Ok, another cry for suspension help........
So, I can get a (in my opinion) great deal on used, but excellent condition 2.5" lift leaf springs. Obviously, I'll be getting new shocks, but can I use the stock shackles or do I need new ones? Also, with 2.5", are there any other modifications that need to be done? 91 YJ 2.5L

Your stock shackles will work, for the rest, i'm honestly not to sure, maybe a TC drop kit

Ahhhh, forgot about that.......

no t-case drop might need a rear axle shim to correct the drive line angle a little bit.

It that pretty simple or a PITA?

simple, its just an angled block that sits on the axle perch between the spring and the axle.

With 2.5" lift it should be minimal.

Alright, thanks!

You will need brake line extensions or make your own. I used braided ones from Quadratec.

Gotcha......a lot of things I didn't think about.
