I have a 01 XJ Sport with a saggy 3 inch suspension lift. I was thinking of doing either the 3.5" RE coils and leafs and shackle the rear to my liking, but now I've started thinking about going up to a 4.5" RE coils and leafs. If I make that jump what all will I have to do? T case drop? Extended away bar attachments? Anything else? I can save $100 if I move up to 4.5"

Also my tires are rubbing my control arms when I'm at about 7/9 turn, is there a way to fix that without getting wheel spacers?

Sye, extended sway bar links, front and rear pinion rotate, mainly the rear. Adjustable uca and lca. Steering geometry drag link vs track bar. Adjustable track bar. Proper wheel spacing so you don't rub.
None of this has to be done. But probably will be done cause it will drive like crap if you don't.

Would I be fine with extended sway bar links, sye, t case drop. I'll probably add washers so that I won't rub anymore. Do I need new control arms?

SYE or a t case drop. One or the other. Start with the t case drop. If you get driveline vibes you'll have to do a SYE.

Where are you adding washers? Hopefully not to widen the wheelbase.

Control arms might not be needed. You'll have to lift it and drive it to see.

Heres the thing if you put adjustable UCAs and LCAs when you do the lift its much easier than going backwards and putting them on after you've tested the driveablilty.
At 4.5 inches you could very well experience front driveline vibes. Thats where you'll need the Adjustable UCAs for front pinion angle. And the LCAs will help push the back forward because as you lift the front axle pulls back.

you will most definitely need a adjustable track bar your stock one will never cut it.

What size tire you plan on stuffin? Is all this necessary?
If you don't do it right the first time it will be a headache.

right now i just have 31s but once money allows, I want to move up to at least 33s. Adding washers on the steering stops will cause it to stop earlier so i wont rub

1. What makes you think it's saggy?
2. Why do you need to go higher?
3. You can easily adjust your steering stops with washers. Google XJ steering stop adjustment and a ton of guides should come up.

My leafs are nearly flat

I was gonna just revamp my current set up but I could save $100 on my coils if I went another 1.5" but that's not gonna make a software due to extra expense so I'm gonna do what I originally planned. Renew my 3"
RE 3.5" coils and leafs. Then some pro comp steelies (band wagon) detours bumper brow and 2 KC appolo pros
