I just bought a 4” lift today for my 94 ZJ. This is the list of components it’s said to come with:
· Front and rear coil springs
· Front and rear adjustable lower control arms
· Rear adjustable upper control arms
· Front and rear track bar drop brackets
· Front extended length sway bar links
· Rear sway bar brackets
· 4 Rough Country 8000 Hydro Shocks
· All necessary hardware
· Installation instructions
One thing I noticed missing from the kit was a T-Case drop. The guy on the phone said I don’t need one but I think with 5” (see below) of lift I most definitely will.
I am also planning on adding a set of 1” polyurethane spacers. Do I need to also replace my bump stops for this (or buy bump stop spacers)? I have tried searching and reading but cannot find any definitive answer.
You can mess around without the tcase drop and see if you have vibes before you add it. Now, teh bumpstops should be as least as long as your new lift.

Yes the drop down brackets are crap, they will break and crack even on a street queen! JKS makes the best trackbars in my opinion..brackets ad extra force to the pre existing mount = cracked off old mount. If it breaks off completely while driving.. you are probably going to be out of control and off the road.. in a hurry. As for bumpstop extentions.. I am on a 4.5 lift and i have stock bumpstops. They really only need to be longer if you put on much bigger tires (an inch or 2 wont do to much) i am just going to put some hockey pucks in the front springs and that will solve that. and I dont believe you will need to drop your transfer case... just wait and see after you have the lift installed.
If you can get your hands on adj trackbars do it and sell the brackets to someone who doesn't know different. Depending on how much you are going to wheel you may also want to invest in some front swaybar disconnects as well. As for the t-case drop, with adjustable upper arms for the rear, you probably won't need it. I needed one at 4.5" but I am still running stock upper arms (for now....)
