I just got a 95 YJ and want to do the Spring over axel lift. Kooter was showing me his when he checked out my Jeep, but I forgot to get more information. Can anyone on here point me in the right direction on this "lift"
I know I need a bracket welding on top of the axel to hold the leaf springs and new shocks... I saw a kit that had new leaf springs and shocks.. are those worth it or just use the old leafs? Can anyone weld this bracket for me?

Your going to need shocks u-bolts drop pitman arm maybe an add a leaf or new springs. 4 spring perches you can get those at SCP in high ridge or where ever else. Longer brake lines SYE new rear drive shaft. This is if you are working from stock i don't know exactly what your Jeep has going on.I am sure others will chime in. While this is a long list of stuff might be better in the long run then a standard off the shelf lift kit.

A SOA (spring over axle) lift is generally not easy or cheap, especially when compared to a SUA (spring under axle) lift. If you're on a budget and/or limited skills/knowledge, it's often best to install a 4" SUA lift.
