hey everyone. i have a 98 tj. i recently bought 4 inch coil springs and extendedd shocks to lift up my jeep. besides the shocks and coils, what else will i need to keep everything running right? such as: pitman arm, disconeects, track bars, etc...? thanks for the help
Probably the easiest way to find this information out is to check out the lifts offered by the manufacturer of your coils/shocks. See what is included in the kits that are similar to your size of lift. I don't want to give you bad information, that's why I'm suggesting you do this first.

To do a 4" kit correctly, you'll pretty much replace all of your stock suspension. If all you've got is the springs and shocks, you're looking at Upper and Lower Adjustable Control Arms, F&R Trackbars, Bumpstops, Longer Brakelines or moving the bracket on the frame, SYE (nonRubi), CV Driveshaft, CV style Track Bar Bracket.
Bite the hand that feeds you . . . you've had more than enough to eat already.
One thing to keep in mind is with that particular suspension lift kit, do not install nor should you let anyone talk you into installing a dropped Pitman arm. Doing so will just cause a steering problem known as bump steer.
For a 4" suspension lift, it is best to install a SYE kit and longer CV driveshaft to prevent drivetrain vibrations. At 4" of height, the rear driveshaft starts to become too short and the rear driveshaft's u-joint angle becomes too steep which is what causes the vibrations. A simple 1" TC drop will not work to get rid of the vibrations a 4" lift will cause.

mine came with lower arms,pit man arm,tc drop brakets,rear track bar,springs,& shocks. have stock drive shafts still. Im from the flat lands so i dont flex much to find out how well it works. i did climb a tree once and bent the front steering arm though.
When the sh*t gets deep ....Im bringin the jeep
