We appreciate the massive popularity of this kit but it isnt surprising considering the quality, design, engineering we've put into it.

We've taken the feedback that people have provided and modified the shock brackets to allow for more clearance around the shock eye and made the bracket more compact for easier access to the LCA mount bolt. These updates are now reflected in the updated instructions and the revised brackets have been shipping with the kits for a couple weeks now. We also made a small mod to the coil bucket to allow more clearance for the shocks. Thanks for all the input. The BEST swap kit is now even BETTER thanks to you.

Still aren't convinced that this is the best kit on the market and the easiest to setup? Don't ask our opinion, check out the reviews from our customers.

Crap, I wish I would have seen this earlier. I'm getting ready to order one this week, any chance of a 4th of July sale? What's the current turn around time for shipping the kit out?

Installing my tj 8.8 kit this weekend. I'm wondering why the brackets aren't designed to miss the breather fitting on the axle? I just went ahead and trimmed them to clear it, but it looks like it may have weakened the integrity of the track bar mount quit a bit.

Mainly because the truss goes over the top of the axle right where the fitting is.
