Purchased a lightly used used set of OME springs and coils for 2.5” lift and all front end parts and sway bar end links for $250. Owner had for a year and went with a super lift upgrade. I will be installing this weekend and wanted a few questions answered
if possible.
Here goes:

1. Which front end part wear the quickest in the XK.

2. What is the proper spacer to add to the from struts to level it (no rake).

3. What is the best wheels spacer size to add, in order to get the most clearance, full turning radius and range of motion with out rubbing? Considering takeoffs from a new rubicon (285/70r17)

4. Is there a way to mount a swing arm on a stock(ish) bumper for the fifth wheel? All 5 newheels and tires are $650

3. Will I need a larger bump stop or a limiting strap for off-roading if capable

4. Am I overthinking this?

awesome forum so far, love the data

We did the one shocks and springs today. Went well and gave a good lift. It leveled the front with I was concerned it wouldn’t. I will test drive this week and if all is well enough I will hold off on an alignment until I find tires. I want to go with smaller rims to have more sidewall but I’m not sure.

That’s good to know. Looks like the rubicon takeoffs have 5.5 at 17 inches which is what I’ve been looking at. How ever the more I see on the road the less I want to copy. I like doing things differently where possible. Maybe something more utilitarian but either way it will be off of another rig. I’m not much in buying new if I can help it.
