looking into different short arm 4" lift kits
as for my jeep...
2001 4.0 5 spd. 90k miles.
Bought it 5 months ago, im guessing its got a pro comp 4" lift (only by the not stock height, 33" tires, and a pro comp sticker from PO (haha i know real technical of me)), the shocks are white with a red boot and engraving on them, dont remember off hand but i plan on taking some pictures when i can and writing down engravings and getting input. theres 1.25" BL on it, 33"x12.5x15. as far as i can tell stock axles with 3.73 gear as per build sheet.
The ride is very bumpy which i understand owning different lifted trucks and what not in the past, but seems overkill the slightest bump in the road sends me flyin, i dont have much money but looking around today and saw this Skyjacker 4" Economy Lift Kit with Hydro Shocks for 97-02 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec
for less than 600 bucks... now its got my attention, i also am looking into the currie or rugged ridge steering upgrade for the upgraded tie rod becuase i really dont like the flex in the stock one... plus bigger is better right:punk: anyway just curious if anybody has this (yes i did read the lift reviews and saw the one in there and hes happy with it) wondering if anybody else has it or any information on this lift. will be mostly wheelin in the colorado rockies (colorado springs and boulder county mainly), nothing too major as its my DD but i would like to be able to do some decently technical(fun) stuff and know my suspension and or steering isnt going to be the reason i dont make it.
any input will be much appreciated, also a basic coil vs short arm lift benefits because i dont have the money for a Long Arm kit nor does it sound like i really want one.
