I dont know if this is where I would post this but here it goes.

I am pretty set on getting some coilovers and getting suspension lift kit that is two and half lift

I have been told when having coilovers long arms are preferred for maximum flex. Is it needed? Also when I look for two and half inch lift suspension kits they do not
have long arms.
Is this something I need to buy separately as a whole? So I could have long arms?

Can someone point me to a dependable two and a half inch suspension kit ? i have looked at metalcloak, teraflex . I am looking for something that would support coilovers?

Thank you I am pretty new to this

coil over to well is a going to be 15k, just in parts. 2.5 lift and coil over is ridiculous. You want a good coil over lift??? Money not an issue. Look at Genright

Most long arm kits have horrible geometry. Do to the way a JK is. They as well tend to have less belly clearance as the arms get hung up. Lifts that are well designed and long will be triangulated 4 link. BUT to even consider this type lift you will not want to use d30/d44 or even d44/d44< again its just ridiculous. BUt now to go full float axles in 1 to you just spent another 15k. Non of this bolt on and labor will about double cost.


I would bet the Metal cloak game changer will serve you better. want a lot of flex then go with their six packs and a game changer. still in the 4+k range,,,,,,

You can do anything with enough money.



My 2 door JKR on 4.5 ish depends on the load in it.
flexs rather well , rides well. Franken lift of parts. I pick the ones i feel will suit me best. joints to me its Johnny Joints. no matter who makes the arms.

I'm pretty sure Evolution offroad makes a long arm coil over kit in the 2.5" range. It's pretty expensive, but it has a pretty good reputation.
