    Good to hear your getting a lift. Thats the same lift I started with, kick ***. The one and only thing that sucks, the trac bar relocation bracket. You'll be better off tossing it in the trash. Then get yourself a good adjustable, like RRO's.

    Are you going with AAL or full packs. I went with the AAL, and it actually held up much better then I had expected, especially cause everyone talks badly about. I must say though, the SJ AAL compaired to the RE AAL, is much thicker. It causes it to ride a little rougher, however it will last about twice as long as RE's.

    as for the shocks, I got the hydro's, but my buddy got nitro's. They seemed pretty similar to me, maybe the nitros were a bit softer. See what kinda deal you can get.

    Where are you buying from anyway?

            Good to hear you're getting the leaf packs instead of AALs. I tried the add a leaf on my 86 xj and it did nothing. My springs were so sagged out the had a negative arch to them! Everyone is correct about the trackbar bracket, it is flimsy at best. Oh, and uhhhhh, you got lucky with the shock bolts. I broke all four of the rear uppers on my rust belt beauty!

              yeah and when i put my shocks on i didnt even know they would break like they do and i think the shocks took all the rust away from them lol they had holes in them from the rust but the bolts came out wasnt really to tight i got helper springs on the rear right now .. cheap ones and they got it sitting up pretty good leafs have a good smile to them right now im getting the aals prob be a month or two then i will have the full leafs i would wait a lil longer but my lower control arms are rusted pretty bad snow and rock salt didnt help them none at all so i might aswell go ahead and get the kit all i will have to do after is get to know some of these people that have all this land around here and hit some trails

                  Yeah the front flexed pretty good, but the rear (AAL) didn't really know what flex was. I think thats due to the extra high spring load rating. If you want the front to flex better, get RE control arms with Johnny Joints, thats what I did. The Skyjacker heims are ok, but clank and wear out faster.
