4" lift + 1" spacer

I just bought a 4 lift today for my 94 ZJ. This is the list of components its 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 dont 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.

You prolly won't need the t-case lowering kit.

I don't like trackbar relocation. Adjustable track bars are really the way to go.

You want to avoid TC drops unless you really need them. You'll probably be okay. Melt down that trackbar relocation bracket and make a nice piece of bling out of it

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....)
