    Next time I see Eddie I'll bitch slap him and laugh

    I just cut off my 4" Teraflex longarm and had the new Savvy Mid Arm kit installed. Night and day difference. Best suspension available for a TJ. It came out a few months ago and they're having trouble keeping up with production.

    Don't get a longarm kit if you want to play on the rocks.

    You're saying lift kit, but referring to springs. The springs and shocks are not really related to the kit other than height.

    That said, I suggest the Currie springs.

    You are correct, I meant the coil springs. I know long arms will help.

    Long arms will not help if you want to do some rock crawling. Long arms will kill your clearance. The best kit available now is the Savvy Mid Arm kit that came out a few months ago. I just had my Teraflex long arm kit cut off and put on the Savvy kit.

    LOL!! That is about the stupidest thing I've heard all day. First off, Gadget was asking about "RIDE QUALITY" - NOT "rock crawling" and this is where long arms will shine. They WILL correct your suspension geometry when lifted tall enough and that alone will improve your ride on pavement and when driving hard and fast across the desert. As far as clearance goes, clearly you were running tires that were way too small for your long arms and that's why you felt as though they robbed you of it. Of course, if I were running a TeraFlex kit, I'd want to cut them off for something different too. Glad to hear you're happy with your Savvy kit.

    Most LA kits rob your clearance because the arms hang lower, get hung up on rocks.

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.
