ZJ lifts...two threads merged

I have 93 ZJ that I want to lift 2-3". I would like to do the coils front and back as mine are sacked out. I think I have decided to go with the Bilstein shocks but I have no clue as to the coils. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Also, besides shocks and coils, what else do I NEED to do. Not really on a budget but I like to spend money wisely.

Thanks for all the help guys!!

Danno

No, I do not want pucks as the ride right now is horrible. I do want coils.

depending on how much lift you are actually going after, how you use your jeep and what size tires you want to run, the OME systems are very nice, if you want to stay mild or keep the daily drivability. I think their lifts are about 1.5" over factory or "sacked" coils.. it comes with shocks and springs, not too big, can fit 31" tires and has a nice ride from what i've read all over.

If you want bigger, go with the Iron rock offroad kit or even Rubicon express.

For 3 inches of lift everyone one who has rubicon express coils and bilsteins has been happy that I have talked to. Your also going to need trackbars.

Let me be the voice of reason for 2 seconds before this thread gets closed.

There is a lot to a 4-5 inch lift and no 4-5 lift is going to "ride great" Look into getting a 2"bb or ome springs. If this jeep is going to be your DD you really dont want a 4-5" lift on it Save your money for school.

But to address your question Iron Rock Offroad makes a 3.5" lift with everything you will need.

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4.0L I6
- OME Springs - 30"x9.5" Yokohamma's A/T-S -RE Shocks - JKS Quicker Disconnects - FM70 - E-Fan Conversion - 249->242 Swap -

1970 Jeepster Commando 225 V6
32"x11.5" BFG A/T
4" Lift
