Am I wrong in thinking all I need to do is remove wheels, shocks, and compress coils to remove and then remove bump stops install spacer and then re install coil?

I have a compressor and air tools and if that doesn't work the 8lb sledge will be near by. Along with the 45-70

I couldnt help but notice two of the 3 vehicles you pictured are very popular in the media; one in Wayne's World (though I am sure the one pictured doesnt have the awesome licorice dispenser) and the aztec was in Breaking Bad. That being said, I never said that anything different is a good idea. I said that I liked that one because it is different.

that is basically it. I would also drop the track bars to get that extra axle drop, but watch for stretched out the e-brake cable and brake lines.


Once everything is installed and back on the ground loosen up the control arms, bounce the Jeep some, then tighten them up. Doing this will take any bind off of the bushings.

Media vs. public opinion and sales are two different things. They're all clown cars, including the jeep. Friggen hideous! Buy a truck if you need something with a bed, buy a regular jeep if you want to wheel, if you need both, buy one of many countless truck platforms that can be wheeled. That jeep is easily as nasty as those three vehicles above. Just cause it says "jeep" doesn't automatically make it cool... LOL

This is correct in how to do the install. Make sure you use a lot of pb blaster on all the nuts you will touch.

Agreed! When the aztek came out, there was a special edition that had an on-board deployable tent in the back. It was a great idea, but a terribly looking design, and an even more terrible drivetrain and engine package! They were front wheel drive, and just piles of crap. I worked at a pontiac dealership when they were in production, and many of them felt like they were on the verge of literally falling apart!

I'm guessing this is for a XJ? Shackles rear and spacers front. I never used a coil spring compressor just support the frame with jack stands, take off sway bar links, drop the axle all they way down, take off shocks, and jack up the opposite side of the axle you are pulling the coil spring from and they will fall out. You may have to use a pry bar to get them back in with the spacer in but its easy.
