I am hoping to lift my o4 cherokee crd at 3" for tyre clearance, to get some descent boots on.

Has anyone fitted a lift kit?

It has been suggested to simply put heavy duty springs on..from the US. Where can i get them here ?

I did not think they did a lift for the CRD, just the petrol ones

Hello

rear springs and shocks at 3" is easy....

Problem youface is that the front lift is provided by aluminium billet strut spacers. The struts on a diesel are completely different to the petrol models and so won't fit.

As i say I can do the rear easily but the front is a no-no.

David

I would not go for heavy duty springs yes they will lift it but the ride is not that comfortable on my XJ you really need longer springs not stiffer ones.

I still reckon you are going to struggle with those front strut / coil spacers on the dieselk model as the struts are completely different to the petrol models.

I would stop searcjing in the States and start to look in Australia if I was you - RHD and diesel. Do OME do anything that Arbil could importt for you??

Try this

Don't like the look of their prices though!!!

I have asked the Liberty lift question many times of Rough Country and there answer is a simple one - not anywhere near enough diesel Jeeps of any sort in the US for them to bother making a kit for them.

If you KNOW what you are doing then you could fabricate your own lift, if you don't - then don't try.
