4 inch lift kit questions

I want to get a 4 inch lift kit for my 07 jk rubicon unlimited. My question is, do I need to upgrade the electronic sway bar disconnect system and the steering stabilizer? Will the stock ones still work? Stupid questions but I just don't know. Thanks!

I have a 2011 JKUR with a 4'' lift & 35's. No need to replace them. Been running this way for 3 yrs now.

the lift should be VERY complete at 4". It will have longer links for the front sway no matter if it is a Rubi or not. SS shock only one is needed.

But at 4" plan on drive lines, they will not last long stock, off road they wont last at all. Most GOOD lifts will be taller than speced as well. Making the Dl issue more an issue.

If you use stock links to the sway on a 4 inch lift when the front goes to full drop or in flex it will go past paralell and flip down.

How about a 3 inch lift kit? Can all the other components remain stock?

AS far as swaybar link go, depending on the lift, the front is moved to the rear and you are given new ones for the front.
If you want to run 35's a 4'' lift is not needed put it's up to you. Being a 4 door the stock ds is still hit or miss but they seem to last longer then a 2dr will. Down here in Florida there is nothing but trails & mud , suger sand not much in the way of flexing so I've been good for 3 yrs now

above about 2.5" things get expensive to do it right. you can run 35s with 2.5" and a little trimming.

Get a reputable suspension kit, rough country, pro-comp, skyjacker etc they should have everything that your JK will need to be lifted.
