Comments about Skyjacker 4 Inch Sport Lift with Hydro Shocks:

Great lift for the price. Gets you up in the air for little money but if you do a lot of everyday driving the ride is stiff. Not uncontrollable but stiff. Still recommend if your on a fixed budget like myself but I would recommend a higher end lift if you can afford it.

Comments about Skyjacker 4 Inch Sport Lift with Hydro Shocks:

Replaced an original suspension on a 97 jeep with this. Gave it a totally different, great look. The ride was much stiffer but the original suspension was shot. Only problem had to order a seperate part for the shifter since it would not shift into 4 low since the arm was to long and could not be adjusted any further. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.

Aside for the sway bar hardware missing, the kit was a pleasure to install. A trained Chimpanzee could install it. 4wheel parts fixed the missing hardware problem.

Comments about Skyjacker 4 Inch Sport Lift with Hydro Shocks:

The Suspension install was mostly straight forward. But they don't account for badly rusted bump-stop bolts & things like that when it comes to the time allotted.
Over all the Jeep handles better then before with a 12 year old Rancho 2 1/2" lift.
The other thing is skyjacker should offer bent front lower control arms to avoid hitting coil-spring bucket.
If i had to do it over i would have purchased ROUGHCOUNTRY 4" LIFT KIT.

      The online instructions came in handy better then the inbox ones,but other than that the lift was easy didn't take to long with basic hand tools in a bud's garage. Your going to need a pitman arm puller/dont worry there rentable. my old suspension had 163k miles on it, and after it was done it felt like a totally new jeep the flex is great i do recommend getting the longer brake lines though i bought them on this website as well.

      Comments about Skyjacker 4 Inch Sport Lift with Hydro Shocks:

      I opted to have 4wheel parts install the lift for me on my 2000 TJ. The installation cost about as much as the lift itself, but it is worth it if you don't have the time or tools to install yourself. I already had a 1" body lift, so this addtion of 4" to the suspension allowed pleanty of room for 35/12.50/15 BFG MT's. Looks great and functions well off and on road. You cannot find a better lift for the money.

        For the price you can't beat this deal. This has everything you need to put that TJ up in the sky and get some bigger treads under it. Installation is a snap being as all necessary parts are included and so is a detailed set of instructions.

            Rick,

            The Skyjacker 4 Inch Sport Lift with Hydro Shocks will work with any wheel that has less than 4.5" of back spacing. The part number of that wheel does not look like a current KMC part number so please double check that you have the right number. Hope this helps and I hope to have earned your business.

            Mac-

            Thanks for the question. The Skyjacker 4 Inch Sport Lift with Hydro Shocks will allow you to clear a 33 inch tire. You would want to run a rim that has 4.5 inches or less of back spacing. If you go to, or plan to go to a larger 35 inch tire you might want to get a rim with 3.75 inch back spacing.

            Joseph-

            Thank you for your question. The main difference between the sport lift and the Value flex kit is the Flex lower control arms. The Flex kit includes 4 Jhonny joint style arms as apposed to the poly bushing arms in the sport kit. These arms are also adjustable.
