    If I were to buy this 2.5 inch lift would I need brake line relocation brackets, different/ longer pitman arm, other drive train parts, or anything else? I am mostly concerned about the pitman arm. Thanks

    • With a 2.5 inch lift, it is recommended that brake line relocation brackets are installed. A pitman arm at that height is unnecessary. Drive train parts would not be necessary at that size lift either.

    Is this lift good for off roading ?

    • The Rough Country 2.5 in. Suspension Lift Kit will work well in off road situations and will allow you to fit up to a 32" tire

    What does full articulation mean??? I'm trying to pick the right lift for my yj n don't know what it means......

    • Hello, Axle articulation is vertical wheel travel – as in, how far the axle can move up and down relative to the chassis. Articulation is what allows the vehicle keep all four tires in contact with the ground on rough terrain, which provides better stability and allows the vehicle to maintain traction. On a solid axle vehicle like a Jeep, as one side of the axle is forced up, the opposite side is pushed down as the suspension conforms to the terrain so that maximum traction and stability is maintained. It is one of the most important factors in determining if a vehicle can get over an obstacle.

    Clearance Will this 2.5in lift kit with a 1in body lift be able to clear 33in tires with full articulation?

    • The Rough Country 2.5 in. Suspension Lift Kit w/ Shocks (87-95 Wrangler YJ) with a 1in body lift would allow for proper clearance to run 33in tires, however, you would not have full articulation. For full articulation you would need a complete 3.5in suspension lift. A great option would be FABTECH 3.5 IN. PERFORMANCE LIFT KIT W/ SHOCKS (87-95 WRANGLER YJ); Item #J101560, which can be found here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/fabtech-3-5-perf-shocks-k4022.html.

    I have my stock suspension on my Jeep and it rides rough on the road I can feel every bump. Will this kit make it a smoother ride?

    • Anytime lifting yourJeep you will hurt the ride quality and would not necessarily improve the ride quality

      Spring and shock kit

      I ordered and received the kit in a very timely time. It totally changed the ride of my 95 yj 2.5L jeep. It is a great product. The only problem I found were the wider U- bolts on the front of the jeep were to short. I had to purchase two longer U- bolts. Other than that great product. It was the 2.5” lift I believe it raised it 4”.

      2 1/2” lift on 1990 YJ

      After springs settled in the vehicle sits perfectly level. The ride is as expected and quite comfortable. Impressed with how smooth the shocks dampen pot holes and bumps. If it weren’t for the unusable u-bolts I would have given 5 stars. They were too wide for axle so used the old. Definitely a two man project. About five hours without air tools.

      All day project

      I decided to install the kit on my 94 yj myself. About 30 min into it my air compressor died so I was left with hand tools. I had to improvise with ratchet straps and blocks to situate the leaf springs into place. All in all it took my about 10 hours to install. After a Little drive around the block I re tightened everything and she’s been good and smooth on the highway and Offroad. Actual lift it gave me was more like 3 inches since the old suspension was flat. A good product I’d recommend to anyone.

      Install was easy , new bolts around, haven’t been able to test it out yet, other problems to fix first. The jeep doesn’t look level , disappointed with that, will update once I hit the road.

      Kit was well put together just be prepared to cut the leaf to frame bolts on all corners. Also don't tighten all u bolts until axles are centered on leafs.

      Lift kit

      Love the lift kit. Took a few days to put in but all in all wrath it. I ended up cutting off the old leaf springs and some of the U bolts. I do think putting longer brake lines how to smart I had to use two jacks and my high- jack what I bought with the lift kit what was a lifesaver. It's been three weeks and it rides great took it off road and it was a blast how buy again

      Dont buy

      First off my u-bolts were a quarter inch bigger and i called rough country they said call extreme terrain and get po-number, then i tried calling rough country again during buisness hours and i kept getting put on hold and went to voicmail once, never got a call back. Then the bottom leaf didnt have the center pin on center of leaf it caused the whole leaf to be hanging over the other leafs about a quarter inch making u bolts not seat correctly
