3" coil spring lift review on the highway...

My concerns are that on the highway i might get into death wobble with a 3" coil spring lift. Or so i have been told by some other guys with there jeeps. is this true?

Also does the 3" coil spring lift actually bring it up 3" or not quite?

You should be fine as long as you get all the right parts. I went from no lift to 3.5" then to 4.5" and now 5.5" and have never had any problems. It should bring your jeep up 3"'s unless you have a winch and upgraded bumpers which could cause it to sag just a lil.

Well for starters... stock jeeps can get death wobble.. though I would say adding a suspension lift may increase the chances. Get a complete kit, front adj track bar, rear if you can afford it. Adj control arms etc. Then make sure it all installed correctly.. also make sure you get an alignment after the install as well as make sure your tires are balanced.
