4" lift Stock Arms

For the short term you should be okay. Any vibs? How do the driveshafts look in relation to the diffs? Stock arms flex really well, but part of that is because the arms are thin and under load the metal will flex. I got to see two of them bend this past weekend.. was not good. Thus as soon as you can get some better after market ones in there.

you may find some binding with the stock arms on full droop. How do you find the ride? When I ran stock arms with a 3.5 lift I found it extra bouncy.

the jeep doesn't ride any differently than stock
other than with the MT's around 35-40 I get just lil steering wheel vibe
and when i go over a bridge or what not and that lil lip between bridge and road when I hit that it is like a Tank..
but no vibes or anything like that

I went out back of town and did some flexing and no binding or any type of noises as I drove up some banks to get flexed...the tire that was drooping actually looked like it was doing just fine
