Re: Need Help Picking YJ Lift
This has been discussed numerous times here, but I'll give you my 2 cents.
Coil conversion--Every coil conversion I've seen on YJ and CJ have a really bad squat problem on the steep stuff. Will take you mucho experimenting and time and money to dial in.
Spring over--Your best way to go, but has steering issues you will have to sort out re:bumpsteer. YJ springs have a tendency to sag real bad with SOA though.
Shackle reversal--IMO the most overrated mod in existence, and yes can cause strange behavior under heavy braking.
Bottom line--IMO your best bet is a quality spring under lift in the 4" size. Overall, your best bet is SOA, but a lot of work to put into stock YJ axles which are gonna break anyway. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
