the only thing i think you really need to buy extra are new shocks and maybe brake lines if u go with a lift that your current brakelines will be too short for....

im no expert, so maybe someone else can back me up on this...
x2 you did fine. anywho, 3.5" is the max i'd go before doing sye, and spending bigger money. 3.5" springs, and shocks to accomodate, and drop pitman arm, and tcase lowering kit, and brake lines you'd be good. could even go w/ 32" tires. goood luck

new leaf springs

Hey Guys!!

Looking to get new leaf srpings for my 95 YJ. A little confused though. When the manufacturer says a 3.5" lift does this mean i need to add a bunch of components?? I'm just lloking to change out the springs.

I was originally looking to do just a shackle lift but the springs are flat and figure I might as well invest in new springs instead. I'm not looking to tower the jeep but give it a little more hieght to fit 31's and give it a more aggressive look. Would oem springs accomodate this??

The first thing the wife said when she saw it was "You're going to lift that thing...right??". LOL!!!
