Leave the shock boots off, they only serve to trap crap by the top of the shock and the piston.

Ended up ordering Isolator pads through KOLAK, for front and rear, and plan on double stacking the oridingal pads with the news ones for an extra .5-.75" of lift.

Those isolator pads are nice. Brian over here tossed the IRO ones in his ZJ when he did his lift. Came out nice

ok I am installing the lift right now, it says to drill a new hole in the axle for the track bar, but is that necessary if I bought the adjustable track bar??

My tailpipe is extremely close to my rear adjustable track bar, I was wondering if anybody has had this problem too? Sometimes it rattles on the track bar and actually, I see I have a couple options? Use the stock track bar with a bracket or use the adjustable I spent $130 on, and cut the tailpipe? And maybe relocate to the side?

What do y'all think?
