Superlift List

I think I've almost got everything covered to get my Superlift on, just wanted to find out if I'm forgetting anything.

So far I've got:

- Superlift (obviously)
- 15x10" wheels
- 33" tires are on order
- XJ driveshaft is at the driveline shop as we speak being lengthened
- Neapco adapter for above driveshaft
- 6400 shackles will be ordered soon
- 13120 Procomp short AAL will also be ordered soon

Am I missing anything?

You should get lift springs instead of the AAL

I may do that, but at a later date. Trying to keep the costs down.
This was at one point just going to be one of those BL and some good used 33's. lol
Went from about a $600 project to a $2300 project!

Looks like you have everything covered. As Tyler suggested, you could get lift leaf springs instead of the AAL and shackles. Skyjacker 4" lift leaf springs are roughly $400 and are a huge improvement.

Tell me about it.

I planned to spend $1500 to $2000 for my lift plans, but that's not how it turned out.

aal + shackle is still leaps and bounds better than stacking blocks, what superlift wants ya to do. I think the juice is worth the squeeze to get that 3" additional height. Hmmm......$85 vs $400 US....




If it's in the budget, I suggest getting some better shocks for the rear. love love love my bilstein 5100's back there compared to crappy superlift ones.

I think I'm going to run the Superlift shocks til they wear out (I'm not expecting much... maybe for the summer) then replace all four with something better!

If you're going to go AAL you should at least go with the long AAL. They tend to ride softer than the short one.
