lift options.

so im gonna be building my jeep up, and a couple guys here have been lifting jeeps for people, and they build thei rown kits. they are 6.5 inch. now what im wondering is, the setup they use is, longer shocks, coils, CA drop brackets, new front trac bar, and rear trac bar drop bracket.
now iv seen these in action and i must say... tons of flex, smooth ride, and everything seems to stay centered.

my question is, is there anything wrong with lifting a zj this way?


none of it is bought, its all fabed and put on by a local guy.

rear track bar brackets have been known to be junk, and not sure what the CA drop brackets looks like but generally drop brackets are no good. also you have to keep in mind, depending on what tire size you run your looking at regearing your axles and swapping out the dana 35.
