jpdocdave ya, they make soa kits that are mainly bolt on, or you can do some fab work yourself. tires aren't your problem, change to soa you'll be happy. you can run any 6" lift shock, and it will ride nice. stay away from add a leafs (stiff) and i've had bad luck w/ tough country springs (stiff). o.e. replacement springs are a good bet

i've never seen shocks welded to a frame, got pics of that?

ouch, i just thought about riding in that jeep again.
Yah I just bought the jeep 2 months ago. The woner couldn't even find front shocks long enough for the jeep and had them welded onto the frame! My brothers things the tires are too hard I dont. What do you guys think?

yjwrangler well...it is a jeep i run 33's with a 2 inch shackle lift, the stock drive train had 167,000
i never did any of that slip yoke eliminator stuff and i wheel the piss out of it, still great shape..so anyway its ruff but i mean it is a jeep

[TheYJGuy] SOA lift give you about 5.5" of lift. If you buy NEW stock leaf spring assemblies, you will probably get about 6 or 7 inches of lift at first, but SOA lifts put a little more stress on the leaves, which is why I would suggest buying new stock replacements.

Rear assembly: $75

Front assembly: $75

In addition to the SOA lift, you will need longer brake lines, I suggest that on the stainless steel braided variety, a t-case drop kit, and a SYE kit to bolt up to your t-case, along with a CV driveshaft.

Anything I'm missing, guys?

Hey guys Im a noob to suspension. I have a Very clean 1988 Jeep wrangler sahara 4.2 5 spd. Tared frame, webber carb, wild ext 33's, rancho shocks, add leaf, leaf spring total lift is nine inches. My ride is extremley harsh every little bump is felt. After a while of driving through the back roads of pa my back feels like it just got run over. Im looking to buy a 4 inch lift with 2 inch shackles any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I do wheel the jeep every weekend winter or summer. Thanks guys
