I have a stock samurai , Im wanting a 2-3" Lift Ive been thinking about the Calmini 3.5 lift I would think this would be more than enough for me.
My question is if I do the YJ springs with the jeep eater shackles on a spua set up will i get any lift and will it be so flexy that it migh rub a lot
I'm new to this but don't want to end up doing the wrong lift
Any help is greatly appreciated !

You didn't mention why you want to lift your Zuk. Is it a daily driver or do you have other plans for it?

Just curious as to how you can find the two low-rated aftermarket parts suppliers and not find LowRange and Trailtough, two of the best?

I have 245/65/16 tires and wheels I just put on it I made some extended shackles that gave me around a 1" lift and its not enough and rides rough
This will be mainly daily driver and field during hunting season
If you have any suggestions
Thanks for the reply

My reason for the yj springs was maybe down the road I might do the spoa
From what I was reading and they were old post, that's what a lot of guys were running But might not be a good set up on the spua
Thanks for the help
My stock springs look pretty worn out so that make sense

The YJ SPUA conversion is a good set up. You will gain 2-3" of lift. And ( bonus ) it will ride so much better, you will think you are driving a new car....

Thanks for the help, I'm sure extended shocks would be needed. would I need anything else ? , What schackles would you suggest for the yj springs that would give me the lift I need and are good quality

Take a look at this kit Wrangler YJ Complete Spring Suspension Kit

YJ springs are 6" longer than the stock front springs and a 1/2" wider. Lots of parts are needed to make this conversion work. You might be able to fab some of the parts, but the kit linked above should give you an idea of what your need.

Lots of info on the web by doing a search for "samura yj conversion".
