4" Short Arm Performance Suspension System by Full Traction

Anyone have any experience with this kit? I dont rock crawl, but i do go out exploring all the time on rugged trails. Is this a good lift kit? im running a 4 cyl 98 tj with MT/R's. Thanks

I have the 4" FT flex arm Kit on my 99" sport and so far Love it. Good articulation not too stiff. almost rides like stock on the road. One problem I have heard is the suspention may start to sqeek. But i lubed everything during assembly and it hasent made a noise yet. oh and I found mine on Ebay new with shocks for $650 shipped.

I just installed the 3" FT lift, and it came out to actually be 4 1/4" inches of lift. That 4" FT lift may end up being 5" or better. Plan on also installing a SYE/driveshaft with that much lift. I love the ride of the FT coils. Granted, they're paired up with OME Long Travel shocks, but between the two, the Jeep rides like a champ. I'm planning on a trail ride this weekend, I'll let you know how well it flexes. I disconnected the front swaybar last week and flexed a little on a big rock....seems like I'm going to like this new suspension just fine! I'll bring back pics. I like the overall quality of the FT lift systems. It's perfect for what I want to do with my Jeep. If I was really into hard core wheeling, I would probably go with RK or RE long arm kits, but I can't do that right now. Til then, I'm very happy with the FT kit.

Here's a picky of her with 5 1/2" of lift(1" body lift) and 33" tires.......
