View Full Version : TJ lift ?'s
hi fellas im new to this forum and i have a couple of ?'s about lifting my '97 jeep TJ. i plan on giving it a 3-4" suspension lift and later down the road a 2" body and i was wondering if you have to adjust drive line angles, brake lines,pitman arm,or any info that you guys might be able to offer to a new jeeper :cool: THANKS
BP44, I do atleast 3-4 lifts aweek (what a pain), My shop does alot of them. Teraflex, Fabtech and some Rancho's. I like Fabtechs lift the most as it is most complete. NO matter what get longer brake lines!! IF you actually plan on using the lift (hardcore 4x4ing) Do it right. A guy at work has a Fabtech lift on his TJ and is at Moab trashing his rigg about every 2 months and so far nothing has broke and has great axle articulation.
On another note we are installing a newly released lift from Fabtech on a 05 ford f-250 harley. We have the lift sitting in the shop and it is trully a work of art!! The front springs are coil over setup with a remote oil res.
I am going to ramble but, hear this, do it once and do it right.
Also look into Old Emu kits, those are nice also.
3" suspension lifts or higher cause you to get into SYE issues and T-case drops to fix the vibes. 2" body lifts look silly and IMHO are unsafe in a crash.
If you are running 33" tires or smaller then I'd do a 2" spacer lift and a 1" body lift. You can get a Rubicon Express budget boost for $200 or so. They flex like mad disconnected. Best deal on the planet in my opinion. Absolutely painless solution for lifting a TJ.
Thanks for the replys fellas:cool:
