I've been thinking about the future of my jeep and I was just wondering what is the best way to upgrade the suspension on my yj? What are my options?
How much did you pay for it? Did you install yourself?soldiertrav said:[/IMG]
Totally love my black diamond coilover. lost of labor involved however. Schocks just rebuilt for 700. runs like a champ again though. Does well on road and AWESOME off road.
I want ityour options are as vast as you wallet is.
Obviously links and coils is the best setup, but if you cant fab it yourself you are going to end up paying a TON for it.

There is 4200 bucks to link front and rear. Then add the cost of coilovers, and the price keeps going up
It means how far back (rear) and forward (front) the axles are moved from their stock location. Which provides a longer wheel base. You want a longer one then a TJ's stock, but you dont want it too long for breakover angle problems.YJKyle19 said:RKUKYJ01 - stock wheel base
RKUKYJ02 - 5" rear stretch - 101" wheel base (est.)
RKUKYJ03 - 8" rear stretch - 104" wheel base (est.)
RKUKYJ04 - 12" rear stretch - 108" wheel base (est.)
**please note on YJ's we push the front axle forward approximately 2" on all systems!
When it says 5, 8 and 12" rear stretch does that mean how high it sits or how much it can flex? And why would the wheel base change? The lift will push the front axle forward? :Confused: lol
Oh I never knew that a kit could actually push the axles apart... I didn't know that was possible without messing everything up... wow that's interesting... How do you measure your wheel base? Center bore to center bore?IndyJeepMan said:It means how far back (rear) and forward (front) the axles are moved from their stock location. Which provides a longer wheel base.
