CJ-7 Suspension lift
I have a 1985 CJ-7 currently running 31-10.50's on it with what appears to be plenty of clearance. While rebuilding the front end, I stuck one of my old 36-14.50 mud tires on it for kicks. The tire fits in the front, but you can't steer. It looked like it would rub the fender opening corners in the back, but I didn't try it.
I re-arched the springs about 5 years ago because of sag. I don't have any idea if they're stock height or not, but they sure are rigid. I'm looking at putting a Skyjacker lift on the jeep, but I don't know if I should get a 2" or 4" kit. The final goal is to have a softer ride and fit 33's (which would/should fit now in comparison with the 31's)
Can anyone shed some light? If I go with a 2" will the Jeep sit the same height, higher, lower? If I go with the 4", will it be too much and I'll have to get longer driveshafts?
Any measurements would be helpful for those that have the Skyjacker lifts (spring length from eye-to-eye, arch depth, etc).
