lift quesitons on a 99 xj

had a couple cool trucks, jeeps are still a weak point for me.

i got a auto 99 xj 2 door with 4" lift front and add a leaf in rear.

the rear sits lower then the front, if i put a pair of 2 or 2.5" lift shackle in the rear is that enough to eff with the pinion angle enough to cause vibration?


aside from the reverse rake, rear tires stuff so easy with my bigger tires i need a couple extra inches clearance

ensure your drive shaft angles are correct if you are doing a shackle lift. It can change teh geometry

Very true! Although with 2 in it, the height it good and the ride is great, still soft/flexible. I should add that I didnt do the original lift in it and will never buy an add-a-leaf lift kit

yea im thinkin bout this more n more. a 3.5 - 4.5" leaf lift with proper degree shims is that too much for not having a SYE?

got a better paying job so im lookin into more then just shackles.

my front is a 4" drop bracket, if i upgrade coils, to 4.5" coils is that gonna screw everything up?

and if i put a set of adjustable arms on, id rip out the bolted in drop bracket, correct?
