4 inch lift

I was thinking of installing a 4 inch lift kit on my 92yj. I was told that the drive line would have to be extended along with the break lines. Is this true. Also any suggestions on a good 4 inch lift kit.

Thanks Pappy

I have the Rough Country 4" lift kit. I used everything that was in the kit (tcase drop and brake line relocation brackets) I've had no problems yet. But if you were going to wheel it hard I would suggest longer brake lines. I haven't seen mine at full flex, but they're probably pretty close to tight.

And I like the RC lift. Mine doesn't ride smooth, but I think that's because of the stock shackles being rusty. That being said I think it's a good lift for the price. But I bet that the more expensive lifts ride smoother.
But who wants that? It's a jeep, it's fun!

The shackle is what lets the spring compress and depress by letting it get longer and shorter. If your shackles are rusty than your ride will suck no matter what springs you have. Lift springs are usually a rougher ride until they are broken in, but if you never grease your shackle or spring bolts that doeskin really matter.

As for a 4" lift kit, if you use everything supplied in the kit you will be fine. If you want to wheel hard you will need to do a little more than just the kit though. Like SYE, and better brake lines for sure.
