hey all i got a 87 yj with 4'' lift springs is there anyway that i can gain more flex?

What did you do? Spring under 4" springs and a 3" BL? Who made the lift? A kit? Or what?

Oh, I could tell you how to make it flex, but I think a lot of people on this site would tell me that it's 'wrong'. Anyways...

Still got your track bars or anti-sway bars or any of that BS? Get rid of it...

Sell the 4" lift springs and the BL, and get some stock springs cheap and go spring over. Modify the spring clamps to allow the pack to 'pull apart' on droop. And hack some fenders and some bumpstops, as needed.

Possibly you could 3/4 elliptical the rear. I wouldn't do the front though. Oh, and you might have to modify all your shock mounting locations, probably triangulate them.

with spring over, axlewrap issues. sway bars out, make sure shocks are the right length, you could pull the leaf packs apart and remove the bottom leaf, or if you have one of those add a leafs get rid of it
