This is going to be a really silly question...

Ok i have some really lame questions about a lifted suspension. Does a bouncy ride mean the suspension is stiff or soft?

And also I don't even know exactly how tall mine is..want to take a look and see what it might be?!

I'm being such a noob it's a little out of control.

that depends on what you mean by "bouncy". if you hit a bump and your rig tends to kind of float or roll front to back like a boat; that's "soft." if you hit a bump and it feels like someone kicked you in the butt but your rig doesn't float; that's stiff.

per your second question there are several threads on here where lift height determination is discussed. use the search function

Is that a "long arm" looks like you got a pretty good lift going on there
3-4"
And bouncy means soft. Might want to stiffen up the ride with a good shock. The Rancho RS9000 are adjustable and are awesome shocks.

Need better pics. Definitely looks like a long arm kit.

Don't be afraid to ask questions. No stupid questions only stupid responses and they usually start with"use search".

I think mine's soft then going off of all that. It just kind of shifts around. it doesn't really bother me..just trying to kind of figure out the terminology for mine in particular. I need to kind of get more specs on what I actually have going on there.

I'm glad it looks good! it's totally the lift that was on it when i got it. My friend looked at it and said it looked pretty solid and it wasn't a block lift or anything like that and I already wanted the jeep so I was sold.

Oops didn't put a pic. Here's one kind of from the front. I need one lower down to get the full effect underneath I think...

I got it for 13500 and it has 52000 miles. Crazily traded my much newer Honda fit for it. Just had to get into a jeep!!

assuming you got the 4.0, that's an INSANE price with that mileage. crap, you got about 4 grand in mods just looking at the little pix you posted. good buy

and I did the same; gave up my ridgeline for my rig.

That's a Full Traction long arm kit with probably 4 or 6 inch springs. To my knowledge, this is how they offer their kits. They run about $2,900 and that does not include shocks, the labor, CV drive shaft and slip yoke eliminator which you probably have as well. I don't have any personal experience with Full Traction but many have told me this is one of the best off the shelf kits you can buy. This won't be as cheap to drive as your Honda, but it's a NICE JEEP!!!! Good find.
