    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.

    My kit arrived today.

    4" lift kit from Offroad Design with steering box brace, u-bolt reversal kit and D60 kingpin spring and bushing kit.

    Very happy with the quality. Great service from ORD and packaged very well! Cost me about 2800 euros including shipping and import fees and taxes, but IMO it is money well spent! I did NOT want to go with a cheap lift that uses blocks.

    I asked USA2YOU.nl and they do ship to Germany. I highly recommend them. They can keep shipping costs down using their volume discount and also import fees and taxes, 300 euro instead of 800+!
