What lift? ZJ or WJ? Kind of need some more info...

Be sure to crank down all the bolts nice and tight.

98 zj 4.0 3.5 lift new springs front front springs to rear

it tends to make snapping like noises when putting the truck in reverse maybe bc of preload on the suspension not really sure. my front springs make noise through light bumps off road they make a DOYING noise lol like if you drop a spring on the ground sort of noise

I'm not sure about the clicking noise but the "DOYING" is most likely because your front axle is to far over to the passenger side and the coil spring is rubbing against the track bar bracket. Try adjusting the track bar to get the axle centered under the Jeep better.

As for the clicking...did the kit come with a transfer case spacer? I have heard you need those to keep the driveshaft angles in check.

He shouldn't need one for 3.5" lift. I don't think the kit even comes with one (could be wrong though).

i have stock controls and my truck was aligned, also have no cv's but my unis are tight and the kit didnt come with a t-case drop and it doenst look like i need one but im gonna get one in the future when i order my control arms.


to the guy with adj controls what company how much and how do you like them, did you drive your lifted truck before you had the new control arms wondering if they make a notice able difference
