Question Jeep Suspension Help Lots of Pics included

Hey I have a 1999 Jeep Tj with dana44 rear dana 30 up front. This is a newb post but I would really appreciate the help. The guy I bought it from "custom" made his suspension . I want to find out what you guys think of it.. Long arm/ Short arm ect, I dont even know ... What I do know is that it flexes pretty well and has pretty decent street manners. Its around 4.5 inches of lift if that helps any.. Thanks in advance


The Jeep its self, shes pretty sharp though

Also is that a drive shaft? Very sharp angle. Do you have an SYE or upgrades DS that'll support that angle?

Do you know if the bolts are grade 8?

Don't wanna get too over-critical...unless you want me to

Yea thats the upper arm on the front. And yes that is the driveline, its actually not that steep I thinks its just how I took the picture. Yes that is a heim with spacers... I know that that is not good.. They do not have zerks, but yes they are grade 8 bolts. Thanks also for the reply and please feel free to get over critical

Rubicon express control arms, If it is flexing as much as you say, I would ditch the stock control arms as they will bend, get some other RE units in there or currie etc.
