  • SKYJACKER, ADD-A-Leaf or not?

    Just want to take a short poll of everyone who has used Skyjacker 4" lift kit and thought the need for a ADD-A-Leaf in the rear was nessary to help the sagging issue?

    Ya or NA

    would be great!

      I have them in the rear and I am very happy I went that way. Never heard the front springs needing them.

      On the wifes two inch over Skyjacker I used a leaf from the stock front springs in the rear.

          Get the AAL you'll need it

          Look up Josh C on Pirate or BB he was running a mix and match 4" lift springs and stock springs for his SOA

            Yes but the complications are mind boggling! Take into consideration a ladder just to get in, nose bleeds once you get there. Major drive-line issues! Why would you want to go that high?

              Great feedback, I am going forward with the Add-a-leaf. A offroad dealer was saying to not go with them right away. Then if they did sag add them later. I questioned this idea, the thought of redueing everything over again did not make sense, and seeing once again the sagging is not a isolated issue. I do not think anyone likes doing things twice.

              Thanks,
              Jonny

                the only reason i wanted to use the 4" springs was cause i say a scout with 3" springs and 35's it looked really good but he used rancho springs. had to use double cv shafts but he said it wasnt to hard.

                  If you're going to go Skyjacker, I'd upgrade with the AAL.

                  Mine never sagged.. they just never gave more than 2" of lift (versus advertised 4").. and I measured "before" with my hardtop and "after" with the top off.

                  Still only 2" of lift. Junk, IMHO. I tossed the SJ rear springs aside and went with a rear SOA.

                  I'm now looking at using the SJ rear springs SOA, and going with something else up front, SOA.

                  The front 4" springs worked fine and gave ~3.5" of lift and are still on the rig, SUA, for the time being.

                    Before I went with Skyjacker I was going to purchase a Triangel kit. But I was talked out of it. The advice was they are to stiff and you will have a more comfortable ride with SJ. I am starting to wonder if I should of just gone with the Triangles in the first place.
