If there's nothing awful w/ that kit, I think I'll end up getting it. Then ride the shocks until they're no good. At least I know what I'll be getting.
Along with the lift, I'm getting rock sliders and a TC skid plate.
Since I was taking the pictures, I don't have any of my Jeep (just a stock WJ). Here's everything I took. These were from the "green run" that was for anything down to stock. I must say, I was AMAZED with what my stock Jeep could do.
sorry DW means death wobble
- following a suspension lift, sometimes a Jeep will begin to have stability problems at particular speeds especially after hitting a bump or a pothole where the steering wheel will begin to vibrate quite violently. If the Jeep is slowed down, the vibrations may stop. This is called death wobble, and it is usually corrected by tightening steering components and replacing some with aftermarket products that are adjustable. Also, tire balancing has been known to correct the issue.
am looking into the 2.5" lift so if you want i can post what i find out in a few days.
most people go 2" since the coils are made by BSD and there a good brand.
