whats the actual lift height of a 4" suspension for the YJ?
I was just curious what is the actual lift height of a 4" skyjacker, superlift, etc... suspension lift. Is it usually more than 4"? Is it usually taller in front? It will be going on a 4cyl. , soft top, factory bumper. Also how much lift do you need in front to level with the rear. Please give me as much detail as possible. thanks.

depends on the brand, but most will settle right around 4" of lift. but at first it will be closer to 6 for a short time till they settle in. and whatever kit you buy, should be level.

couldina sed it bedder miselph..

doctor hit the nail on the head.

its not like liftin a truck (suspension kits come a few inches taller inthe front to compensate for nosedive and ultimately level yer truck;

jeep suspensions, if ya git a 4" lift, ya git 4" springs all around.

if ya get a crap 4" lift (rough country), you will get under 4" cuz the lift sux.

if ya drop a few xtra bux and get yerself a quality (rubicon express lift), then you will net about 6" and will settle around 4-5"

they are night and day.

with a true 4" of lift, will 33's be stuffed or will they have plenty of clearance?

plenty of clearance clarance:D

not with rough country though, i cant stress that enough...

im guessin ya prolly want some input from other jeep dewds, but i have run 4" kits from (skyjacker, superlift, rubicon express, and trailmaster), so i got a good grip on things.

i had a buddy run the rough country lift, so im very familiar with that one too.

i'm suprised, i had good luck w/ rough country. i've also used sky jacker, and rancho, all were decent springs. i've used tuff country, and they were terrible. super stiff, and were much taller than stated. i think they were boxed wrong, when you put 2" springs soa, and they don't even settle to 4" it kinda sucks. had to remove springs and make a bastard pack for that jeep to make it down to earth.
