Hey big, where did u get ur drop pitman arm, the ones I have found were only like 3.5 inch drop and I thought u said urs was 4 inches. I have also seen the extreme drop pitman arm I think it is for the xj tho. Do u know if that would fit the yj?

I guess I needed to be more clear. It's a arm for a 4 inch lift kit, not a 4 inch drop. You can also use a 79 f150 drop arm too, but the draglink will have to be upgraded

I've been reading this forum for a month and it's great learning experience.
I have a 93 yj it has 3 inch body lift and I believe 4 inch shackles. But it's not soa. I have 35s on it but where I go mudding in florida. (5a or bust) tjere os some deep puddles. I would like to lift it wth soa. My question is can i keep the shackles and do soa . Want to get high as possible. I do not drive ot in the streets. Would like to keep engine out of water. Thanks for your info and replies

You can do soa with your setup but it's gonna be hard to get the rear shaft to fit

To go that high, your gonna need a slip yoke kit with at least a 1350 single joint, and dropping the case, and rotate the rearend

Ibuildembig,
When you set up the rearend do you set the pinion angle the same as the tc output angle? If I remember right you set the pinion at 28* how much tc drop did you use? My jeep currently has tc 4" lift w tc drop and I have no vibes so I'm guessing when I go to soa I can set driveshaft the same as it is now and be all right. What's your thoughts?

No I set it by eye. Every jeep is different. I usually set at 2-3 degrees below the centerline of the shaft

Ibuildembig,

Sorry if this has been covered already but what springs do you recommend for the SOA, my 95 has these awful 4" RC SUA springs on it, now sits around 3" in the front and 3.75" in the back, dreadful ride. I would like to start bringing in the parts to do the SOA on it and will need to buy new stock springs, can your recommend a brand other than the jeep dealer ?

Thanks!!

One other thing, pivoting the rear differential up that much (dana35) does it starve the bearings up front of oil?

Dad is, not my choice. I wanna keep it but I don't need it or have the funds right now. I'm working on a truck but not sure what his plans are.

Really nice work. I have been thinking of doing this to my 94 that already has 4" spring lift and a 1.5" body lift that were on it when I got it. I would like to loose the body lift which is the reason I am considering the SOA. I have installed SYE and CV driveline and removed the transfercase drop but I'm concerned that the SOA will put the rear drive line in too much of a bind. Is my concern correct?

hey big quick question I'm doing a build now and the plan is to take the 304 amc v8 out of a fiberglass 76 cj5 that my dad has and put it in a 95 yj frame and tub to have a steel tub and we have a hard and soft top for the yj but no top for the cj the motor i mentioned had a borg warner t18 4 speed and a dana 20 tc so my question is when we do the SOA on the new(ish) front and rear end how should I handle the tc given there is no need for a SYE on the dana 20 if I'm not mistaken

The biggest problem is the 20 front output is on the wrong side
