Hey there.
I have a mint 2001 xj Sport. 2 inch spacer lift. stock size mud tires. Wanting to do a 3-4 inch proper suspension lift and 31's.

Does anyone know a shop that can do the lift so i don't end up with vibes, or a clunky ride. and of course I am on a budget.....
It is my DD, so I am looking for something reliable and a smooth ride.

thanks!

Do it yourself, it's pretty simple, I've lifted 4 xj's

What type of lift u looking at getting? If u go with a 4" or more your gonna wanna get a SYE (slip yoke eliminator) for the t case, instead of a t-case drop,

yeah do it yourself im on xj number #8. throw in the 4 inch . loose the sway bars. keep the 2" spacer im running a 4"diamond lift short arm-(i did lengthen and amour the lower arms and boxed the stock upper arms)-decided to combine the two along with a few mods and order you own shocks-(install lift and go full flex the xj to the point of almost flopping it and measure open and compacted then order)-for extra flex .some wheel well stretching and molding. im running 35s comfortably. feel free to ask if you want more info . and do an intro post if your planning on sticking around and add a pic of your ride.

Its all bolt on but if your not comfortable doing it or not mechanically inclined or lack the tools (all things these guys seem to not think about) I run a shop in North Delta and would be glad to help you.
