Installing lift / go bigger?
So i started taking apart my jeep today to install a 3.5" RE kit.
A few thoughts...
1) Should I drill a new hole for my Trac bar or get an adjustable one?
2) I want to go bigger... (not that big :cool: )... can I add coil spacers, (3/4 or 1") on top of my lift?
3) I am def going to be buying a 1" BL also.

Also, it seems like the front axle has rotated since I have taken everything apart. What has been done to push it towards the front of the jeep in order to put the longer LCA's in? Or does this usually just take some extra time and work to get everything lined back up?

1: Get a new Trac-Bar.
2: Yes you can add spacers.
3: Good plan.

Rotated by how? If you have installed the lower arms, the axle will have turned a little bit if you don't have adjustable upper arms, but nothing to worry about.

I have been looking at the 1" polyurethane lifts. Such as the Prothane 1" Polyurethane Body lift from 4wheelparts. Any comments on the Poly vs. "block" style body lifts? Kit says it includes grill mount bushings...
Is there anything else I would need?

I used the Daystar 1" poly BL. Poly will be a stiffer ride than you're used to, but you won't notice after a few days and you'll be distracted b/c you'll be pumped about your new altitude.
