Hi folks, I'm in the planning stages for my lift. I thought I had settled on the Full Traction Ultimate with Poly Performance shocks, but then I came across this post by Red Rock 4x4 in the Vendors forum:
It looks like the Clayton 3.5" with Bilsteins would be roughly $80 more than the Full Traction Ultimate 3"/Poly combo. Not enough money to make a difference. So here is my question, why would I want to go with my original Full Traction Ultimate plan vs. the Clayton? Is there something about the Clayton that makes it inferior to the FTU? Given these two lifts as your choices which would you choose?
2007 JK 4.5” lift suspension system with 37x13.5x17 Toyo Open Country MT’s on Walker Evans rims
Clayton Off Road’s JK suspension lift systems are designed to give a smooth ride both on and off road while maintaining excellent handling characteristics. Our 3.5” system is designed to let you run a 35” tire and our 4.5” system is designed to run a 37” tire. These are complete bolt on systems and can be installed using basic shop tools. Our systems include eight adjustable control arms, which carry a lifetime, no questions asked warranty against bending or breaking. The lower front and rear upper arms are dog legged for tire clearance. All of arms feature either Currie Johnny Joints or Clevite mechanically bonded rubber bushings. An adjustable front track bar and rear track bar relocation bracket are used with our systems. An optional adjustable rear track bar is available for use with the rear track bar relocation bracket for fine-tuning the rear track or to allow pinion angle adjustments when using a CV style drive shaft. JKS front sway bar disconnects, rear extended sway bar links, front and rear bump stops, front and rear extended brake lines, and 3.5” or 4.5” coils springs are supplied to complete our lift suspension systems. Shocks are sold separately and Bilstein 5100 shocks are offered as an option with our systems.
