My zj in the works bb to 3.5"

Hey all just posting some updates.. Re bb+ upcountry springs rode like a tank...like most of us that wasnt enough so i decided to piece a lift for a few reasons. I went with RE 3.5 coils up front worked out to be 4" =108$ to my door. Because i have a i6 im going to use the upcountry fronts for the rear= Free
front and rear track bars 260$ to my door.. after doing alot of home work for shocks i called a friend at les schwab.. Gabriel foam cell shocks for 3-4" lift 45$ each with lifetime warranty= 180$ .. front yj brake lines 30$ autozone.. I have not put the rears in yet but i am very happy with how the front rides. going to remain on stock arms due to future long arm upgrade. So for around 600$ i feel i did ok? Nice riding shocks and track bars vs crap shocks and track bar brackets. Maybe i could of got a whole kit for that price but im happy. no more rubbing 31's... the wheels are mb72's 15X8 3.75 bs....here ya go

Thats the basics of the f> r swap. I would return those yj lines and get the 1994 .5 ton chevy pickup brake lines, they are longer then yjs, the only thing I hadnto do to get them to work is bevel the edge a little and no issues.

I'm running the dt 8000, the rear is a little stiff part of it could be the springs, but I have no complains.

Oh one more thing you will need. Extended bumpstops daystar makes 3.5" one which is what you will need.

Thanks for the input.. About the bump stops are they required? I don't think I have heard anyone talk about them here? I'll get them for sure if its a necessary part.. Thanks

Well myself and my neighbor needed them what you can do is hold off on them and checkto see if you need them once the lift is installed and max it out to see if your uptravel will be limited by the shock or bumpstop which it should be.
