i have a 90 yj laredo and after doing alot of browsing around here, i was wondering, the easiest looking(and cheapest) way to lift my yj would be to put the axels under the springs. but is it safe to do that? i really dont know a thing about lifts and things like that. and if i was to do that would the driveshaft in the rear have too much angle? i mean is it really that simple, just put the axel under instead of over the leafs?
The YJ section would be approprite. However a SOA (spring over axle) conversion is extremely common. Lots of vehicles come stock with a SOA setup, including XJ's. The problem with a YJ is the front is also a leaf spring suspension, and you would have steering interference with a SOA axle without some type of high steer setup, which is why (at least one reason) they came that way from the factory.
