I have an unlifted original owned 05 Jeep Liberty KJ Renegade 4x4 with about 180k miles. I do take it off road on rocky hilly unmaintained 4wd only trails.


I got the original standard Jeepin By All JBA front upper control arms a number of years ago, and recently new lower ball joints.

It's about time to replace the original shocks/springs so I am planning to get a mild lift.


Frankenlift and JBA lifts have been cancelled years ago and OME is not available anywhere now while I have read a few critical posts about Skyjacker lifts, and at 2.5" they are at the top end of how much I would want to lift anyway.


I am planning on the Ironman 1.5" lift, and the parts that need to be replaced anyway, tie rods and upper ball joints.


Are there other parts that should be replaced at the same time? bushings? upgraded bump stops?


Any feedback on Ironman lifts?

I have had the Ironman springs installed since 2014 along with 1/2" clevis spacers up front along with Bilstein shocks/struts. Gave me about 2"- 2.5" of total lift up front. A really good setup! Very pleased with the results, ride, and road handling characteristics.... :D

*They have changed colors since I purchased mine, but they still work perfect.

Struts/Shocks:
Bilstein: 4600 Heavy Duty (B6)
Part Number Position
24-139168 Front
24-139175 Rear

Ironman Springs
Front: JEEP014C
Rear: JEEP015B
