I have a 95 zj and I just bought a 3 inch budget boost lift and 31s. My question is will I need longer control arms in back and what backspacing do I need for no rub without bumper trimming
Here we go again. You can get away with stock arms but it might give you driveline vibes without adjustable uppers. You need to extend your rear spring post so you dont drop a coil. If you have a cv front shaft you need to convert it a ujointed shaft and adjustable track bars would be a big help/good idea and at least 3.75 bs to not rub and even then it will be close.
Mine is still sitting in my spare bedroom amongst many other parts...
Yeh I figured if the pile of parts I have on my desk is going in I might as well do everything.

changed diff fluid in the rear. The nasty oil the PO had in there was casuing it to bind up. Also body matched the diff covers. The OE ones on the 9er where looking pretty bad. I still had my stock covers from the WJ so I painted them and threw them back on. Had some paint left over so I painted the fuse cover as well. Just a few small things to hold me over until I get all my parts gathered for the real build to start

Well I gathered up the gear oil I didn't use for the jeep diff fluid changes and was going to do the truck.. Yeah, there's no way to fill it up! There is aboslutely no fill hole anywhere I could find, not on top, not in the diff cover, not on the sides, nowhere.. So apparently I need to get a different diff cover so that I can do a simple fluid change on it... I'm so glad we don't have that kind of engineering idiocy on the jeeps!
