yes, the kit has everything you need.


lots of people to the F>R swap, so it has to be OK.

i wont promice you that it will sit level, but you can do sacers to level it out.

your current tires will look a little funnny, but not that bad.

so just moving the front springs to the rear you get 3.5" lift in the rear? do you think it would be like the front sitting a little lower or the rear? or could it go either way? and what about side to side? that would be level right?

Thanks a ton

yea dillon, the rear springs are about 3-3.5 inches shorter than the fronts. so by putting the longer springs in the rear you get lift.


as far as it being level side to side.... i would be supprised if the jeep wasnt level, to fix it, you could do a spacer, or get a fat chick to sit on the high to level it out.

Not quite. I'm sitting at about 3" lift in the rear, and that's with .75" spacers. I would also suggest getting either a relocating bracket (IRO can hook you up with one from Rough Country) or an adjustable rear track bar, in addition to the 3.5" kit. I've been driving on stock tires for almost a year now, yeah, you'll look a little funny

Is there advantage or disadvantage to using new front springs for the rear as opposed to the old front ones?

Should a guy leave the 2" BB in at the same time or would that be too much?

Either way you'd need to push the front wheels far forward and realign to avoid DW right?

I have the IRO 3.5 kit and I had to use 2.25 spacers in the rear to get a reasonable level look, because i used my i6 springs but I also didn't get 3.5" of lift, closer to 5" of lift for me.
