New lift kit for 94 liberty

So after much debating and saving, I've decided to go ahead and buy the Frankenlift II Premium Kit. I was wondering from any fellow jeepers, is there anything I should know prior to lifting it? It will be coming in a couple days and I'd like to have it lifted within the week.

A good tip for prep would be to start spraying everything with pb blaster

I've got pretty much the same kit on the way. Except instead of the frankenlift I got the $750 OME spring and strut kit, and bought the 1/4" top plate, rear isolators, teraflex bump stops, and hockey pucks seperately. After shipping I think i'm around 1000 bucks, where the frankenlift is like 100 bucks more, dunno the shipping tho. Probably another 70 bucks if the shipping on mine is any judge. But the Frankenlift comes with pre assembled front struts... which I'm not totally clear on.
Anyone able to explain the assembly of a front strut for me?

lift was installed today, and i LOVE it, the only thing ill say is since my springs were sagged, the lift wound up being a 4 inch lift, (awesome) but the stock tired make it look a little retarded. (pics to show in a bit, I'm at work and will upload when i have a chance)

The only bonus with the Frankenlift is that the front shock/coil spring assembly is pre-assembled by All J.
You can get just as much lift from adding all the known little tricks.

But congratulations on your purchase, you will like it!

is it just me or is your back end lower than your front? if that is the case, would he need to let it settle a bit before taking measures, such as rear isolators? or what

You need at least one extra rear coil spring isolator.

Agree with socks
need one more iso per side in the rear to level it out
plus if its not aligned yet that will bring the front down some as well
