3.5" lift - what i have - what i need?

Recommended Posts

So @kobbs_77 has kindly pointed out a few things i should add to my list of parts for doing the lift. This is what comes with the kit - 

Front Coil Springs - QTY 2
Rear Coil Springs - QTY 2
2” Front Bump Stop Spacers - QTY 2

2” Rear Bump Stop Spacers - QTY 2

Front Track Bar Bracket - QTY 1
Rear Track Bar Bracket - QTY 1
Rear Track Bar Bracket Brace - QTY 1

Rear Sway Bar Links – 2
Brake Line Drop Brackets - QTY 4

E-Brake Drop Bracket - QTY 1

From Kobbs - sector shaft/track bar brace kit and a drag link flip kit. Also ball joints. Does anyone know if anyone offers a kit for all that?  And anything else that should be done?

 

thanks!

Front sway bar links.

Are you replacing track bars or just beacket re-enforcements?

Don't buy bump stops until you have the kit and tires of choice installed and you've flex the jeep out until point of impact.

The kit comes with the bump stops. I have the tires sitting in my garage already.

You could. But you'd be better replacing the front sway links with a quick disconnect set.

I forgot a big one....spacers.  You're gonna need 'em.  Someone else will have to chime in on what size and brand. @SidSpider, what spacers were you running with those wheels/tires?  Any rubbing?

Are you doing anything with shocks?

I don't know if I missed anything, but what what are you going for? Rocks ,mud, general trail riding, malls, or just wanna have a good looking stance.

(Nothing wrong with any of the above)

I was careful to pick a wheel that required no spacers. I just took a look at the specs of the wheels and the backspace is 4.53. They are Level8 Tracker Pro 5, model # 77769.

Smart!  And that makes sense.  That backspacing is close to Hutchinson Rock Monsters and I didn't need spacers even with 37's.

At 3.5" you will need adjustable tracbars to get your axles centred again.

So is it front and rear tracbars? Or just front?

Forgot to mention driveshafts.....  Been so long since I've had to plan one of these.  It'll live on stock shafts for a while though.

I figured since I was starting from scratch, I might as well do it right, I'm not a fan of running adapters or spacers. However, now I'm realizing I have no idea what's behind the wheels on my new Jeep....

Brown Santa brought me my lift today! 3 days earlier... ordered the rear track bar, sector shaft brace, and track bar brace today. Once they come in, I think I’ll be ready to install.
