Lift Kit

OK, I need a new lift kit. I want a 4" lit for my 86 CJ7. All of the local shops are pushing Superlift. I have heard that superlifts will sag. Is this true? What about BDS, or Rubicon?

Re: Lift Kit

Almost every lift will sag some. People have liked super lift, bds and re kits and some have disliked them. I know people like bds because of their warenty. Which ever kit you get make sure you get new u-bolts, brake lines, spring bushings, new shocks, and a drop pitman arm. Also get new sway bar disconects, most of the ones included w/ lift kits are [email protected], the jks quicker discos are the best out there but they arn't cheep. Are you planning on doing the lift your self or paying a shop to do it? Installing a kit at home isn't that hard and you will gain knowledge and save alittle cash. I'd search through the jeep mags for the best price on the kit you want.

Re: Lift Kit

Springs are like good women...they all sag with age.

I assume you want a kit that has all of the parts you may need. Rubicon comes with everyting. I'm planning on going with the 4.5" Rubicon kit as soon as I have enough to cover the bill.

If your just looking for just springs then I would call National Springs in California. Alot of people have told me they make the best springs.
