Hello, I have a 4.5" RE lift right now. I'm wanting to add a 2" or 3" spacer to the front and thinking about adding some pivoting shackles to the rear.

I have a drop pitman arm to install on the front and a relocation bracket for the adjustable trackarm.

Do you think my RE upper & lower control arms will be alright or do you think I will need to replace them with something longer?

As far as the driveshafts....I was told the front one should be OK.....the back one maybe to short.....I was thinking about getting a longer slip yoke (2" longer) or a slip yoke eliminator

I also plan to to get longer brake lines again...steal braided with clear tubing over the top

Did I miss anything???
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and not held accountable!

If you don't have an SYE now, you will definatley need one if you go up another 2 or 3".

Are you talking about a relocation bracket on the axle side of the trackbar? Or a drop bracket on the frame? You might want to think about crossbracing the frameside trackbar mount as well as the steering gear box.

Are the contorl arms adjustable? If they are you should be able to adjust the front pinion angle. You might want to think about a longarm setup though.

Thanks for the advise, just what I needed

ahhh no I don't have SYE right now....have looked around a little online....any suggestions on brands?

long arms eh? something to look into...maybe I can find out enough info to build those myself....I already have to much invested in kits & labor....plan to get a mig welder this summer anyway

also i do not currently have any bracing done to the gear box....another thing to look into

well thant gives me some better direction to start heading in. Thanks Smile
