Long arm kit

I'm looking into a long arm upgrade kit for my jeep. What are your opinions on brands/price/quality/capability. I dont need the lift. Just the upgrade

If all you need is the upgrade I'd look at Rough Country.

I have a 4" super lift with some spacers so I have 6" in the front and about 5" in the rear with coil springs and bilstein shocks for a 6" lift

I guess it depends on how much you want to spend and how much work you want to do.

Rock Krawler is a personal favorite
Rock Krawler Catalog

If I had it to do over again I would go with Genright. But you'll have a bit of welding to do.

Ok thanks. I'm just wondering if I can still use my coils or if I should invest in the hi flex coils

Coils should be fine.

Are you talking about coil over shocks? Not neccesary. Very cool though.

Take a look at Clayton Off-Road & Gen-Right.

I'm not a fan of the radius arm front, but that's a whole different discussion. I'd prefer the 3-link or 4-link + double shear track bar for the front.

Hi flex coils? Do you mean coil overs?? Coils will do just fine.
