1.5 lift

....what about 1.5 lift black diamond?
how it is on-road ?

I need to replace my leaf springs and shocks...but Damn...the replacement "stock" costs almost more than a lift kit...
I won't go off road since my jeep is a highway queen...
I thought that 1,5 lift kit would be almost like a stock replacement...and i'll get a better look..and will works good ( i guess) on-road...
would be necessary install pitman arm and transfercase drop and long brake lines..??

Thanks...a lot !

If your sagging bad, stock would give you a easy 2 inch lift
if not more
nothing else should be required
with stock or 1.5

Not sagging really bad..but the leaf are original 21 years old...so they are little flat...
I am afraid that a lift kit would be too stiff on-road...but i don't know..since i don't have any experience...
thanks..

btw are the lift kit made in taiwan or china ?
The replacement is sold by Omix-ada so i am sure that would be made in taiwan ( I hope ) but maybe is made in china...
