Default Lift kit

Looking for info on a SPOA lift kit. I wanna buy a kit that I can bolt on as I do not weld or wanna pay someone to do so. I'd rather change the leafs as well as I wouldn't wanna mess with it twice as the current leafs don't look to promising. Also, are there any other alterations I will have to do. I wanna put on 31's.
Is there a spoa lift kit that anyone recommends. There are a few out there but I can't seem to make up my mind w/o others opinion.

Samurai SPOA:*Bolt-on SPOA for Suzuki Samurai

I have a few buddies with this kit, no issues with it for them.

I personally would weld it because I like to have peace of mind and not have to worry about bolts and crud breaking.


ALSO, to run 31's you can get a 3" lift leaf spring and not go SPOA. Less axle wrap and more stable, less having to deal with additional parts to make everything ride smooth (i.e. steering)

I would definitely get a drop pitman arm or Hi-Steer.

Thanks for the info. I just may go with the 3" leafs. If I do it that way do you still recommend the hi-steer?

I would always reccomend hi-steer, at least a stage 1 kit.

However, it depends on your driving style. You may not need it. 3" leafs will be easy to install and give you the lift you need.

Here is a picture of my buddies on 3" missing link and 33" Thornbirds

That looks good but I think I like the looks of the spoa better. Anyway I'm still going with your advice with the 3" springs as it will be mainly a vehical to show around town with. I'll do the high steer also.
I also ordered a slightly used set of Con Ferr front and rear skid plates and a mighty kong transfer case should these change the way I lift the Zuke?
Next it tires. I said I'd like 31's but how wide is it safe to go with and what brand would you recommend. I'm a fan of the BF Goodrich all terrain. I need something that would be suitable for beach sand and road. Sorry so many Questions but I'm new at all this and thanks in advance

Going spoa you will gain 3 or so inches along with the 4" there should not have an issue with clearing 31s.
I used toyota axles and trail toughs bonzeye yjs and clear 35x15.5x15s but have to run a spacer to clear my steering arm.

Just done SOA conversion on mine. My new 31's fit nicely. Brother done all the welding on it though. Wasn't too hard to do.

Ran into an issue... almost everything is done but the front stablizer. It won't go into place is there a adaptor I can buy to mount it back to where it goes in the front?
