With the factory control arms, you shouldn't go above 1.5" otherwise you will not be able to get a true alignment. Rule of thumb is 1/2" gap on the bumpstops will come out to being a 1.5" lift.

Any higher and you will rest on the bumpstops of the control arms. It will also put the CV axles at an increased angle which could create a lot of binding in turns. Aftermarket UCA's are longer and allow for factory alignment specs and still keeping the axles at a close to stock angle from t-case to wheel.

Talking

It's harder to text....but, there's threads here that give detailed instructions...including step by step pictures, etc.

I think you should search for t-bar adjustment and reindexing, and shackle installation.

I assume if you are mechanically inclined enough to make your own shackles....this project should be easy.



On the X, the stock shackles are 3" eye to eye.....so, to get 1.5" of rear lift....the new shackles need to be 6" instead. (1" more shackle length gives 1/2" more lift, etc...)
