new to the community here and need lift advice..

hey everyone im super duper excited to be apart of this community and looking to share my future excperiences here with you all..

i recently gave up my leave and decided to purchase a 2005 wrangler unlimited that had 130xxx on her and fell in love with it after i test drove it. mind you i was in a new 2014 c350 coupe before, and there was something a little special about this jeep. i went ahead and got it..

shortly after i noticed she started shaking between 60-65 anything less, anything more, the shaking goes away.. so i took it to sts (its a franchise shop) had an alignment done and the problem still consisted. went back to tell them the alignment didnt change anything really only to get back that 3 of my shocks are blown and i might need tire balancing, which i get the car isnt exactly brand new im just giving a briefing on prior history.. now that thats out of the way (still need to get it taken care of) i figured i would get an entire suspension kit and get it over with and here is what im looking for and would love to hear peoples opinion


i am a complete NOOOOOOB so please forgive my ignorance

my ride is honda civic harsh right now and i would like a solid ride thats going to last me a LONG time. i do not off road or rock crawl but might get into it later on. id like a kit that is super has a super smooth ride quality and absorbs harsh roads like nothing, when im on a dirt road id like to glide over these bumps. here is what im considering pulling the trigger on. please help

savvy/currie short arm 3 "
fox shocks

i dont know anything about extended brake lines drive shafts axles etc. etc.

again any info would help and again please excuse my lack of knolage im still really new to this whole thing, ill be surprised if i figure out how to post this thread lol

thanks fellas

Welcome to JF. Speed related shaking is usually tire balance problems.

Read and research before buying a lift kit, and decide on what your ultimate goal for what you want. Another suggestion I would make is go to http://www.jeep.com/webselfservice/j...ull&category=U supply your jeep info and ask for a build sheet. It will give all sorts of info on how you jeep was built.
They're are a few good manufacturers of these kits, OME, Clayton, Metalcloak, Savvy/Curry.

That is a good choice for a kit that should ride very well. I bet if you call Savvy they will make sure you get everything you need without BSing you.

You don't have to drop that much money to lift your jeep 3 inches. The lift is only part of building you jeep. There are many options. You can do a 2" susp and 1 inch body lift, a locker, a winch, run the same size tires, re-gear and it will get you further down the trail than a high dollar lift.


I believe all the LJs came with Dana 44 in the rear. If that is true you are one step in front of many who are building their jeeps.
