Have 1995 Wrangler Sahara, do I need a pitman arm, transfer case drop kit and any form of other parts with the Rubicon Express 2.5 in standard suspension system with twin tube shocks?

Do I need any other parts for this kit?

ThomasN

  • Thank you for your question! This is a complete kit and you should not need any additional components. However, you can upgrade in the future with front and rear track bars instead of using the provided brackets.

do I need a CV rear driveshaft with this Rubicon Express 2.5 in. Standard Suspension System w/ Twin Tube Shocks (87-95 Wrangler YJ) if I'm installing it on a 1994 YJ wrangler

  • We recommend either a CV driveshaft, or a transfer case drop with the Rubicon Express 2.5 in. Standard Suspension System.

    Great Kit For the Price!

    Just finished installing this kit on my 95 YJ. Took longer than expected but only because the OEM material was a pain to remove. Most had to be torched or sawzawed off. Instructions could have been a bit more descriptive and/or included more pics or online videos. I ended up replacing all the hardware that wasn't included with Grade 8 material. supplied leaf springs are only painted black. not powder coated, so be careful not to bang around too much, or the paint chips off before installing. you will need a 1/2" drill bit for the front track bar link adapter. I actually installed 32x11.5 tires and it seems to clear nicely so far. A bit bouncy on highway, but that is to be expected with any lift kit and large tires, especially in an older jeep. Best Price i found for the material received. wish i would have thought to buy a steering stabilizer at the same time. I still give it 5 stars!

    Good lift

    This kit included all the extras you end up needing like brake line extensions and sway bar discos. It went together without out a hitch. the only issue i ran into was drilling the rear spring perch out to fit the 9/16 pin on the RE spring pack. installed the T case lowering kit and the 2.5 degree shims and have no vibration from the drive line. The RE lift is a good outfit. I am well pleased with it.

    Great install!

    I bought this because everything I needed was included. It all fit perfectly and bolted right up. It can be installed in a weekend or less, took me a couple days only because of the weather, Overall its a great option to upgrade that old stock suspension.

    Rough ride

    The lift created the angle of the rear shocks to be at a 45 degrees, which gave no room for the shocks to compress. Since this lift was specific to my year jeep the part of the Shock relocator should be required and included. I had to spend an additional $200 to have them purchased and installed .

    It's ok if you get all the part to fit like the sway bar disconnects wrong for 1992.

    Nice kit but needs a few additional parts

    This kit is almost complete however if being installed on a YJ you need a dropped pitman arm and rear shock mount extensions on the rear end.

    Solid

    The install has been pretty solid and strait forward so far. The only thing missing from the kit has been shock relocation brackets. The included shims roll the rear axle enough that the shock bodies hit the axle.

    Rubicon express 2.5 lift

    I installed this lift kit this weekend. It went on without any issues, however I he old spring and track bar bolts didn't come out easily. It look, rides and handles excellent. I did end up removing the track bars altogether, it handles better without them. I would order this again.
