I got my lift today. That was quick. it took less than a week. I got the superlift system with shocks. My questions are. And they may sound stupid, but i want to avoid more work. The bushings that go into the shock have a small beveled edge on one side and a longer edge on the other. Which end goes toward the inside?? Also Does the springs with the Angle shim go to the back??
Thanks for any help

I have no idea about the bushings... but the shims should be in the back, (at least on the springs I've seen), and the "fat" end of the shim towards the t-case. this helps even out the driveline angles, and prevent shim and shake...
What kind of suspension? accessories/add ons? where from? details, details! Let us live vicariously.... /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

What I can't figure out is why my Black Diamond suspension put only 4 leafs in the front, and 5 in the back??!! I'm 100% sure I put them on properly, too, seeing as there was extra "nipple" length on the rear springs to accomodate the rear shims. (figured I'd eat up your question with mine... GOBBLE!) Oh yeah, and that's what the destructions told me to do... /wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif

Yes, the spring packs with the wedges go in the rear. Make sure the thick part of the wedge is toward the front of the Jeep. As far as the shock bushing goes...I can't visualise what you are talking about. The shocks I installed had symetrical bushings. Make sure you grease EVERYTHING up well, or that poly will start squeaking right away. Good Luck!

Ditto on greasing the poly bushings. If you can, go to a marine or boat store and get marine grease. This stuff is water proof and
therefor will stay put much longer than standard grease.

Ditto on what everyone has said. As for the shock bushings, Superlift has those two piece design bushings. You put the long tapered end into the shock eye. This design just makes it a little easier to put together (and get apart if you need to). Also you might organize your u bolts before you start. The front axle, passenger side uses one larger size u bolt (against the pumpkin) and one smaller one. The drivers side is two small ones (I think). Rear uses all same size. Good luck.
