Black Diamond YJ 3.5" Suspension lift
Pros: price, spring features, comes with shocks
Cons: no pitman arm. a bit bouncy
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Just installed it last weekend. Too many words, not enough pictures in the instructions. Lifted the front 6 inches, the back 4 inches, but it's already settling down as expected. Good road feel, potholes still jarring. The glue on the shipping labels is outrageous.

A month later, it has settled down to about 3 1/2 inches all around. Ride has smoothed out considerably as a result. Probably comparable to stock or a bit stiffer without being uncomfortable. Bump stop extensions are longer than needed. We cut the front ones down to about 1 1/2 inch to take advantage of shock travel and spring movement without flattening or bending the spring backwards. Only took an inch off the rear because measurements indicated more would be bad. Rear shackles were hitting the bumper mount brackets, so I cut 1/2 inch off the brackets. The quarter military wrap on the second leaf in the rear is catching on the bolt in the bottom of the frame than used to hold the factory draw bar, now holds the bumper. Gives a nice "thump" when it releases and slaps the main leaf. Have extended shackles ordered to solve that problem.

Comments: Well the kit was very ceep once agin. It was a add a leaf kit. Was only suposed to give me about 2" but it gave me 3 1/2" in the front and an 1/8" short of 4" in the back. I'v had the kit on for about 3-4 months, and the lift has not settled any lower. With air tools, and proper torch will take about 3-4 hours.

Black Diamond YJ 3.5" Suspension lift
Pros: Great price and easy install
Cons: little bit on the stiff side
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great lift for the price, I think I payed $550 for it 3 years ago. Although, I didn't get an SYE right away and about a year after I installed it the driveshaft broke due the the vibrations.

Black Diamond YJ 3.5" Suspension lift
Price: $575.00
Pros: Reasonable price, decent quality
Cons: Springs are stiff, rough ride
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The install was a breeze and all parts fit properly. The instructions might not be user friendly for someone who doesnt already know which suspension parts are which as they have very few discriptive photos.

I didnt use the brake line relocation brackets i just bought longer brake lines instead.
Installing the new extended lines only added about 30min to the total install.

The ride is a bit rough now, im hoping it will soften up once i have driven it for a while.

My only complaint is that the kit didnt come with the drop pitman.


Over all im pleased with the kit and would recomend it
