Soa

I'm looking to do a soa swap. I have to do it as cheap as I can (I have a baby on the way) what can I use again what do I have to have and what can I just get as I go. This jeep only get driven on the road for a few miles. But I don't want the the axles to fall off.
Thanks
Dayl R.

cheap and SOA don't go well together..goto the YJ section and check out the sticky thread on SOA at the top.. will give you a better general idea of what you need.

^^^True story there, spring over is not cheap.

Here is a short list you are looking at.
-Lengthened drive shafts
-extended brake lines
-high steer, even on gravel trails they are a hand full. The cheap way would be 4" drop pitman arm, but a word of caution-this will multiply the stress put on the steering gear mounts. After one year of running a drop pitman arm the leverage had worn out the splines on the steering gear.
-Spring pads
-rear traction bar to reduce axle roll.

My advice, save your money and wait for a used lift to pop up on craigslist. I love the spring over/shackle reversal on mine but it was way more money in the long run to do it right, and I used springs I already had and built all my own bracketry. A spring under is not without issues but is deff the more cost effective route.
