Anyone want to trade- My 4-4.5 in. lift for your 2.5-3 inch lift (front end, XJ)

If anyone has a 2.5-3 inch lift in the front end, but may want a 4-4.5 inch lift, for Cherokee or really any of our rigs with coils. I am looking to downsize my front end. Skyjacker coils and 1 inch spacer are in my rig now but would really love for it to be a tad under 3 inches. (I am kind of a perfectionist) I would be willing to free trade and do a swap day, I do not have a garage though. I also have an AAL I can toss towards this swap. Send me a message if this interests anyone.

Also, if anyone knows how to work on brakes, I will pay cash for them to be inspected/ I think my MC is going out.

Thanks!

Too bad I already have Death Wobble at 3" or I might have traded you. But then again mine is a budget boost on top of upcountry, so not a true 3". Also mine being a V8 would probably put you right where you are now for height anyway and make it ride like a tank.


What makes you think your master cylinder is going out? What are the symptoms?

Get an alignment and tires balanced, that fixed it all for me! I'd still swap if you get it fixed.

Brake depresses on inclines to where I slide forward and need to re-pump. No loss of fluid through anything though.

Yeah, that sounds like either the mc or the abs pump have a failed internal seal.

And my DW stems from just about every suspension and steering bushing being completely shot. Guess that's what happens when a well used ZJ sits for 3 years, huh?

If anyone with a v8 Grand cherokee wants ~3 inches of lift, I'd trade coils for coils too?

a new pair of coils are $100 why not just spend the $100 on new coils

Just got back from Japan, buying tickets to Thailand for October, Vancouver for X-mas, Europe next April hopefully...

My yearning for travelling doesn't stay on 4 wheels always. And both are expensive hobbies with student loans as the balancing act- this is not complaining btw!

so you are at 4-4.5" and want 3". You have a 1" spacer tho. why not take it out and be at the 3-3.5" mark, and see how you like that?

I only have a 1 in. spacer, I ditched the 5/8 stock isolator.
