Sounds like you're really piecing it together, any reason you aren't buying a full and complete kit? You should also be installing bump stops (shock length will determine the length), brake lines or brackets. Why are you mixing the front and rear shocks? If you don't need 5160s on one end you don't need them at all. And you should be installing either adjustable control arms or brackets up front.
You could run an adjustable track bar but an axle side bracket also raises the roll center and improves handling. As long as you don't buy a junk bracket that will break the factory mount off.
Next thing, why aren't you starting your own thread for this question?
This is intro lift. 33.5" toyo mt. I have been told to not replace control arms til you have to. The JK arms are fine until they get beat up, and have heard about rubbing issues with after market. I have good back space with my MT Classic IIs, but dont want to hit that til I have to. The aftermarket arms are expensive.
Rock Krawler describes the bracket with the kit as "bomb proof". Hope that means what I think it means. With the bumps, should I get extensions or new air bumps? What the difference. Intro like I said, but dont want any premature failure anywhere.
I have had this jeep 5 years and have progressively been replacing as needed or breaks. It's the mentality that you need to have a ****ty car before you can appreciate a nice one.
The reservoirs are because I am going with manual disconnects in the front but not doing any thing in the rear yet as far as that goes. The shocks won't be put through their paces as much in the back, yet will be better than stock, and I need new shocks with a lift. I plan on beating the piss out of this thing as it used to be my daily but no longer.
Total budget for shocks and lift I wanted to be roughly $2k installed. I have never bought a lift and wanted to start very basic (not puck basic... but basic). The reservoirs are the only splurge, and I think they look great, and will run cooler, extending life. Am I off here? Didnt want to start my own thread because I searched and there were already 9 million threads about 2.5" lifts. off center axles I hadnt come across to this point in research.
