    Calling all Evo Enforcer lifts

    So I just ordered a 4" Enforcer lift with a drag link flip and C gussets. I'm not the most handy guy in the world but I like to think I can get by. Also I have a few friends that are mechanics to help me out with the install. So my question to you guys is was there anything that you came across or any tips on doing certain things when installing the lift? Also I noticed it "recommended" that I weld the rear track bar to the axle... Is this necessary or what is the alternative?

    Tip: swap the front lower control arms last. Set pinion, and be done

    Since your welding the gussets you mine as well weld the bracket on as well. It will be strong bolted on but much stronger welded.

    As far as the lift install goes, go to the tech section here on the forum and just "follow" one of the other lift kit installs as well as your instructions. It's a super easy install. Hardest part is drilling out the hole for the drag link

    I used a "step bit" to drill the knuckle. Went through like butter.

    After installing my 3 inch Enforcer I had this issue pop up. Not sure if anyone else has had this problem but this is what I found by just turning the front steering back and fourth on jack stands.

ImageUploadedByWAYALIFE1470328627.753662.jpgonce it was snagged, it couldn't be freed because turning the wheels back to the right just made the tie-rod snag on the bracket even harder.

    Put a 90 degree grease fitting on the lower control johnny joint so you can grease it without dropping the control arm.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
