those springs and shackles really give your jeep good gripping power.... sorry couldn't help myself

BTW I'm looking at the 4" springs and shackles so let us know how they ride

Not sure how your photos look on your computer, but on mine they are upside down. Try hitting F5 and reload your page....or maybe it's just my computer

Im running their 4" springs up front with 1" shackles. They ride alot smoother than my rc springs and flex great right out of the "box". Plus they gave my yj 2" more lift up front than my old sagged out rc springs.

No big deal, I can see the lift. I was just having a little fun.....and BTW Polosi is a NorCal lefty broad, I'm SoCal we don't drink together or talk to the San Fran crowd. That would be like me telling you to say hi to your buddies in NY!

I removed the trac bars so it might have helped. The ride is a lot better Than the flat springs I had on there.

Ya, I have my track bars off also. Did you get the zone kit or just the springs and shackles. I'm looking for a 4 or 4.5 inch lift, just not sure if I want to go a kit or piece it together. Are the wheels on your jeep stock? They look like the ones that came with the Renegade package.

I got the kit. Springs, shocks, bushings, u bolts. With the 10% off I added the steering stabilizer and came in at $485. I got the shackles off e bay. Also bought RE rear shock relocation brackets ( bolt on) for another $30. The wheels are not stock the PO changed a lot of stuff. Seats, auto trans,wheels,steering column. He did a good job not a hatchet job. Hard to tell if your not familiar with jeeps. I got the jeep for $1500 from a friend, it was his dads.
