Installed OME HD springs & 5100 shocks on all four corners, Rancho SS, JKS adj. Trac-bar, and new coil isolators. Thanks to Kolak for all of these parts and GREAT customer service and information while trying to make up my mind. It rides GREAT...no issues with any of the parts not fitting right, as i've read in some threads here.
Before:

After:

After with 245/75/16 Duratracs:


I took measurements in the dark, so they were VERY rough, but the average was close to 3" all around. The Jeep seems to sit close to level at this point. Hopefully in for tires and alignment this weekend. Will post an update when everything settles in.

I noticed it too. I'm assuming its just the picture but its noticeably darker around the edges. Not my slice of pie so I'm not one to judge.

Today I took my WJ to work and realized I havent washed it in 2 months. It really... really... looks god awful. Going to the self serve bay tomorrow.

a broken stabilizer will NOT cause DW. A good one will only mask DW. You don't need a SS at all, so if you've got DW, something other than the SS is the cause, and that's caused your SS to die an early death.

I dont know how I dont have death wobble... I'm running worn out stock suspension, my rear A-arm has a good centimeter of play due to blown bushings, I dont have a rear sway bar, my steering stabilizer is completely shot, my shocks are shot, and one of my TREs is questionable. Suspension/steering overhaul next summer

My Jeep uses the gas your hybrid saves.

If you haven't dealt with it before, put it on the asphalt so there is good friction on the tires, have someone work your steering wheel back and forth while you are looking at your front end. See if anything is wiggling when it doesn't look like it should, TRE's, trackbar joints.

i see what you mean, i don't know why it looks like that. i can always go to a JY and pickup some cheap ones if i were to do it over.

the 1st one i did which was the driver's side, it started to drip when i applied the 1st coat of vht. but i just left it as is. i guess i might do one shade darker, we'll see.

everything is in tact like it should be really. Tie rod is tight, tre are tight, track bar control arms, drag link the whole nine yards

I understand. I dealt with death wobble for a year. Ended up being one tie rod end that went bad after replacing both on the tie rod. Didn't see it until I had someone work the steering on asphalt. There was not enough friction on my concrete driveway, but on the asphalt it torqued the components just enough.

You may need to get a lever under your wheels and check ball joints as well.
