Rusty's offroad lift

hey guys my WJ needs new tierod ends,balljoints,and shocks. so would it not be easier to upgrade to a lift instead of replacing everything and then replacing it again wth the lift kit stuff.
my question to you guys is will the rustys offroad 4.5 inch lift bolt right in?

heres a link to the kit itself
http://rustysoffroad.com/mm5/merchan...y_Code=wj_kits (sorry parents crappy comp wont let me hotlink)

so i just wanna make sure i can install this lift with basic hand tools and a few hours. and of course the help of my dad aswell.

Yep it's bolt on. Don't know about "a few hours" - nothing ever turns out to be easy or go smoothly. If your TRE's are shot, get new ones and a new HD tierod while you're at it.

I'm not sure how I feel about the drop pittman arm in the rusty's kit, and are they fixed control arms or adjustable? You might want to look at ironrockoffroad.com. You could get a front long arm setup for just a little more.

I also highly recommend IRO or Kolak/Kevinsoffroad...

The only non bolt on part about IRO's kit is you have to drill 8 holes...for the LA kit that is. But you will get way more flex and much better ride.

IRO would be better bang for your buck, Rusty's springs are said to sag over time, IRO has a lifetime warranty on it's springs
