Lightbulb Wheel hop help

Drove to and from the shore this weekend 130 miles each way. Once on the way down and twice on the way back up I experienced major wheel hop. Not fun to receive such a bad shimmy on the parkway at around 60 - 65 mph.

The springs and helpers are for the most part flat and need to be replaced. So replacing them is my plan of attack.

94 YJ. 4 cyl.

Here is my question. I'm looking online at Quadratec, Black Diamond 1.5" Suspension Lift Kit as the replacement.

Has anyone had any issues or experiences with this kit, or does any one have any other ideas or kits. I'm not looking to go big on a lift, but the thought of a little bit of lift would be nice.

Thanks in advance for any advice or ideas.


I do not aim with my hand: he who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.

most of the smaller lift kits will be about the same.. the key would be maybe upgrading to some nicer riding shocks if its in you budget. rustys offroad did have in the past some good riding shocks in $35 range. I ran them on my zj and tj..
