Made in China sticker
Bought this kit, first thing I noticed is it rode rough. If you want back surgery or a blown disc this is your kit. Second the bushing on the leaf springs were shot in about 2 months of wheeling. If you want a kit for looks but not performance this is the kit for you. 10/10 would not buy again unless I wheeled at the mall.Helpful (1)

4" lift on YJ Sahara
I've had this lift on for awhile now. So far there are no issues with this lift. It's a great lift for the price and looks great. I dont do any extreme rock climbing in my jeep but for on the road and some basic four wheeling this lift is great.Helpful (2)

The name speaks itself. The shocks are a little rough, the bushings wear out quick. I’m talking a few months max. The country part puts me in the woods more. A 4” spring lift brings me up to 6.25” of lift and I can travel over some things I could never before. Yes I’m talking about you trail logs.Helpful (2)

Everything went in as described. The only thing I had to do that wasn't mentioned was cut away some material on my shifter seal, under the shifter boot. It didn't want to shift into 2nd, 4th, or reverse until I did this. Also highly recommend getting new spring bolts for the front and rear, and some shock boots.Helpful (3)

Fun to install
I couldn't have done it by myself, but my son and I enjoyed this two day project with a couple jack stands and decent set of wrenches. Good instructions included and plan on 12 hours if you take a lot of breaks like me and have only done this once before on an international scout. Be prepared for a few rusty bolts on a 30 year old Jeep YJ. The final product looks great and actually gave me 5 inches of life because the stock springs were sagging. Jeep fits 33's now just fine. Be sure to order the part that calibrates the speedo if you go with larger tires. 1989 Jeep YJ, 2.5 motor, 5 speed trans.Helpful (5)

on the rough country 4' suspension lift for 89 wrangler do you have to buy longer brake lines ?
This kit includes brake line relocation brackets, so purchasing new brake lines is not required. If you intend to do major crawling at full articulation, upgrading to longer lines would be a worth while investment.
Will this kit work on an automatic transmission
Yes this will work with automatic transmissions.
How does it handle on the road is same as stock
This will handle on road fine but will be a much rougher ride than factory.
I have an 89 YJ. I am looking to replace the existing shocks and leaf springs. The shackles that are currently on the jeep are 9 and 3/4 long. The seem to be so long that they have assisted in flattening the leaf springs over time. What shackles would you recommend with this kit?
Stock length shackles would be used with this kit, unless additional lift is required.
Will the shocks in this kit support an additional 1 inch Shackle lift?
We do not suggest altering any kits without contacting the manufacturer.
After installation it is highly recommended to have the wrangler aligned to correct any caster and camber issues that may arise.
If you purchase the brake line extensions instead of using the brackets included in the kit, you will need both front and rear extensions.
The Rough Country 4 in. Suspension Lift Kit does not require a SYE kit for street use, though if you plan on going off road, especially over obstacles where you articulate the suspension pretty far, it will definitely be needed. For Street use, a transfer case drop will be more than adequate. It is recommended to replace the bolts for the springs, as oftentimes these are severely corroded, and not able to be reused.
Yes this lift kit is designed to clear up to a 33 inch tire. Ideal wheel specs can vary depending on the build, though a 4.5 inch backspacing is a common size that will work perfect with this lift.
We would advise at a minimum purchasing a new steering stabilizer, and spring eye bolts with the Rough Country 4 in. Suspension Lift Kit w/ Shocks.
The Rough Country 4 in. Suspension Lift Kit will include everything required to lift your automatic YJ 4", with no additional components required.
This Rough Country 4 in. Suspension Lift Kit will not require new shackles.
With the use of the Rough Country 4 in. Suspension Lift Kit we recommend either a transfer case/transmission drop kit, or a slip yoke eliminator kit.
Yes, with the Rough Country 4 in. Suspension Lift Kit you will need to purchase a slip yoke eliminator and aftermarket rear driveshaft. Also pending the size tire you add, we would suggest upgrading your steering stabilizer as well.
The Rough Country 4 in. Suspension Lift Kit w/ Shocks will feature all necessary parts in regards to your suspension. In conjunction with this kit, it is recommended to have a slip yoke eliminator, new rear driveshaft and a new steering stabilizer.
