this is my first yj. I was just wondering why it has trac bars or does it really need them. It has a 4" suspension lift, 3" body, running 35's.
My problem is that it rides rougher than my old 75 CJ did.
I didn't put the lift on and thought maybe it was the trac bars.

the to your first ? no you dont need the trac bars and depending on the brand of lift it will. my superlift springs are stiffer that my buddies OME springs and they are only 6 monthes apart on use

Thanks for the help. Took the bars off, but it seems like it still rides rougher than it used to.

4 inch lift springs have alot of shape to them. The flatter the springs the better the ride. your best bet is probably doing an SOA conversion with some springs made for SOA, and some decent shocks. a torque bar will probably be nessicary in the rear, hy-steer setup in the front, fixed yoke/CV shaft conversion if you havn't already got it. Basically 35's are gonna take some work to run smoothly on a YJ, but if you do it right you'll have a simple and rugged rig. Maybe not as flexy as a TJ, but atleast easier to fix.
