just double checking the info

so i settled for a 3" kit for now to keep the 33's from rubbing alot... i read in a previous post that i will possibly be needing lower control arms and longer brake lines in the front... what about the sway bar should i get some of them quick disconnects or should the stock deals work alright till i can get some money for them?

also should i get a new drop pitman arm? i do hear a knocking sound when i turn tho when i grease it up i dont... is that a sigh of my pitman arm going bad? im sure an XJ's will fit. yes? thanks for the help guys (and girls)

Which kit are you contemplating (that doesn't come with lower control arms or a swaybar fix)?
Jeep on!

With 33s, you're definitely going to want lower control arms to center the tire in the wheelwell. For the swaybar fix, I prefer the longer links because then you can get the disconnect ones and pop them for offroading. With 33s, you might also need to look into lengthening the bumpstops to keep the tire out of the fenders.
Jeep on!

control arms can be tricky because when you un hook the old ones the axle likes to roll back on you, but its easily doable and a ratchet strap comes in handy.

Do one arm at a time and be prepared to wrestle with the axle a bit. It's not all that hard, just tricky sometimes. Installing coil springs is harder in my opinion.
