Can't wait either, I definitely do not have enough room for those 33s the way it sits now. I haven't wheeled yet with those on, but judging by the pic at the docs, I only had a little left to go before hitting those fenders. That's with sway bars connected too. Didn't even bother seeing how bad it would be with those off..

Is 4" total lift going to mess up my steering a lot? It's so nice and tight now and I hope it won't change much with a drop pitman arm and higher center of gravity.

I think you should be just fine with the DP arm

and again One Fine Looking Jeep

They did. Came with a few other things as well, tcase drop kit, brake line relocation brackets, longer sway bar end links, pitman arm, bushings, etc..

I meant if my steering will change after the pitman arm install along with a 2" higher ride height.

Thanks Gage! I just really like how it handles with the current setup, no wandering what so ever, steering feels like a car if not better. Very controllable and fun to drive. The Rancho stabilizer helped a lot along with proper alignement.

You will be fine, my friend at work runs nothing but a dp arm with his 6 inch springs and it handles great!

Great to know, can't wait to install everything and go wheel. Been two months too long

If you're not in a hurry to get rid of those OME springs, and they are all 36r, I may be interested. I'm only a few hours north. Just gotta get the finances in order.

36r all 4.
I'm in no hurry at all. If you have any interest and would like me to hold them for you I'll be happy to do so. Just give me what I'm into them and they're yours. (got them at wholesale from 4 wheel parts with receipts, new bushings included) Would be nice to meet another Jeep enthusiast and maybe go wheeling when you come down. If you want we can even install at my place and go test them out

Guys, have a quick question..

My buddy Josh with the black SOA jeep has bad springs. They're flat up front and inverted in the rear. If I gave him my existing 1.5" superlift springs, will they work for his spring over? We're not looking to really lift it much higher as he's got plenty of room for 35s. Just trying to replace his worn out springs.

Since I'm installing the 4" lift this weekend, I don't really have any use for my 1.5" springs.

Should be fine. I've read a LOT of write ups on here of people using 1.5-2.5" lift springs in an SOA application.

Cheers
