        Comments about Rancho 3.5 Inch Short Arm Lift Kit:

        It took me over a month to install by myself in my garage. I highly recomend leaving the other 3 tires on for stability while raising the corner you are working on. I have about 200 miles on this lift. Hang tight when driving over 45 mph. Uncomanded lane changes and very top heavy with the hardtop on. I can't comment on the ride. It seems softer but I also installed new tires at the same time. The inside diameter of the front brake lines supplied where too small and caused my front brakes to drag after the pressure built up to a certin point in the calipers. I swapped them out with a new set of Rubicon front brake lines. The inside diameter is a little bigger, and so-far, so-good. I should have just went with the 2.5" lift. I think that would have suited me better. This lift makes it hard to get in, and now my Jeep is top heavy.

            Comments about Rancho 3.5 Inch Short Arm Lift Kit:

            this is a great kit.Massive lower arms (pictures do not give a good size ratio) overall great ride and driveabilty. it has a 3 peice bushing design which are easy to grease(you have to use a vise or press to install bushings into arms).the hardest part of the kit was the shims for the control arm to frame backet bolts to take up space between bushing and bracket. i also upgraded my kit (RECOMMEND) with the RANCHO UDJUSTABLE UPPER ARM KIT,front lower arm bracket skid plates (protects grease zerk fittings on the arms) and 2 rear lower shock mount brackets to gain more room between shock body and rear spring peirce. you may also need a longer rear brake line ( i used a 3 peice stainless brake line kit i had already) this kit also DOES NOT come with shocks .

            Comments about Rancho 3.5 Inch Short Arm Lift Kit:

            The kit is very complete (except for shocks) including extended brake lines, adjustable front track bar and rear track bar bracket. All components are heavy duty with grade 8 or better anodized hardware. The instructions are very good with pictures where needed and all hardware bags are labeled. Removing the existing components was harder than the installation since I live in the rust belt. The ride is good when combined with my new RS9000 shocks, no bump steer or other issues.
