2005 Cherokee Lift

I am interested in lifting my 05 Cherokee and wondering if anyone has used the leveling/lift kits on eBay that don't use the spacer blocks mounted on top of the strut assembly in the front but to the bottom of the strut? Heavy Metal is one of the companies that offers this stile lift for a little under $200. Any input would be great, Thanks everyone

Re: 2005 Cherokee Lift

That's what I currently have and everything seems to be working just fine. It all really depends on the brand you want to use, but they pretty much do the same job. I've had the Rough country bb on another Wk I had and it was the same, I really didnt see any difference between the kits. They are both easy to install.

Re: 2005 Cherokee Lift

Did you remove the hole strut assembly to replace the fork clevis or where you able to just switch that part out?

Re: 2005 Cherokee Lift

It turns out to be easier just to remove the whole strut and coil assembly. Of course you have to compress the coil as much as possible to give you enough "wiggle" room for when you are re-installing the longer fork; but it can be done with the assembly installed you'll probably take a little longer and wrestle with it a little more.
