Don't replace the isolators unless they are in bad shape, the stock steering stabilizer is just fine. Use the savings there to upgrade to the double shear trackbar.
But replacing them, won't it give me an extra .75 inches?

yup, Brian did his lift and I said jeeze that's a tall 3.5 spring. Then 3 days later I asked him where he got his isolators, and noticed they're 3/4" think.

At this point my 97's 16 years old, while I'm in there I was planning on replacing mine.

Nope. You already have isolators on each corner, these are just stock replacements. You wouldn't stack them.(I do realize their site says you can).

If the ones on there are split or starting to crumble, then replace them.

You're going to get a bit more than 3.5" with this lift anyways, especially since you are getting the new rear coils.

Maybe I was wrong then, IRO defiantly under rates the springs then. To me it looks like a healthy 4" lift which is cool.

Well the jeep has 214,000 miles and still stock shocks and coils, I haven't checked out the pads to see if they are worn out or not, I guess I will check on that and see if buying the pads are worth it or not, I might just buy them anyways considering their age. But I will most likely get rid of the t-case drop and save my $40.

BUT HEY! anybody ever put those coil spacers on, along with the lift, I had a jeep that I put 2'' spacers on for a budget boost before, maybe stick on 1" spacers in the future? ya know since I already will have adjustable track bars?

or is that a bad idea? lol

At 3.5" the stock control arms will be fine.

sweet I'll message him thanks y'all for the help! I started stripping the jeep down today, took out the headliner to get repairs, along with ceiling center console, and visors, all being redone for only $100!

Took the front bumper on which I thought would be a pain in the *** to take off... it was actually insanely simple haha, it was all dinged up, faded, and scratched up, so I decided to just take it off, well instead of it being screwed on and held up with plastic clips, it was hung up with zip ties lol

Shipping: FedEx Ground: $57.67
Sales Tax: $0.00
Total: $797.62

**THIS IS WHAT I ORDERED EXACTLY, WITH EXACT PRICE AFTER SHIPPING**

I call IRO and talked to a rep, her name was kristin I believe? She recommended me doing the kit that included the track arm to save $20, but that kit would come with a track bar and a bracket mount, due to the bad reviews of the bracket, I decided to do the extra $20 and go with the foundation kit and buy adjustable track arms separately.

I will be posting a build thread on this as well. I'm lucky enough to be able to install this lift in my ol' mans mechanic shop, so I'll have spring compressors, car lift, and every tool imaginable

I will let everyone know how it goes and post some before and after pictures as well!

Thanks for everyone that helped out!
