Question anyone have a jeep front shackle inversion kit

i purchased earlier this a year a jeep yj trailmaster front spring inversion kit used off ebay. i have yet to install it(or my used 4'' lift kit for that matter) because i am missing a few pieces that i have to purchase and replace, but i was wondering if anyone else has done this and if it was worth the work or the expense of having the inversion kit installed, and if it truely improved the ride quality of our rigs ?

I have read that it helps signifigantly with the ride quality, but I have no personal experience.

I had one on my YJ for a long time and loved it. For me it worked well on and off the road. Your drive shaft should be fine

depends on what one he has, some models say not to go over three inches of lift. And some bolt in and some weld in. Some give you lift others dont. Find out who made it and its model.

i have the older model of rough country shackle inversion kit. it is exactly like the trailmaster kit. in fact, its missing a couple of bushing so im ordering them from trailmaster cuz rough country no longer supports the older kit. neither kit mentions anything about providing any lift.
