Re: Suspension kit

Skyjacker makes really soft springs, they are a little more expensive but you get what you pay for.

Re: Suspension kit

i saw a guy on a run earlier this year with a superlift susp. on his yj and that thing would flex! i was really impressed. i think this would be a great kit for what you want. i had the skyjacker softride on my cj before i went spring over and it wasn't too bad but i don't know how the yj kit is personally.

Re: Suspension kit

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]I just finished installing the Rubicon Express 4.5" Extreme Duty kit on my 95 YJ. The kit is awesome!!!
The ride is drastically softer that stock and the articulation is superb. I highly recommend it. I called them direct, it arrived at my door 4 days later. The SYE kit is highly recommended as the actual lift height turned out to be 5 to 5.5". After the lift, there is only about 2.5" of slip yoke left in the transfer case; lots of driveline vibes too. My SYE kit will be here in about 3 days.
Good luck
