Default "THE GREEN MANALISHI(with a 3 inch lift)"

it's the first step towards my xj's build-up. a green cherokee with her three inch rough country add a leaf and coil kit. also, i ordered some adjustable rear shackles from R.C. to compensate for any sagging she might retain. the order was shipped ground UPS yesturday and it all came today. i guess that's because i live in NASHVILLE.Attachment 12472
im gonna try to post more pics as soon as i have a chance. my friend scott is going to be helping me while we install this lift.{he has a coil compresure and a flat 15ft. by 15ft, concrete pad in his back yard.} BIG HELP!!!!!!

here she is stock.Name:  IMG_1228.jpg

i just put teh rc 4.5 on my 89 and pb blaster is your best friend. soak everything for a few days before... If you are using impact have at it and have fun... but use hand tools (socket and wrench) on the upper bolts for the rear shocks and take it slowly... impact will just snap those little bolts and then you have a new can of worms to work with.

I used impact on everything except those shock bolts and everything came off perfectly and back on. No broken bolts at all.

Have fun.

As for the rear, wow! it was tough! this was when i started to second guess myself. i had the help of my friend and my dad, and for the most part all the proper tools. all i can say to the other new guys is "good luck" i did ,however only break one of my rear shock bolts.
