I’m re-lifting my Nitro. Factory springs have become way too soft and one of my rear shocks is leaking pretty bad.
So far... I have Bilstein 5100’s adjustable ride height for the front and Bilstein 5100’s rear shocks. (the rear shocks, do I need some sort of mount kits for the rear?)
I’m buying OME coil springs next.
A friend of mine made me some strut mounts/top plates similar to the Daystar ones. (Using this mount style because the front Bilstein 5100’s add 1” height with the factory spring...so they claim)
Going for roughly the same lift height if not a little more than what i have now.
** anyone know where i can get a rear adjustable panhard/track bar and maybe longer front sway bar links? I may have found some longer ones for the rear that might work

Rear shocks. You will have to look at them to see if you need any adapters. When I assisted another member here with his lift, we just needed the usual washers to fill the gap.

JBA does not sell the track bar anymore. 😢 You can probably fab one of your own.

Ever heard of anyone using Dobinson lift springs?

If i’m looking at the front suspension correctly... the top and bottom front strut insulators are the same?

Parts manual says they are.

I’m going to be replacing brake hoses while i’m at it.
Anyone know the size of the OEM brake lines? Is it 3/16” tube?
