Full Traction 3" Economy Kit

I got the 3" economy kit w/ the M-force mono tubes and it rides great. It soaks up large bumps alright, lots of quick bumps seem to happen too quickly for it to smoothly cycle fast enough causing a bit of a rough ride depending on the road you're on. Flexes GREAT off road when disconnected. The disconnects are a pain to use but get the job done until you can get JKS quicker disconnects or antirock/swayloc/etc. I netted about 3.75" of lift even after 4 months and 9000 miles.

Sent the wrong size bolts for the rear bumpstops and didnt allow for the zerk on the front trackbar. Overall, nice kit. Even more so when the cost is factored in. Price paid is including shocks. Stiffer than stock ride but not bad. M-Force Shocks.

Rides well. I have paired it with the Old Man Emu shocks. The ride is close to stock.

Great product, everything went on pretty easy. The directions really suck though. If you read the installs on the forums and websites, you shouldn't have many problems. I think I recieved 3.5-4" from this kit.

Here's a picture of my 3" economy lift and 33x12.50 Kumho kl71's

A great value - wish the instructions were a bit better but hey. Also would have paid more for an adj rear track bar to be included.

Very complete kit. Did not need to use the Transfer Case Drop with the LJ. When installing the front bumpstops make sure you drill spring perch, zip tie bump stop to the inner spring, install spring then secure the bumpstop with provided bolt. If not you will have a hard time getting the spring into place. Only other area that took some time was getting the front track bar adjusted. You can move the axle with the steering wheel to help get it positioned correctly.

Great kit overall. I netted nore than 3 inches of lift. Their discos suck though.

So far so good after almost a year. I only have mild offroad experience so I don't feel qualified to rate it for that. The street and highway feel is slightly smoother than stock on a '98 TJ. I hear bad things about their customer service but the price was so good I went for it. It seems to be a good economy kit at a low price.

This is the only lift kit I've ever installed, other than mix and match stuff with rubicon springs & spacers. This kit blows away the mix & match stuff. The flex is good. Had some rubbing issues so I added 1" body lift to clear my 33's. Now they tuck nicely under the flares. No sagging so far. I'll update if anything changes. I'd say a this is a good kit at a good price... but I did get a great deal when it was on sale

**EDIT 8/11/11***

After running this for a few years and several off road trips, I can say my stock front LCA's have had the crap beaten out of them. I've had to replace 3 times (2 driver, 1 passenger). I'd definitely add adjustable LCA's to this setup. I also replaced the sway bar discos with another brand quite awhile back because the kit's were junk. I had to replace the TRE on my adjustable Track bar too. The springs seem to be holding up, no sagging that I can see. I'd recommend to get something more robust if you plan to do much wheeling.

**EDIT 8/24/11***

Now I can be more blunt. Don't buy this kit if you plan to go 4 wheeling. You'll eventually end up replacing all the parts with better quality. I haven't done a TON of wheeling with this kit, but it was always on difficult terrain. I replaced the TRE on the Track bar awhile back & now I discovered the Bushing is shot. I already spent $35 on a Moog TRE, only to find out Full Traction sells a kit- replacement TRE & Bushing for $60. They will separate & sell the bushing alone for $35 (plus shipping). However, I won't be wasting my money because it will just fail again. I now need to look for a better quality adjustable Track bar. So basically all I will have left on my Jeep from this kit are the springs. I'm not upset I bought this kit, I didn't have the money for something more expensive at the time. But by the time I'm finished replacing parts, I will have easily spent more than if I bought a better kit from the start.
