Re: suspension lift help

I guess I'll throw what I know out there. My CJ is not spring over axle (SOA) but I do know it is a lot more work than just throwing the springs on top of the axle. Lots of custom fab work, planning, etc. in order to do it correctly. Depending on how much lift you want/need, the easiest thing would be a spring under (SUA) kit that'll get you up to 4" of lift. That'll fit 33's. With 1-1.5" body lift and maybe some fender trimming you'll get 35's under there. From what I know of SOA set-ups, Wrangler springs work well but tend to wear out quickly. Hope this is somewhat helpful.
