It's easy installation and very great product all around for any jeep owner!!
So I bought this kit as an economy kit for my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo toy. For the money it was perfect. If you buy this kit, please note the following experiences I had; -Track bar does not line up with axel mount after install. Had to use a 5K LB ratchet strap to torque it in to place. -The kit tells you to remove upper control arms (for some un-Godly reason). The instructions NEVER tell you to re-install the upper control arms. This will result in the axel rotating forward and the sway bar links will not line up and the coil springs will curve. I attempted this with the front...FAIL on the company. Made no sense. -The kit says to remove the rear upper control arms also for install (never says to re-install), I DID NOT DO THIS STEP, it was stupid and irrelevant. Nor did I disconnect the rear sway bar and the kit installed perfectly in the rear. I simply dropped the rear axel, pulled old springs, lower control arms and through in the new ones. Simple and fast. -Rear track bar relocation bracket in the kit does not match the one in the instructions. The one in the instructions looked very different and required drilling. The bracket that actually came in the kit required no drilling but WAS NOT an EXACT fit by any means. It was very off-center and resulted in the 1/2 bolt holding it on only having a few thread on the nut to hold it in place. -The kit says it doesn't include a transfer case lowering kit, but it did include 1" cross member lowering spacers..... -I do have a louder rumble in the front end now. I don't notice a decrease in handling regardless of the rumble. I went 70 mph down the highway and it drove fine. -Had to buy several new bolts cause the old ones were rusted and either broke or had to be cut off. This kit should come with ALL NEW REPLACEMENT HARDWARE, since it is designed for a vehicle that is over 20 years old. -Lastly, the instructions are absolutely terrible and need to be written by someone who understands mechanics and instructing. The instructions are written in a "professional mechanic to professional mechanic" way, SO if you do not understand vehicle suspension and basic mechanics, you are going to have a difficult time installing this kit.
bent the leaf out on the trail was able to get it home and the costumer service people did everything they could to help me get back on the trail and even still drove it as my daily driver for months with the bent spring
is going with the cheaper kits worth it.You usually get what you pay for.

Does this kit include two track bar relocation brackets? It shows two brackets in the picture that I assume are the track bar brackets. I'm familiar with the rear relocation bracket, but is one for the front included as well or will this kit require that I drill another hole in the factory track bar mount?
