What makes you think its not flexing good? You cant expect too much from spring under but if your sway and trac bars are still connected that could cause binding.

Do the lead springs have anything to do with it ?
I feel like I don't get enough flex that's all .

1. remove track bars.
2. get sway bar disconnects.
3. you already have a lift kit, but the bigger the lift kit, then the more room you have for flex.
4. properly adjust bump stops.

That is flex in a nut-shell.

Daddyjeep is spot on. Sick jeep by the way. One of these days I'll get around to throwing my 60's on. Then I'll stretch and link her.

Check out my build thread. Basically you get rid of your leaf springs and replace them with links to locate the axles and either nitrogen shocks, coil overs, or coil springs. A four link is a lot of work and a lot of money.

You don't need to get into an SOA conversion (it's a drawn out process).

First thing I would suggest is deleting the Track Bars and adding quick disconnects. This is my stock 89 YJ, 1" lift shackles.





There is plenty of flex available to go a lot of places. It's how you utilize that flex. You already have a 4" lift so you will have even more flex than I do.

And how do I go about getting quick disconnects ?
