richh789 Put 1.5 spacers on. Looks OK. When they are shot, I'll get 33s. Could fit 35s but rubbing is why it was lifted in the first place. I put pics in profile

Except your potential to roll is extremly high. With that much lift you'll need wider tires.

So the shackles add .5% more life points.

38" boggers.....this was way before anyone made any bolt on fenders which I am not a fan of anyway, but I guess they work

01-03-2012 10:29 AM
whY402Jay It would look too crazy on my Jeep, unless it was built for off-road racing.

banks316 3.5 BDS springs plus SOA would give you 9in lift, damn thats alot for a jeep
01-03-2012 09:18 AM
whY402Jay Are you going to run stock leafs? I was thinking about doing SOA but I have 3.5" BDS leafs and would need bigger tires.
01-02-2012 05:32 PM
richh789 Yes, 31S. Right now they rub the the flares pulling out of the driveway. I jacked the frame up 6 Inches to see how it looks, looked fine. Most people seem to run 33s.
01-02-2012 02:08 PM
banks316 It's possible, a friend of mine wanted 31 or 32's but had almost no money lucky for him I have welders and, spare parts and steel. We did a soa lift on his 2.5l
01-02-2012 01:13 PM
whY402Jay SOA with 31s?

billytheyj Oops ignore that craptastic picture number two... unless you can read it. The first one shows "about" the correct angle for your pinion to have for sye and cv shaft.

richh789 Thanks a million. Should rear yoke be in a straight line with driveshaft? Instructions from RC say don't change pinion angle. For the front I understand, don't want to change castor angles. I would think the rear should be pretty straight would eliminate any vibration, maybe ever so slightly down for when rear suspension is compressed.

I'm new to jeeps. Thanks for the help. is anyone can think of something else I should get before I start please let me know

banks316 If you do a normal SOA drop pitman is fine. If you use lift springs with a soa use stock drop pitman and pick up a cross over setup like the Teraflex kit. Don't by shocks till the end, everyone's setup comes out diffetent. One your rdy for shock you need to flex both front and rear then measure the extened, and collasped length to get the right size for.your setup. After that if your on a budget you can order the size you need. Superlift mares some softride shocks that are only $45 each from 4wheelparts.

soa

Bout to do soa lift on my yj. Ordering rc perches n a drop pitman arm. I've heard you need high steer conv, I've heard you don't. I drive my jeep on road regularly. And don't want to lose driveability.

I have 31s right now, and completely stock. Should I order a track bar? I've read ibuildembigs wright up, fantastic by the way. Gonna relocate brake lines like in the right up. Any recommendations on shocks that work from another vehicle? This forum is great and thanks in advance
