so i bought a lift kit, and after reading about liftkits in these forums ive become slightly nervous.. my lift kit came with front springs, 2 helper leafs, and 4 shocks, is there anything else i should have? should i expect the infamous "death wobble"? thanks in advance..

At 3" you should get either a trackbar extension bracket or an adjustable trackbar to help re-center the front axle under the vehicle. In order to install the Add-A- Leaf (AAL), you'll need to remove the u-bolts. You should get new ones and not re-use the old u-bolts.

Also the AAL will eventaully sag...how soon will depend on how often you wheel it and/or load it up with gear.

As far as vibes, every Jeep is different. You might install the lift and it's fine...you might get small vibrations (a t-case drop will solve that)...you might get a death wobble...or you might get something in between the two. The only way to know is to install it and see. My standard advice for lifting Cherokees 3" and up is be prepared for the possibility of having to do an SYE.
