Getting ready to install a 2.5 inch Skyjacker Coil Spring Lift on a 1997 Wrangler along with new Skyjacker Shocks made for this size lift. This is all I have purchased. Can I get away with just these new items or will I have to add or change anything else. Also, will I need a spring compressor? Do you think i'll have to drop the TC any? Ok, that's all for now!.. Thanks!!
You should be fine w/ out a spring compressor. You might however need to disconnect the brake line brackets from the frame just to give it a bit more length so you can drop the axle a bit more to get the stock springs on. Thats easy though. 1 screw per side and the bracket is loose and free to move.
As for the TC.. you might not need to drop it. Depends on your rig. lol In other words some rigs get vibes with small lift (tiny's for example) and some dont. I have a 4" suspension lift on mine and 1" tc drop made it perfect so i'm vibes free.
