  • 4WD hardware 2" spring lift

    Well, its on the way, just did a ups tracking and it should be here tomorrow
    I just bought my 90 wrangler last week and allready have a list of mods I want to do
    How much do you think the original springs have saggedand how much lift will i get from the new springs ?
    What do you think of the 4WD hardware leafspring kit?
    I have been spraying down all nuts with PB Blaster last week and it helped
    Last night I got under the Jeep ( not my daily driver)and broke free all the nuts so when it comes to installation time there wont be any surprises
    I have to take a before and after pic
    I am running 30 in tires and only have about 3 inches of clearance in the front to the top of the rubber fender trim

      I have the same lift. I got about 3" of lift when I installed mine at 105,000 miles.

        How does it ride compared to stock?

          It is stiffer than stock, but it gets better with time. I have a 90 with stock springs and it feels really soft.

            I was hoping for a smoother ride acording to the reviews i have read
            Jacked the front end up tonight , took the wheels off and everything is loose ready to come off, Its nice having a air wrench.
            The only problen will be taking off the top bolt of the shock but thats what nut splitters are for
            The rebuild starts tomorrow

              they only thing that i had major problems with was the brake line bolts mine were frozen so i just fab up something new for them. the other thing is read the directions as best as you can they are not good at all.
              i got about 3 inches out of my lift as well my springs were pretty well shot their used to be a plow on the front. i never drove it before the lift so i cant tell you about ride

                The brake line relocation bracket was not what I expected, they come with sheet metal screws that dont fit in the original holes, make sure you PB blast the brake line brackets torx screws a few days before
                passenger side was easier then the drivers side, on the pass side I went in from the engine compartment, on the drivers side theres too many things in the way to get leverage with the socket
                I went in under the fender after pulling away the rubber shield
                Had to pry back the sheetmetal to fit the socket in but it gave me leverage to loosen the bolt and sheet metal snapped back into place
                The front u bolts are almost 2 inches too long and have to be cut before they get caught on the trail, going to wait until i get the rear done to make sure they dont belong in the back before they get cut
                The font is done with the wheels on and it looks sweet with the amount of lift there
                Today i will start the back and all nuts are loosened and ready to go

                    Looks good. Cut those bolts off and you are good to go. Don't forget to retighten everything after a few days.

                      UH OH!!!
                      Need all new brake lines,
                      When I was relocating them the front ones cracked and leaked
                      This site sells the complete set pre bent for 180
                      Is that a good price?

                        I installed the pre-bents with rock guard on my 86 cj, worth every penny. I'd go with the extended ss. brake hoses also. Just my opinion. Good luck.

                          X2 on the stainless. Can you cut and reflare the hard line before you replace all of it?

                            now the last spring is stuck on
                            the bolt closest to the censte on the rear spring is stunk
                            pb blaster, no good
                            heat no good
                            hammer no good
                            I can turn the shackle boldtbut its not moving off
                            Im hammering so much that the oppesing mounting plate is bending outward
