Go to jeepinbyal
lifts from 675 ( Ironman ) to 750 ( OME) up to 3-4000 for a very good riding coilover kit
AllJs ( boulderbars.com) also has the Frankenlift
keep it under 3 inches of lift and stock UCAs will do you for a while, go over that and you'll need JBAs aftermarket UCAs
Also stay with 245-75-16 tires or smaller
Those above are the only two places worth mentioning, don't go straying off on other sites, or looking at spacer lifts or any of that crap, after years on these sites theres no where else to go for lifts

You are using some terms I done quite understand..,
UCA?
JBA?
Can I put springs and shocks from a JKUR in my 2002 liberty? If so, would I need to modify anything?

UCA= Upper control arms
JBA= jeepinbyal.com
No you can not install shocks and springs from a JK on yours, completely different suspension system . JKs have solid front axles, KJs have Independent front suspensions, JKs have a full frame, KJs do not have a frame and the list goes on and on

Come on over , we're installing a lift this afternoon for a guy from Pa. Driving 5 hours just to have it done here

Thanks for the info.

looking at the "KJ IRONMAN 1.5" SPRING LIFT KIT"

How do your shocks compare to using Bilstein?


Thanks,

Thanks,
Ironman shocks are actually a little bit longer than OME and bilstein for the front . If you look on the JeepinByAl website you'll find a picture and description of the OME, Bilstein and Ironman .
Ride on the road is very good with any of them

All depends on if you are doing upper control arms, etc
What do you have in mind of doing ?

I have just purchased a 3" coil spacer lift for my liberty. The back went on no problem and got the spacers on the front struts however they are now too long for the bottom strut fork to bolt into the lower control arm. Anyone have any suggestions? I tried compressing the coils but still can not get the room.

I am also trying to lift my 2002 liberty limited. Every lift I have found says will not fit 02 models 03-05 only. Which lift will actually work for under $500?

NONE under 500-more in the 775-800 range

Okay. So which one do you believe would be the best for price/quality ratio? I seen the frankenlift or the ironman lift would work. It's just that I found a ton of lifts all over for like 150-300. I didn't know if those would actually work for the 2002 model because they said they would on the site but when I actually call them or ask around I'm told they will not.

I have also read that this one will work. I don't want to have to swap out a bunch of crap, and I'm not sure if I'd have to with this lift. http://bds-suspension.com/product?ma...1&yr=2002-2007
