got me a free lift!!!

ive got a 4 inch skyjacker lift that i had to take off another jeep, well once i started getting into the process i realized that im gonna need som parts. i had to torch the bolts off the leafs to get them off and now i need new bushings due to them being melted and the bolts are seized inside the bushing, would i just call skyjacker up and buy a new set of bushings or could i use the bushings out of a complete prothane polyurethane bushing kit im planning on buying shortly? any advice would be awesome. also need new TC skid plate drop brackets cuz thats junk too.

You can also drop the TC with a stack of washers and some longer bolts.

i know rancho springs use different bushings i bought the prothane ones and the rear eyes fit but the front eyes dont fit they are too big the rancho springs for the rear have a small eye up front ha will have to get ranchos for the fornt eyes. And you can make your own t-case lowering kit. good luck!
