Default My 1995 Cherokee Build

I began at 8:30 AM and just got home at 6:00 In that time I replaced the shackles, rear leaf springs and rear shocks. I then replaced the Front shocks and added pucks in the front. What does that all mean, well the jeep is now officially 2 inches higher and the suspension completely revamped. I am exhausted and my hands keep cramping, but it is done. Not one part left to do. It is done and I have no desire to touch the suspension for another 7 years. Pictures to come

Exact Parts Details:

Quadratec Heavy duty leafs
Quadratec bushings. Be warned these bushings had to be pressed in. No hammer no freezing only pressing would have worked.
Iron Rock off road shackles
Iron Rock off road spacers for the front
Quadratec heavy duty front and rear springs

Wow, the original 15 year old stuff was worn and it looks huge now. I mean I know it is only 2 inches but wow. Huge difference.

What would I do different:
Buy leafs with bushings already in them
Be aware I would need 8 hours to do it all

What I learned, just drop the lower control arms and avoid using harbor freight coil spring compressors.
Have two floor jacks
Be Strong
Have a nice pry bar on hand
Pay to have it done if your rich, otherwise us poor saps have to DIY.
