Default 93XJ; i have no idea what im doing...

welcome all, heres a build of my 93 sport that i picked up for $800 last November with 241k on it. i picked it up because i needed something to get me around during the winter (even though last one was a joke) and a buddy recommended a jeep. i didn't want a wrangler for a few reasons and i finally found my xj. after doing ALOT of reading (and still doing more) i came to the conclusion that i wanted a 4in lift. so i started piecing one together.

heres what i have so far.
-IRO 4in coil springs
-IRO 3.5in leaf springs
-IRO BPE
-JK rubicon shocks
-extended brake lines (chevy fronts & dakota rear)
-IRO double sheer adjustable track bar

heres what i plan on getting soon
-control arm drop brackets
-WJ control arms
-ZJ tie rod
-misc front end parts i need
-ZJ pitman arm

this will be a slow build, i have limited mechanical experience but my jeep will be something im going to learn on. so bear with me. here goes nothing

Default deep creep

well just started spraying down the old and worn suspension components with some seafoam deep creep. hoping it works good. looks like i still have the original parts from 93 on there. looked like i brought a neglected cherokee. the shock collars are rusting out and chip off into pieces when i tap them LOL
