I currently have a 3 inch lift on my 2000 xj. I want to go up to a 4 in or 4.5 but no more. My leaf springs are saggin and i want to change that. What are some good ideas on how to get the additional lift i want.

s10 leaves work in the rear ive seen where people have posting doing that to their rigs on here

coil spacers would work for the front...

If your springs were sagging before, aal won't add lift for very long. The best thing to do is buy new spring packs.

Hi, I'm new here but have had stock Jeeps for some time. We will be considering a lift for a '90 XJ. Can the coil spacers be used without having to change brake lines or steering components? Or more directly, how much lift can you add before you have to start changing lines and components?

I had that problem with Skyjacker 3" w/ AALs. I removed the AALs and installed Superlift 3" rear leaf springs. Makes all the difference in the world. They are firmer and flex great.
