jeepmutt You either need track bar relocators or adj track bars. Used stock-length shocks are too short to allow for full droop when wheeling, and they could be too worn out for a safe road ride. Depending on how much lift your 3" springs actually provide, you may find that running stock control arms in the front allow for death wobble.

TJGreg nope, rubicon shocks are exactly the same shocks on other TJ's. I'd look for extended bumpstops though. You may not need the rear swaybar links, but get a set of disconnects for the front, you'll kick yourself later for not getting them

lunneborgc So all I need is extended Swaybar Links front and rear? Also, are Rubicon shock mounts different than regular TJ Shock mounts? There is a set of used shocks I can get, wanna make sure they'll fit. I thought I read somewhere they were different. Thanks again!

TJGreg you'll want to look for extemded bumpstops, at full flex with stockers you may compress the spring too much until they sag. You'll need extended swaybar links f/r (but better you get front disconnects)

If you want to spend more, you could go for adjustable control arms, adjustable track bars and extended brake lines. You may need a sye / cv (though a 1" BL and MML, or TC drop will fix vibes if you even get them).

3" Springs/shocks and ?

Hey folks, I was thinking about building my own 3" lift from parts. What would I need aside from 3" Springs, and Shocks? I wouldnt think its that much different from a BB, but I also wouldn't know. I have planned on doing the BB + BL. I saw Rustys off road has springs for sale for around $100 - $110 a pair. Thanks for your time
