Rough Country 4in lift

hey guys,

anybody running the rough country 4in lift on their cj? I just acquired an '82 cj7 that's running bald 33's with an old shackle lift, and rides like crap. Anything out there that's cheaper than rough country, but comes with shocks?

I'd be doing this myself, so any install advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, I bought one of these kits on ebay and added a new steering stabalizer with the matching boot. The whole thing was under $500 shipped to my front door. The kit went on really easily and everything fit perfect. I havent driven the Jeep yet because It is still being restored but I would buy the kit again with the results I had putting it on. The only problem I had was installing the transfer case drop kit because my bolts in the frame were stripped. Changing the pitman arm was a bear also but with a pitman arm puller and an impact gun you will be fine. I did the front back in about 10 hours.

They all go on the same way...the differences are in the ride quality & flex. No experience with those springs, so I can't comment any further than that.

I've had the kit your talking about on a different jeep. It rode pretty well but I only got like 3" out of it.
91 YJ rebuild! Rush to get it driving/wheeling.
