Lift & Tire Help/opinions
OK just starting the my cheap lift on the Comanche Devil. Put in the T-Bird springs upfront. Netted 4" lift, today I made sway bar disco's from 2000 Grand links , this weekend I will be lifting the rear, so here is the Question. Do I re-arch the spring pack to achieve the 4" needed or make up longer shackles, or do the both? And about how much arch to net 4"? I know for a 3" lift the springs need a 5" arcs for a 4" would you go 7" or 8"arc? Don't want to do a soa because i will get 4.5-5" and thats too much. Now for tires do I go with 31" or 32"? I want some opinion I know there are only a 1" but what is the pros/cons. Need some experience opinions.

I'd go with the 7" arc and 32's. 31's would look pretty small with a 4" lift. Did you get a dropped pitman or anything similar to correct your steering?

you could do what i did and do the soa with a cherokee shackle, cherokee shackles are about an inch shorter than mj shackles and will lower you about a half inch. however it is still pretty high in the back
