The Rubicon Express spring-over axle conversion suspension system is designed for the truly adventurous off-roader, and is a fabricators delight. This suspension system moves the leaf spring perches to the topside of the axle. The result is a net lift height increase of 5.5" with stock height springs. The use of stock spec springs will maintain the factory ride quality while the spring-over configuration will greatly increase the suspension flexibility, allowing room for larger tires and vastly improving the visual appeal of your Jeep. The Rubicon spring-over conversion kit gives you the components necessary to move the leaf spring perch to the top of the axle, increasing lift and flexibility. Spring-over axle lifts retain a stock-type ride quality by retaining the original leaf spring. Installation of this kit encompasses removing the original spring perches, welding of new perches, and other adjustments. A CV-type drive shaft is recommended for this application. Net lift from the conversion is minimum 5.5-inches. For greater durability, and a total of 7-inches of lift, we recommend running RE1445 and RE1444 Extreme-Duty leaf Springs. Note: Steering modifications are needed on a spring over conversion.

Hello! In your current setup, you'll need shocks for a 5.5" lift. Front Shocks : http://jo.my/yj_5_5_lift_shocks_front Rear Shocks : http://jo.my/yj_5_5_lift_shocks_rear If you change the front shock mounting locations these front shocks probably won't work for you, as they will be too short. I would suggest you do all the modifications at one, then you'll just need to see how much higher the hoops put the mounting location. Once you have that, you can get the correct shocks for the amount of lift.
