look 2 posts above. its all on baby

heres some pics. i dont have any good after pics because my camera is a POS. it turns off everytime i take a picture, before the pic ever saves onto the camera

also, i just ordered the rear trackbar bracket from RC, so i'll get that thrown on to re-center the axle once it arrives

the new parts


the old front parts


i dont know how anybody could POSSIBLY get the new springs on without a spring compressor... unless you're superman.


front done


front after


rear in


its back on the ground now, and im really happy with it. ill post some good 'after' pics once i figure out whats up with the camera

Good job with the lift install! With all the work I've done to my Jeep, I'm still not brave enough to mess with a suspension lift -yet. Too many variables to consider.

I'm just curious, is a 2.5" lift the magic number before changing over to a t-case lowering lit, dropped pitman arm, bumpstop extensions, slip yoke eliminator, etc???

i sure thought it was. im still confused about bump stops, but read here to learn up on them
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/bu...points-734737/

as for tcase drop, every jeep is different. some will need them, some wont. im trying to install mine now. you should be fine without all those other things though.

i bet getting those springs in were a pain in the ***, I remember putting mine in, believe it or not, I did it myself, and just man handled those springs in, real harsh on the back aha.

yes, those springs were a ***** to put in. ill take plenty of pics once i get a new camera (im actually leaving to get one in about 15 minutes). the old one was acting up, we took it back to the store to get it replace, ends up they dont sell that camera anymore because it sucks. we got our money back though

after the lift when on, i started noticing a nasty rubbing sound when steering all the way left or right. i figured out it was the steer stops, and they needed to be adjusted. found a write up, for i had no clue even where to look, and learned that it was a really easy thing to do. i got under there and threw 2 washers on either side. 15 minute job, and no more rubbing! woot!

Your wrangler is cool. Purple is a color that you dont see to often. Good luck with future mods.
