New lift...

Little bit of back ground on my Jeep, I started with a Jeep on a 2 1/2 lift on 31s. I did a V8 swap and the front end started sagging so I installed a 2 1/2 add a leaf. I later broke the smallest spring in my rear right pack, so I removed it and installed a larger 2 1/2 add a leaf. I went through and painted, cleaned and lubed everything I could get my hands on. I did a SOA lift and now im sitting on 35s, im very happy with my lift. I dont even have shocks on it yet and it rides very smooth. It also gets alot of looks going down the road. You can see my new pics by going to myspace.com and searching for my page using my email [email protected].

Offset front spring perches
Rear spring perches
Extended brake lines/ rear is still not long enough
4" Drop pitman arm/ link still hits spring
Add a leaf/ you may not need
Slip yoke eliminator
Tom woods rear drive shaft/ came with wrong size U joint
Need to extend front drive shaft
Alxe vent tube extentions
Im sure there are more, it took me less than a week to do. Would have only be a weekend but 4 wheel parts kept sending me the wrong parts.

I like the add a leaf in the front end the added weight of the V8 make the front end still very flexy and in the rear end I removed the smallest spring and added a much longer one so axle wrap shouldnt be a problem and still very very flexy.
