Evening all, my dad and I are planning on sourcing parts for the lift without buying the whole lift because it comes out cheaper and I'm replacing certain things like the sway bar end links with something that's not OEM mopar end links.

Now the thing is that I found the part numbers specific to the 3.6, I have the 2.0

68414065AA = LF
68414067AA = RF
68414066AA = LR
68414068AA = RR

Sourced from the install instructions on Quadratec.

Now looking at the part number 68414067AA and the quantity for the 2.0; would this be the correct springs to order for the 2.0 JLU front axle?

If you have the 2.0 4 door that is correct.

The Mopar Fox shocks come out to north of $1000 alone. You won't be able to build the kit cheaper than you can find it on ebay.

Also the Mopar Fox shocks are valved specifically for the Mopar kit springs.
Ah oops

So I think I'll go for the 2in monotubes then and kinda piece my own kit together then. So far this is where I'm sitting with everything.

68414066AA LR Spring
68414068AA RR Spring
68414068AA two Front springs

Sway bar links(Will probably swap them out for QD links)
68306981AA
68306982AA

Bumpstops
68316587AA
68323933AA

Control Arm
68322798AA

Nuts
6101695

Bolts
05143356AC

I noticed this about the part numbers also when I did my install. I had down loaded the install instructions from Quadratec before my kit was ordered off EBay. The parts list that came with the kit was slightly different. Also I have to agree with the other posters, the kit shocks are much larger and specific for the Wrangler.

You can use your stock nuts and bolts.

You will want to add an adjustable front trackbar. I also added geometry correction brackets for added caster and better control arm angles.

I’m actively looking for front track bars. I’m also going to add to the list potentially; rear track bar relocation bracket.

Geometry brackets and longer control arm? Where did that put you with caster?

Rough Country makes a quality track bar at a great price. One of the beefiest on the market. I like it because it uses stock like joints that don't get noisy or require maintenance.

The longer arms and brackets (using the middle hole) put me at 6.8° of caster. A bit over spec but results in much better steering. Pinion angle still looks good as well.

I’ll definitely be taking a look at rough country for the track bar.

Who’d you use for the correction brackets?

I've used Rancho and Rubicon Express geo brackets on JLs. The Rancho are super beefy and one piece. The Rubicon Express are two piece. Both worked fine.
