Anybody know much about superlift lifts?

I'm looking at the 3.5" superlift yj lift. I found it new for $520 including shocks and drop pittman arm. Sounds like a good deal to me, but I don't know anyone using one. Any help would be appreciated.

TIA,
Kevin

Re: Anybody know much about superlift lifts?

Cant say much other than the trail masters held up much better than the superlifts did in my case.The superlifts sagged a good inch first time out if not a little more..That was a cj though with skinnier springs..Wrangler leaves are wider so they may hold there arch a little better.

It's as close to a 1ton as it can get and still be a jeep!!! Gotta love it!!

Re: Anybody know much about superlift lifts?

I got the same setup on my yj. I've had them on for over 3 years now and they have barely sagged at all. Installation was easy except for the couple of stubborn bolts. I didn't get the drop pitman arm but the steering without it is fine. They flex well if you get a disconnect for the front track bar (a 7/16" clevis pin, $2 at your hardware store) and just remove the rear track bar as well as removing the front sway bar. The springs are fairly stiff which leads to a bumpy ride on road, but they aren't so stiff as to limit your articulation. I'm running 33"s and they rub at full flex, you might want to look into getting a 1" body lift and longer brake lines too. Also a slip yoke eliminator kit on the t-case would be a good idea, but it's not necessary if you drop the t-case. I'll see if i can't get you a pic sometime soon.

Re: Anybody know much about superlift lifts?

I've also been searching lifts, and the 4 inch superlift caught my attention at like 400 bucks. does this sound right? ALl the other started at 700 and went up. Is superlift complete with everything, pitman arm, and tranxfer case drop/ what not? Are the springs real stiff on the road that they can't sell for as much as the other kits? I can't find anything wrong with superlift.. especially price wise

Give me some fresh air, and give me that farm, give me some time with you in my arms, cause I'm gonna feed my soul, where the black top ends...

Re: Anybody know much about superlift lifts?

I had the superlift softride 2 1/2" lift on my cj-7 for about 5 years. I didnt use the superlift shocks, I used RS 5000. They are a great improvement over factory ride, not too soft but predictable. I have recently gone SOA with those springs. The rear is a little soft so I put in an add-a-leaf. They flex pretty good in this configuration. The sagging was minimal when they were under the axle, I havent tested it too much yet to know how they will last. But they have been flexed completely into a reverse arch several times with only sight sagging so far. In my opinion they are a good spring for the price, but if I was to buy new today I would probably go with Big Dicks. For the money they seem to be very good quality and have a great warranty. If money is an issue, like it is for most of us, I would not be afraid of the Superlift spring.
good luck,
Jeremy

Re: Anybody know much about superlift lifts?

I've had my 31/2" Superlift about 3 years, I think it rides better than the factory set up. I went with the t/c drop kit but still had vibration(tolerable), recently went with the SYE kit but don't have it back together yet.Also when I did mine I went with brake line extensions and drop pitman arm. I have experienced some minimal sag, so with 33x12.50's my next step will be a 1" body lift. Overall I really like the Superlift
