I bought this yj for a decent price i believe....

I noticed I put this in the wrong forum a second ago. I bought this today for 3500. 1994 with a 2.5 with 160k on it. New fan and pulleys with new belt. New radiator and couple new hoses..nothing crazy just seeing if y'all think it was a good deal or not.

Yes. It means that your lea springs have sagged, and you can see it by looking at them. The add the bigger shackles to compensate for it. A new set of leafs would be a goo investment.

Those shackles are a cheap way of lifting. They do not have the structural integrity required, so we tend to suggest removing them before something happens. They also change driveline angles. Factory leafs were nearly flat, and those were put in place to allow clearance for the bigger tires.

I highly recommend removing them and replacing them with an appropriate 2.5" lift kit or 1" boomerang shackles.

All about that unibody life.

A well thought out 2.5" lift kit with bommerangs as suggested above will cost anywhere from $700-1,000 and take 4 hours to a weekend to install.

Now you've opened the can. LOL

Personally I'm an OME fan. Had a Rancho lift before, it was kind of rough. The OME 2.5" loft with 1" body lift is plenty to run 32's maybe even 33's. It's as plush a street as you'll find in a leaf spring and very flexible off road. All said and done I spent about $750 for my lift.
