    I will be keeping an eye o your build. I'm looking into a 4.5'' lift for my xj and I will be doing the install myself like you.
    On those adjustable links in the instructions do they give you a "ball park" measurement for length? do you have to worry about pinion angle and drive shaft stuff going 4.5"?
    Thanks

    Don't know if you got your answer and don't mean to revive a (kind of) old thread but yes you do have to worry about driveline angles and all that fun stuff. Currently putting this lift on my '95

    Generally, the 95 can accept a 4.5" lift without too much problem. Driveline angles though will vary with the kit. For instance, extended shackles change the angle 1 for every extra inch of shackle length. So, you should check your angles when done. Here is a link to explain how to do it

    Yeah I haven't looked at it to see angles but it looks pretty good. Probably going to start a build thread for mine so I don't hi jack anyone's thread haha. But it looks pretty close to being good, having the sye helps also

    Check the link I provided. It tells you how to set up regular and double cardan drivelines. Looking forward to the pics
