Lift Kit Advice

So all i need for my lift kit is shocks and springs to finish it off. Im doing a 6 inch suspension. I have been looking into purchasing Teraflex VSS 5-6" shocks, teraflex front and rear 6" springs. Anyone try these? Any products that are a better choice. Running 37x12.5 tires.

You're going to have to do search for the answer to that one my friend. Some will say warry front 44 and 8.8 rear, some might say trussed 30 front with rcv's and a d44 rear. Others still will say tons.

What are you running for control arms? Trackbars? Steering and brakes?

You are going to put 6" springs in and change nothing other than shocks? Suggest you keep your money in your pocket for a few months and do a lot of reading.

You really need to do some research and figure out what your plans are for the jeep. You are probably talking about 8-10 grand to do what you want. Look at build threads on here focusing on what they had to do for the specific lift height. You'll be hard pressed to find anyone lifting 6" to run 37" tires. Your question to the forum leads me to believe you are not ready for this build yet. I'm just trying to keep you from getting in over you head. Find a build you like and pm the person.
