Lift Questions

About to install the Skyjacker 4in SA lift. Does anyone have any pointers/techniques/things youve learned while installing your lift that you would share with me. Whether it be using PB Blaster on bolts a day before I remove them, or anything else, that would be great!

Thanks!

Does the lift come with new CA or are they staying stock?

the goods: as the name states its an economy lift so it totaled with shipping around $600. so VERY cheap. it comes with new lower control arms front and back new sway bars and a rear track bar relocating bracket (front requires a new hole drilled) new front and rear coil springs and four hydro shock, also a transfer case lowering bracket. it was an intermediate install, hit a couple hitches and overall took 16 hours -_- but wasnt too bad.
on-road: a bit bumpy at higher speeds although does well on large dips and holes.
off-road: ive only taken it on a short little test so far but it handled...surprisingly well ( for being an economy kit) decent compression decent return and great clearance with 33" tires.

The bad: terrible instructions and a somewhat arduous install. bumpy on road

Recommend? YES. if you want a lift and dont want to spend a ton of money, this is surprisingly worth it. not for serious off roading ut is a nice in between.

front


rear
