Yep, you read that right. Just ironing out the last few details and then it'll be a done deal. :BANANA:

So I am considering going with a full ORI strut solution as opposed to coilovers/shocks/springs. I've read nothing but good things about them and I also have a friend who constantly sings the praises about how much the ORIs have improved his TJ's overall ride and stability. They also have the added bonus of eliminating the need for front/rear sway bars.

Any of you SFA folks out there happen to know the suspension travel measurements of your KJ? From full stuff to full extension? Trying to figure out what size strut to purchase. Will be running 37s.

Thanks!

I havent started on my KJ yet. ORI is one I am considering, I will be running 37s also. I can not answer your Q until we roll the axles and tires under the Jeep. Please let us know if you find the answer... before I get started with my build. bshooter

Your going to want 5.13's at min for 37" tires,5.38's would be better.

So that leaves out a D30 front and the 8.25 rear so what axles you going to run?

D60 f/r, 5.38s, ARB f/r, Atlas II, 1410 driveshafts.

Since you're running the RL SFA, you're the perfect person to talk with about your flex measurements. What're you at?

Edit: nevermind. Just read your jeepkj post.

This may be your answer- This is the quote from JeepKJ.com [url] ORI struts

I get like 13" of travel in the front,but it's limited to 13"(with limiting straps) as anymore and my front diff yoke would hit the control arms.12" in the rear.
