    Default lift question

    I have a 2002 TJ X. I am going to lift my Jeep in the next 3 or 4 weeks. I am going to use the combo of V8 ZJ springs with the crown vic springs (roughly around 3 1/2" total lift). I am going to go with shocks for a 3 - 4" lift. For money purposes I am going to do a t-case drop for the time being until I can afford the SYE set up.

    Here is my question. Is this list a pretty much complete for a basic set up or am I missing something? I know most will mention the fact of quick discos, if I can swing it they will be included in this first phase. Thanks for the help.

    I installed my 4" lift but didn't need longer brake lines....I would consider a longer pitman arm and like he said earlier..adj trac and adj control arms...

    drop pitman arms are only needed if your track bar does not run parallel with your drag link.... usually as the result of a drop track bar bracket. using drop pitman arms w/o the drop track bar bracket with, 9 times of 10, cause bad bump steer.

    for a 3.5" lift you'll want a set of adjustable control arms to set your pinion angles, an adjustable front track bar, a rear track bar bracket, longer sway bar links, and at a minimum a t case drop.
