most time consuming part was compressing the springs...

Does anyone know if the rear springs for the 4cyl vs the 6 cyl are different? My jeep seems to sag a lot in the rear.

I have an LJ, so its a bit heavier. Otherwise, I have the stock tire carrier, a hideden hitch, hardtop, rear seat, a small tool pouch, littel red compressor, and a socket set.

In the front I have a winch, but I have ACOS spacers, which give me just over an inch of spacer at their lowest setting. This is what they are at now.

If I put a person or too in the back, or hook up my camping trailer it just about flattens out and is always bottoming.

I'll get some pics later today.

Problem solved and thanks for the help. It was not in the retainer correctly and needed to be turned a couple inches. Funny thing is I sent a pic from the jeepforum to show how it should look and he thought they lost the retainer clips. Somehow he came up with some in 20min. Doesn't look like they will hold anything but doesn't hurt:

The difference is the spacers would bring it back up to the height it is at now. But I am not sure how much more above that height the 4" springs would put the front end, but to be honest the more I think about it, the more it sounds like the perfect solution...so yeah it's probably what I'm going to do...as soon as I save up a couple hundred extra bucks for trac bar/l.c. arms/springs/and 1" bumpstop extensions.

They have a Countdown To Christmas promotion going on this month.I sure hope the 2.5" kit shows up in that sale .The $299 for the kit is an awsome price but it would be even sweeter to score on for less in the sale.I check the site everyday at 1pm lol.

Glad you found the problem, easy fix eh !

No matter how smart you might feel that you are. Remember there once was a time your main goal was learning not to crap in your pants. True evolution is an awakening.

I plan on ordering my 2.5" kit some time next week. I am a amateur mechanic so I am not too knowledgeable about my jeep, I learned alot installing my aussie lockers on both ends. My friend has a spring compressor but is there any other tools or tips anyone can suggest? this will be easier then the aussie install? (it took me forever because the damn carriers wouldn't come out)

Also I dont know much or anything I should say about alignments or drive line angles. I read about people using adj. track bars/control arms/relocation bracets... how do I know I need any of this once my lift is installed.. I guess I am just worried about the unknown.

I appreciate any advice you guys can give me because I want to learn more about my jeep and feel comfortable tackling anything in the future I have planned for my build.

I am actually installing mine tomorrow, I've read through this forum over and over and I feel pretty confident that it will go well. The biggest unknown is stuff like rusted bolts and things like that, so use lots of PB Blaster ahead of time.

I'm interested in this lift, but still sitting on the fence after spending several hours reading 150+ pages of posts. Based on what I've read, I'm not overwhelming convinced on the quality or value of this lift. Results seem to be all over the board. Some installations are smooth and perfect, many are not...unlevel Jeeps, shifting axles, leaking shocks, bulging springs, to name the more prominent problems. The major plus and saving grace seems to be the price and customer service from Jeff, respectively. Somebody please say something to push me over the fence, one way or the other.
