IRO 4.5 inch lift?

http://www.ironrockoffroad.com/Merch...egory_Code=PFZ

Alright so in about a week ill will be purchasing a lift for my currently stock 5.2 TSi. I'm pretty much positive I'm going with the IRO 4.5 inch lift. But before I make my purchase I want to be sure I buy every component needed to make this lift functional so if anyone can tell me what other things I would need to buy separately that would be awesome. Thanks

You might as well get the premium lift if you're going to get the control arms as well. When I did mine, I got the 3.5" benchmark lift, all the control arms, and the adjustable rear trackbar along with it. I didn't want to go up to 4.5" of lift because that's pretty much the very upper limit of comfort for short arms. With my DT3000 shocks, the ride quality isn't too bad.

But if I went with the premium lift does it come with everything I need? Ill be driving it on road too so I wanna be sure I do it right and not turn my jeep into a sketchy death trap

And is it worth the extra $160 to substitute the heavy duty control arms with adjustable ones?

It's got everything but you might want to call and have them replace the rear HD trackbar with their adjustable one. I'd say get adjustable upper arms; the lowers should be okay. I only have adjustable upper in the rear and my pinion angles are good, front and rear. Don't pay extra for the Nitro shocks either. Get either the base Hydros or upgrade to the DT8000s; if you're feeling rather spendy, get the Blisteins. Get the Tenneco HD steering stabilizer from them, too. Other than that, it should be good.

Depending on your ZJ, you might need brake lines. I don't need them at my height with full flex but some people do.
