you don't ...and finding out is probably WAY more work than its worth.

Go buy a set of proven OME coils for $150.


'07 JK 2dr Sahara - auto w/ 4.10's and rear locker. 2" OME HD coil lift, BDS shocks, and 1" body-lift. 34" Hankook RT09 MT's on 16" AEV Bridgers. ARB diff covers, Warn bumpers, Warn 9K winch, a couple Hella lights ...and a WORTHLESS AirRaid CAI.

Just finished... super easy, other than the lugs there are 2 other bolts per corner which use the same socket and are very easy to reach. I'll post some pics tonight in the JK pic sticky, 33s look perf with the unlimited springs IMO. I may actually hold off on trimming the bumper/flares.

No I didn't.... I doubt it matters for the shocks or the sway bar links, and your ok with the lugs as long as you are careful not to over tighten them.

Make sure the lower shock mount bolts/nuts are tight. On my Rubi, the shock mount holes are slightly larger than the bolts. On the test drive after installing the lift I had a clunk on small bumps/crack. I then torqued all hardware to specs (like I should have to begin with) and the clunk was gone. The bolts had enough movement to make a nice clunking sound.
