Worked well.
Overall a great buy. Can't beat the price. But I did have an issue with the sway bar links. The stock ones have ball joint at the top. The ones in the kit are not an actual ball joint. When I installed mine and lowered my suspension back down it bent both links. Not a huge deal. Picked OE up for 27 a piece at NAPA. Recommend this package.

Wrong size bushings
The bushings on the control arms were too wide. I had to grind 1/16" off the center sleeve. Not a happy camper!

Death wobble cure!
This kit was excellent! Great price, speedy shipping, and after a brake cleaner bath and some red enamel paint it looks and handles wonderful. Had to wait for warmer weather to install it.

Will this work on a 92 xj with a 4" lift and 31" tires?
Kayla D on Sep 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hey Kayla!

This kit will not work with the 4" lift.

The track bar will be too short and the sway bar links will be too short as well. Let me know if you have any follow up questions. Happy to help!

Good luck and have fun jeepin. :D

Does this fit a 2 wheel drive 96 jeep cherokee xj?
james m on Jun 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, these are specific to the 4 wheel drive model.
besides the the sway bar links would all this fit on a 1996 grand cherokee that has a 3.5 inch lift?
michael h on Nov 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, however owning and wheeling a 3.5" JGC, Id recommend beefier steering components. More-so if your stuffing 33" tires in there and trimming fenders.
