depends on the lift, the quality of the install and the fitness of the rest of your jeep.

I just put a set of axles with skyjacker lift already on them. My rig is a 76 CJ7 and as far as I can tell the axles are from a 78. Had a few other advantages like disk up front and 3.54's so I can get down the highway. The problem is it came with a sway bar and on my 76 there's no place to mount it. I suppose I need to weld a cross brace in but don't want it to interfere with the steering stabilizer mount I have to install also. Any suggestion or pics on how it's done.

Thanks Jim

Do it right the first time

Hello all, I drive a 4.0L, automatic, completely stock '04 TJ. I am a noob when it comes to suspensions. I use my TJ mostly on road but would like to take it off roading, say 2 times a month. I want to lift it about 4 inch, what would be a good suspension kit for me with a budget of $2000?

I currently have a 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 limited and looking for a jeep way to lift it. Is it smart to go with 3in spacers? Or should I replace the shocks when I do that? Please help

Higher leafs in the rear?

Asking for your opinion and expertise. So I will start out by saying that I am using my Jeep as an overlanding vehicle, so I will be loading that back with quite a bit weight with every trip I take. And in addition to that I will be putting in a small audio system, with extra storage space cabinets in the rear. Which, just off the top of my head, will be probably around 200lb. So I will be going with a 3.5" rubicon express lift. So I'm wondering if you guys would suggest putting on 4.5" rubicon express leaf springs in the back? Thanks!

Lift Kit and Chrysler Warranty

Recently purchased 2015 Unlimited Sport (first wrangler) and am novice on everything. I want to put a lift on it but am afraid if I go outside the dealership/Mopar parts and labor that this will void the manufacturer warranty. The lift is 2x what I can get from Les Schwabb and installed. I want to do 3" lift and 33" tires and no spacers. Please help.

Top tip, these posts are as relevant on my suspension re&re in 2015 as they were in 2003. All good stuff and I will add a sawzall for the busted bolts that were seized into the hiems of my rear lower control arms. Once a bolt is busted in there and frozen to the ball... cutting is the only way. Thanks for this thread all of you. Ratchet straps also saved my a$$ a couple of times.
