What have you decided to go with for a lift set up?

nick50471 Gerald at Savvy can hook you up with gears and kits from Superior Axle. High quality stuff and his Superior Axle prices are tuff to beat.

romadeagle83 4.56*
12-30-2011 07:52 PM

Yes you will need master install kits that has everything including bearings.

$300/axle is fair price for labor. Some guys want you to buy the parts from them others don't care.

You believe? Look at the tag on the diff to be certain. also need to know exactly what diff it is.

4.0L and 5 speed manual tranny 4.10 is OK. 4.56 is preferred.
12-30-2011 06:45 PM
Cons_Table I don't know how much of a difference there is between gear sets. Mine are G2, haven't had an issue. Just remember, u want gears for front and rear axles...plus it's a good idea to get master install kits for each axle.

Can anyone vouch for that?? And no need to worry about installation cost...a guy I work with in the shop says he'll do it for me for no charge....as long as he has a warm garage to work in lol

Check a junkyard maybe. 4 cylinder axles came with 4.10 gearing from the factory. It'd probably cost u less to buy axles and swap them in than to pay to get your current axles regeared.

4.10s with an I6 5 speed and 33s is AMAZING! This is coming from a guy who lugged his jeep around with a 4 cyl. 5 speed 4.10s and 33s. Plenty of power and good Interstate rpms

Your need a dial indicator with a magnetic base. Some layout dye and a whole lot of luck if you have never done it before. I dont see many folks doing this on thier own.

Varies on where you are. Around here, I've heard quotes from $150 per axle to $1800 for both (both not including parts). Shop around and find a good deal.

You re-gear both the front and rear axle differentials. AKA: pumpkins Not the trany.

Anywhere from $500 to $1,000, or so i hear.

You'll probably want to regear; a friend (solman on here) had 3.07s with his 33s and I don't think he cared for it much. I do know he dealt with it for a long time, but he was very happy when he got it regeared.

Dont forget to buy shocks too... The Savvy Kit doesnt come with them. I am pulling the trigger on the Savvy Lift in a few weeks. But i will not be buying the Rancho shocks that are $425 for a set of 4.

Depending on what motor, trans and gears you have you may still need to regear with 33's.

Sounds good, just keep in mind that to keep from having vibes with 3" of suspension lift you might need to drop the t-case if you aren't going to do an SYE. I'd be surprised if a mml would be enough to completely get rid of any vibes you may get.

It all depends on what he wants, which is why I think he needs to think a bit more before jumping into anything.

Lol, wasn't saying you can or can't; I was trying to explain as to maybe why Currie doesn't have springs smaller than for 3" of lift height. As for DD wranglers having 20" of belly height, I'm hoping to achieve just that when I'm done. Take a look at Imped's build; I'm pretty sure he has at least 19"-19.5" of belly clearance on a short lift and 35s. The OP has thrown around the option of both 33s and 35s, which is why I'll still give options for both. Like I said in my post, he obviously isn't decided.

I have 17.5" and can go just about anywhere I want.
