cheap way to lift?

i talked to this guy a while back about lifting my cherokee. he told me that i could do it for cheap, by getting some front springs out of an F-150 or bronco and the rear leafs out of a dakota. and that it would give me 4 inches. now im not too sure if he was blowin smoke or giving me some good info. either way, if anyone knows exactly how to do this i would greatly appreciate the know how. thanks

F-150 and Bronco springs are stiff and will make your Cherokee ride like spit. Coil spring spacers are a much better method for lifting. If you lift more than 2 inches you will need more parts than just different springs.

just spend a bit more, and get a Rough Country lift. It is a good beginner lift, and still cheap. I think it runs about 550 bucks, and you know it was made for your rig. Maybe this isn't the info you want, but here it is.

Another thing, search for S-10 leaves- a lot of people are running those now.

would hate to see your expensive!! got my RE 3.5" sf for 100 more than that.. I say go spacers too if your on a tight budget, don't buy a lower end lift kit that you'll just end up replacing when the inchitis sets in

'98 xj: 3.5" RE, 31's, nates front bumper, etc etc...

'90 xj: Wrecked, waiting for the day it can become a full blown trail rig.

'00 wj SOLD (still in family)
