yellowsnow ^^^True story there, spring over is not cheap.

Here is a short list you are looking at.
-Lengthened drive shafts
-extended brake lines
-high steer, even on gravel trails they are a hand full. The cheap way would be 4" drop pitman arm, but a word of caution-this will multiply the stress put on the steering gear mounts. After one year of running a drop pitman arm the leverage had worn out the splines on the steering gear.
-Spring pads
-rear traction bar to reduce axle roll.

My advice, save your money and wait for a used lift to pop up on craigslist. I love the spring over/shackle reversal on mine but it was way more money in the long run to do it right, and I used springs I already had and built all my own bracketry. A spring under is not without issues but is deff the more cost effective route.

I'm looking to do a soa swap. I have to do it as cheap as I can (I have a baby on the way) what can I use again what do I have to have and what can I just get as I go. This jeep only get driven on the road for a few miles. But I don't want the the axles to fall off.
