i am thinking of getting a 1" coil spacer for the front and a shackle that has an either 1.5" or 2" setting for the rear. the extra 1/2" would level the cherokee in the rear meaning 1" front 1.5" rear. my question is i already have a 3" lift kit with a trackbar bracket and would i need a dropped pitman arm now as ill be up to 4" lift in front and what about an adjustable trackbar bracket? please someone help!!!!! Confused

i don't know if they offer an adjustable track bar bracket. If you don't have an adjustable track bar, you should get one.

I have been told that drop pitman arms don't help....I bought one anyways...although I haven't installed it yet.

need to look into a transfer case drop kit....or better yet make one to drop the transfer case 1"

need to shim the rear axle....helps the angle on the drive shaft

need longer brake lines

you may get driveline vibration after lifting more, SYE kit handles that problem, but you also need new drive shaft after SYE installed

for the shackles I recommend looking at the Tera Flex shackles, although a bit pricy

Did I leave anything out??? Smile

i already have transfer case lowered and 4 degree shims on the rear axle that took care of the vibrations when i put the 3" lift on. i meant an adjustable track bar not bracket sorry Embarassed i wonder that if i only go another 1" if i'll get vibrations or steering problems. this is basically a daily driver.
