Hey I know i sound like a noob sry lol, but uh i have a wrangler tj with a 3" lift and 33" tires. i bought it from the owner just like that. How can i tell if it has a body lift or a suspension lift or both..?
I am a newbie....but i'll try and help, from the pics i've seen here so far 35's will be a tight fit under just a 4" body lift...might hit the wheel openings in the back of the body. Now with about another 1" of body lift and a little shackle lift on top of that it seems to work out...4" lift and 33's seem to be the most common combo. I am curious about the 6" lift kits I see for sale...why doesn't everyone just run a 6" kit instead of combining a 4" lift with body and shackle lifts? it's it only a cost factor? The 6" lifts look like they're allmost twice as much as the 4...but seems like it would be the best way to do it if you really wanted extra lift. I can't find any info about how high you can go without chaning other expensive parts...so not sure if you can even go with a 6" with stock driveshafts or steering links...so much to learn!
ok so i have a 98 xj classic and i want to start offroading with a 3.5 inch lift and still have nice road drivability here are my options, which is best ? and what size tire would you recommend ?
Rubicon Express 3.5" Super-Ride™ Suspension System with Leaf Springs $584.99
Rubicon Express 3.5" Super-Ride™ Suspension System with Add-a-Leaf $403.99
Rubicon Express 3.5" Super-Flex™ Suspension System with Leaf Springs $760.99
Rubicon Express 3.5" Super-Flex™ Suspension System with Add-a-Leafs $577.99
I would strongly recommend going with a Super Flex kit if you intend to do any off roading at all. The Super Ride arms are very stiff, stiffer than stock in fact, and I personally wouldn’t run them if I was doing any off roading at all.
I would also recommend going with a full rear leaf pack. Most of the XJ leaf packs I see anymore are sagging and should be replaced.
Here’s a link to the RE6030 3.5” Super Flex Kit w/ Rear Springs on our website (note the free shipping and discounted shock options):
Hope I ain't hijacking here.
I have a question, and this looks like the place to ask it. I bought a 81 CJ5 back in August to do a resto on. It has a rough country spring suspension on it. I can still see the numbers painted on the springs. 8007(front) 8008(rear). I tried to cross reference this at rough countrys site, and could not find it anywhere. Also, the shackles on this jeep are long. They measure 6.5 inches center to center on the main bolt holes. Add approx. another 2 inches for an overall length. So, I need help identifiying the lift of the rough country springs, and the shackle lift. I would like to go to a shorter shackle and still run 33's. Thanks for any help you can give me.
