    I'm about to finally do some real work to my 04 Liberty, took some time to gather all the parts and do some reading up on what is what.

    I am installing the 2.5 " Skyjacker Coilover Lift with the Platinum rear shocks. I would like to do a clevis lift while I have all the parts disassembled. After doing some reading in here I am leaning towards doing a 5/8th inch clevis lift. Is that safe? Can u secure it so it wont slip? I want to fit 265/75r16 revos after this is done and would like to get it as high in the front as I can safely do so. Also, has anyone done a clevis lift and then wanted to raise the rear so it slopes forward again compensating for the clevis. I was thinking of putting in some coil spacers, but not sure if they will work or which height?


    Thx for anyone's help. :D

    Just to let you know, there have been some issues with the sky jackers front lift. i believe it was too high or something and it gave the cv's an extreme angle. some have had problems w/ it.

    Jon's right about the height issues with the skyjacker. I would suggest that a clevis lift with a skyjacker is just asking for problems. Your choice though.

    Just my 2 pennies worth.

    I believe the contact is at full droop. A bump an extended bump stop could reduce that problem. The cv angles could remain an issue in ordinary driving, particularly in 4wd.
