lee indy that skid bar is on a jk.
i did put a set of axles under a LJ this weekend and once everything was bolted up we had to put the 3.5 in springs back in. the trick to that is put the cack exactly under the center of the axle then have some one stand on caliper and or have some one lift the opposite side then they slide right in. do the passenger side first as the draglink will hamper down travel more on that side.

cleveland99 I have stick tj 4.o
04-15-2013 11:24 AM
lee indy one thing i will say is automatics have the transmision skid bar. the axle hits that thing pretty early so loosening the driver side and letting it hang made a big difference.
04-15-2013 11:23 AM
lee indy nope. same exact suspension. only difference is the sway bar which you disconnect anyway. we also put 4 jku rubi springs in a 2 door and netted another inch of lift. i could see 6in springs needing a compressor.
04-15-2013 11:19 AM
cleveland99 Dont the rubi allow for a farther drop in arms stock anyway I think thats what the issue is from what I can tell about having to use spring comp
04-15-2013 11:11 AM
lee indy installed kappas body lift on friday pretty straight forward...... still hate them.
also pulled the 4in front springs out of my jk to remove a 1/4in spacer. no spring compressors and did that by myself.

Ah, gotcha. Yeah, slow and steady is pretty good considering I can't go fast any more... At least I have the armor and the rubber around me.

He's only going with the 1.25. So really not bad.
Actually with all the negativity about the 3" BL, my wife had a wreck in ours before changing out the BL and nothing happened like what people speculate. Not to say it couldn't happen, just not every time.

This is what we did to get the 4" in.
