If you are looking for a decent but not too pricey lift kit, I suggest you check out Rubicon Express's 3.5'' Super-Flex short arm lift kit. It comes with everything you need for the 3.5'' lift and it is a very flexible lift. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Found this off a site may do this any opinions?
using ford thunderbird front springs to lift the front of my ZJ around 3.5"
*here isI found out about
*and here is some info I found on the springs:
*Front coil springs from a 3.8 V6 equipped Ford Thunderbird/Cougar offer 3-4in of lift and the softer ones noted below ride and flex like stock XJ coils.
*83-88 TBird, Cougar = more lift
89-97 TBird, Cougar = less lift

It is man, just buy some front coils, put your oem fronts in the rear, buy front and rear track bars and maybe a few other things as needed, then call it good

He's going to need about $400-$500 more in parts to run that kit.
