and can i add a spacer to the front to level the jeep out without getting vibrations? i read in a mag that "we were a little nervous about putting 2.5 inches of lift to the rear of our TJ without a transfer case drop" ...OK they said to the REAR...does that mean i can add a spacer to the FRONT without any increase in vibrations since the rear DS is the one that will be suffering.
alright for tools all i need is torx, floor jack, jack stands, socket/ratchet/combination wrench (in other words a tool set)
any other tools i'll need?
i was readin a write up for this kit and it says don't over extend the brake lines when dropping the axle. so where are the brake lines? i need to know so i can be checking them to make sure i don't over extend
do i have to get an alignment after i lift the jeep?
and last question. i notice this kit doesn't come with new bumpstops or bumpstop extensions...do i need them???
thanks a lot guys. im orderin the kit tomorow.
I thought you already had a 3" Rough Country lift... Oh well...
Don't know about your brakelines, the kit probably comes with a relocation bracket for the front brake lines, if not it's probably not neccesary, but you should keep an eye on it off-road the first couple times to make sure.
Why do you need a spacer in front to level your Jeep? If it is not level, then putting a spacer in shouldn't create driveline vibrations.
Sounds like you have most of the tools covered. There shouldn't be any specialty tools for this install.
You will see the brakelines when you start working on your Jeep. They will be the rubber hoses that run from the frame to the axles (one on each side in the front, and just one on the driver's side in the rear).
You should get an alignment after you install the lift.
With 2" of lift, you shouldn't need longer bumpstops unless your tires are rubbing on the fenders. Then you can get extended ones to stop that problem.
