Jeep tj (longer sway bar links for 4" lift?)

Do I need longer sway bar link if I'm putting 4 inch pro comp coil spacers?

I do believe so. After this weekend I will have the ones off of my 4" pro comp lift if you are interested. I also made some quick disconnects for them. I'm installing an Anti-rock.

you will need longer links.
zone has solid extended links at a decent price.
for nice disconnects, look at jks "quicker disconnects".

I think you mean springs. Nobody makes 4" spacers.

Will I need to do anything else to it or buy anything else? Or will I be okay with the extended links and the springs?

Is it the lift kit or just the springs?

-Shocks
-Sway bar links
-Track bars will need attention to center axles
-T-case drop or SYE, driveshaft, and adj arms
-Longer front brake hoses if disco'ing sway bar

Unfortunately there's more to just lifting a jeep. Make sure to look around the forum a bit to get an idea of what you'll need and don't hesitate to ask more questions like you have.

No.

1. You need shocks. There is only about 4" of downtravel with stock shocks. Add 4" of lift, your downtravel will now be 0".
2. You need to drop the transfer case. And hopefully you can get rid of the drivetrain vibrations with just the t-case drop. If not, you'll tear up u-joints, ruin pinion seals, and maybe even trash a few pinion bearings.
3. You'll need sway bar links. Stock are too short. Leaving them disconnected will make your Jeep drive like crap. The body will feel like its floating and it will feel like you're not in control.

That is the absolute minimum you need to address.

I would not want to run 4" springs with stock arms. But that's JMHO...
