Picked up some Coils Now What

So i just picked up some 3.5 in Rubicon Express Coils and need to know what else i will need to run them.

Here is the list of what i have compiled.

1. The Coils
2. New Shocks (my skyjacker ones suck anyway) OME/Doshtech?? how bout a remote res type??? just asking
3. Remove rear sway bar
4. JKS Quick Disco's for the front
5. Possible T-Case Drop till i can afford sye and rear drive shaft and adjustable control arms

i think that would cover it to get me an xtra 1.5 inches to keep my tires outta the fenders

anyone opinions are welcome

Larry

You are gonna need rear upper adjustable arms along with a tcase drop if your not going to get an SYE right away.

I've got the 3.5" coils. Here's the way I did it:

1" body lift
1" motor mount lift (helps with the rear drive shaft angle a bit)
teraflex rear track bar bracket
Rubicon Express RE1600 front adjustable track bar
Rubicon Express rear extended links
RockKrawler front lower adjustable short arms (to correct the caster)
removed front sway bar completely

thats about it. Pretty simple setup. I can fit 35s with that and it does pretty good. The adjustable front lower control arms are important to fix the caster otherwise the death wobble can get pretty bad. All the other arms are stock and they flex really good.

I didn't drop the skid. But I have a rubicon without the slip yoke so I'm not sure if that made a difference or not. I'd try it without the drop first... you may not need it.

Ben

*edit: oh yeah, and new shocks. I can get the part number for the exact size I have if you need it. I had to experiment with a few different lengths.

What size tires are you running with that setup? Aiming for something like that by winter next year.

I just instaled the RE 3.5" kit and I highly suggest their monotube shocks. They have a very nice ride (on road and off road).

You have the same front end setup that I'm running (SRC bumper and winch). The added weight tends to lower the front a good 1 - 1 1/2". I would suggest picking up a front pair of adjustable coil spacers to make up the difference.

I'm still saving for an SYE and CV. The vibrations are not a major issue but it will need to be finished soon.

Good luck.
