    Hello everybody

    Thank you for your help.
    I looked at the lift kits at ORD and let me put one together.

    For me it's more about a slightly better road conditions than good traction in the area

    I have just ordered a lift kit from ORD 2 days ago. They do not ship international so you will have to find someone who can have them shipped. I contacted USA2YOU.nl to do so, a Dutch company, but I think they can ship to Germany as well. You might want to ask them. By letting them handle the purchase as well I save a lot of money on shipping and import fees and taxes compared to doing it myself through UPS or similar.

    Thank you .... I have not ordered yet


    Here I found a link where the spring rate of various 4 "leaf springs is listed.
    If I understand correctly, then the SJ 4" leaf springs are harder than the 4" TC HD?

    Hello together

    I look for mounting plates and round u-bolts for the rear leaf spring, where can i find this?
    Actually there are mounted square u-bolts.
    I want to assemble the nuts above.

    Look for a "U-bolt reversal kit". I've seen multiple companies that make them. Mine will be from ORD as well.
