Looks like a old Teraflex S4W kit. At the time it came out, it was one of the better short arm options for the WJ. Doesn't seem like a terrible price for the complete kit depending on what shape the shocks are in.

I'd try to grab the coils, a-arm spacer, and discos for about a $150. The control arms are a known weak link. The threaded arms can pull apart. Also, a HD adjustable track bar is a better option than the drop pitman arm and trac-bar drop bracket.

If that is in fact Teraflex, the coils and discos are $300 new alone.

Previous Jeeps: 84 CJ7 (A True Jeep), 2000 XJ (163,000 Miles/Totaled (Pictures of wrecked Jeep in gallery)), 2004 WJ (parting out die to major electrical issues)

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.
